Upset Rishi Kapoor hits back at Sonam, Deepika
Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s unpleasant comment about Ranbir Kapoor did not go well with Rishi Kapoor and mom Neetu Singh. They replied back to both the actresses and also showed their annoyance to Karan Johar who hosted the talk show, ‘Koffee With Karan’. Rishi Kapoor charged Karan of provoking both the actresses to pass ridiculous comment about their son. On the chat show, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone who was linked up with Ranbir spoke funny and silly things about him. RK is the common factor between them and Karan being the host of the show raised Ranbir's issue to make the show spicy.
Sonam said that she does not find Ranbir sexy at all and her misconception about him ended when he dropped his towel in ‘Saawariya’. When Karan asked Deepika what she wants to gift Ranbir. She said a packet of condoms.
All those derogatory comments upset Rishi and Neetu and they expressed their annoyance for the threesome for running down someone.
An industry source reveals, "Neetu was so mad when she heard what the two actresses had said she called up Karan and fired him for allowing that kind of talk on the show." Rishi Kapoor to spoke out his hurt and anger.
Although he claims he hasn't seen the show, he admits, "We definitely feel cheated and hurt. My wife and sister are in New York and they were very upset when they heard about the show. Neetu was very hurt and upset and she spoke to Karan about it. We didn't expect this from him because Karan happens to be a close friend but he instigated both the girls to say all those things!"
A disturbed Rishi continues, "We've done so much for Karan... We have gone twice on his show. We even gave bytes for the show featuring Imran and Ranbir out of pure love for Karan.
In return, what does he do? Provoke guests on his show to get better TRPs? There's no respect for relationships. Neetu and I go on his shows out of love for him. He gets paid for the show while we do it for love and affection. Karan shouldn't do this to us or all the Kapoors will severe ties with him and not work with him."
When pointed out that it wasn't the host but Deepika and Sonam who poked fun at his laadla, Papa Kapoor says, "Well to put things in the right perspective, all I can say is that with both the girls it is a case of sour grapes. I have known Sonam's father Anil for years.
All I will say to the girls is: in stead of doing all this concentrate on your careers. Why do you run shows that have so much gossip? I have done Koffee With Karan earlier with Neetu, my brothers and sister; there was great camaraderie and laughter on our show. We didn't run anyone down. I don't think you should encourage people to wash dirty linen in public. You will never see Ranbir running anyone down."
When asked if he'd tried to talk to Anil about Sonam's comments, Rishi says, "What can I say to Anil? Everyone is family here and these girls are like my children. I don't want to get into fights involving my son's friends.
It just shows their (Deepika and Sonam) class. I would like to tell them to stop giggling all the time and instead grow up and behave maturely. They are there on the show because they are their father's daughters and not because of their work! I would advise them to stop talking about their colleagues and running them down."
