Mumbai: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor minces no words when it comes to expressing his views on sensitive matters — be it blind religious beliefs as well as the meat and beef bans. That, he says, does not make him “anti-Hindu”.
Rishi got in a Twitter spat with a user, who wrote: “@chintskap Fools like Rishi kapoor eat beef; have a mini church at home and then call themselves a Hindu and comment on Hindu Saints. Think!”
The “Bobby” actor retorted: “What I do, eat, drink or pray is none of your business.”
Rishi, who has been vocal about eating beef in the past, then added: “There’s a perception that I am anti-Hindu. Sad. I am a ‘Proud’ two time a day praying Hindu. But I respect other faiths too. I just say the truth.”
In May, the Maharashtra government banned beef. The 63-year-old actor then landed in a soup after tweeting that he is a “beef eating Hindu”.
“I am angry. Why do you equate food with religion?? I am a beef eating Hindu. Does that mean I am less God fearing than a non eater? Think!!,” he tweeted back then.
