The actor had hit the headlines a few days before his death as well when he was constantly tweeting about the after-effects of the Coronavirus lockdown. Due to his outspoken nature he often got into Twitter wars on the microblogging site.
But, Rishi was fierce and fearless so he was not one to take nonsense. The actor always made sure to hit back at those nasty trolls.
Here are instances when Rishi Kapoor hit back at trolls with his sharp replies.
Lesson on lockdown
This happened weeks before his sad demise when the central government announced a nationwide lockdown. May trolls asked Rishi Kapoor if he had stocked a good amount of alcohol to spend time at home. Shutting down one of his trolls, Rishi called him an idiot and slammed him for his needless remarks.

This happened when Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan became parents in 2016. It is no secret that The two were brutally trolled for naming their son Taimur. So Rishi stood up for them saying, “Why are people so bothered what the parents want to name their child please?Mind your business,it’s got nothing to do with you.Parents wish! (sic).”

Shutting down Kamaal R Khan
Back in September 2015, Kamaal R Khan trolled Rishi Kapoor and called him a side-hero. He said Rishi is someone who never got the mainstream attention. Showing him his real position in the industry, Rishi wrote back, “This man is a failure in life. He tweets all garbage as he is a failed,flop actor. Avoid him, he is a fundamentalist (sic).”

I guess this needs no explanation. Rishi Kapoor was clearly waving off those lakhs of Ranbir Kapoor fans who think he can ‘pass on a message’.
Back in 2016, Rishi Kapoor aimed at the entire Twitteratti and slammed them for converting the micro-blogging platform into a place where people are judgemental. Rishi wrote, “Why are people so judgmental and moralistic on this platform? Don’t like it,delete me,like I do. Fuck you! It’s my prerogative to comment (sic).”

Rishi was battling cancer for the last two years as he was diagnosed with leukaemia. The actor breathed his last in a Mumbai hospital. Apart from his film, his massive Twitter following will always miss him for his strong stand on social and political issues. May his soul rest in peace.
