BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: The 21-day lockdown seems to getting to Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor. Both his patriotism and tasteless humour is coming out as a result. He has been in the eye of the trolling after lashing out at a user as well as being lashed at by Twitterati including director Shoojit Sircar.
Rishi had shared a picture of a man with enlarged ears, which he joked was a result of listening to the wife for 5 days continuously. He wrote, “On a lighter note! Side effects of the Coronavirus”.

This was not taken lightly as the Piku director as he lashed out at Rishi by saying that women have been locked down in homes for generations serving the family.
Another user wrote, “Sir this Misogynist and sexist AF! Itni hi problem hai life mei toh shaadi nahi karni chahiye thi na life mei! It’s 2020, wife jokes are NOT funny!”
Now when a netizen poked his funny side by asking whether he had stocked up on alcohol for three weeks for the countrywide 21-day lockdown, it didn’t go down well with Rishi. A visibly enraged Rishi warned, “Anyone cracking jokes about my country or my lifestyle, will be deleted. Be aware and warned. This is a serious matter. Help us to tide over the situation.”
ANYONE CRACKING JOKES ABOUT MY COUNTRY OR ON MY LIFESTYLE, WILL BE DELETED. BE AWARE AND WARNED. THIS IS A SERIOUS MATTER. HELP US TO TIDE OVER THE SITUATION.
