During her appearance on the Kapil Sharma Show on Sunday, Neetu Kapoor spoke about her late husband Rishi Kapoor and how his tweets sparked a storm. “I used to get angry at him a lot,” she said of his tweeting habits.
Neetu once remembered that she had not seen what Rishi was tweeting. They were temporarily staying in a different house as their house was under renovation. When she went to Krishna Raj’s house with some of the staff, she saw an angry crowd chanting slogans against her husband.
“There were 300 people on the road, there was a police truck and ‘Rishi Kapoor, hey hai (Rishi Kapoor falls)’ and all that. Maine Paula Yeh Kia Ho Gaya (I was wondering what happened), I was so scared,” Neetu recalls. A police inspector approaches her and asks her to tell Rishi to soften his tweets.
“Mereko itna gussa aaya, maine kaha chalo is just a saath (I was so angry, I asked the inspector to come with me) and tell him what’s going on here. He should know, band tabhi kareng (only then will he stop),” Neetu said. She comes home to find Rishi watching TV and tells him that the police inspector wants to talk to him.
But Rishi startled her with his response as he was informed of the situation. “Courage (requires courage), sir,” he said.
Three days later, Neetu finds a police officer outside their house and tells her that there is a threat to their lives. She added that only after that Rishi moderated his tweets.

Rishi died last year after a two-year battle with cancer. On his birthday last week, Neto remembered him by posting it on Instagram. She said she’s learned a lot during the “past shocking few years,” when he was undergoing chemotherapy in New York, about keeping spirits high even during tough times.
“Hope and strength is what taught me…the value of every day…we are all missing him today!!! I can imagine how excited he is for his 69th birthday!!! I’m sure he is celebrating with his family there. Happy Birthday Kapoor Saab,” she wrote .
