Rishi’s merit lesson for RaGa
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's idea of citing Bollywood as an example while discussing dynasty politics in India during his Berkeley speech has irked veteran actor Rishi Kapoor. He tweeted, “Rahul Gandhi in the 106 years of Indian cinema, Kapoor's contribution is 90 years. And each generation is chosen by public on merit.” The actor further added, “So don't bullshit people on dynasty. You have to earn people's respect and love through hard work, not zabardasti and gundagardi.” In his speech, Rahul Gandhi mentioned Abhishek Bachchan while making a statement on how most of India runs on dynasty politics.

She plays Veronica in the film, directed by her beau Darren Aronofsky.“I popped my chest rib and I tore my diaphragm. It actually took a long time to heal but emotionally I was better as soon as we finished that scene,” the actor added.
