Rishi Kapoor trolled for plugging his film Mulk in a tweet about Imran Khan and Pakistan elections
Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who is going to be seen on the big screen in the upcoming movie Mulk, sent out a tweet congratulating the newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, former cricketer Imran Khan, in a way that has irked many in the Twittersphere.
Rishi Kapoor tweeted: "Well spoken Imran Khan. I have been saying whatever you said on all channels past two days regarding India-Pakistan! I hope you succeed in making your “Mulk” have good relations with my “Mulk”"

The actor was welcoming Khan’s post-victory speech in which the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief said that his country is ready to improve relationship with India. But the Twittersphere saw the above tweet as Rishi Kapoor's way of plugging his movie weeks before release. This is what the former cricketing legend and soon-to-be Prime Minister of Pakistan said regarding India:
As far as India is concerned; I was disappointed with how Indian media portrayed me in the past few weeks. As a villain. I am that Pakistani who has travelled through India because of my cricket. @ImranKhanPTI#PrimeMinisterImranKhan — PTI (@PTIofficial) July 26, 2018
I am that Pakistani who believes that to improve economics in the sub continent trade between India and Pakistan is important. This will be beneficial for both the countries. @ImranKhanPTI #PrimeMinisterImranKhan

The leadership of Pakistan and India now need to come to the table to resolve this and end the blame games. We are stuck at square one. @ImranKhanPTI #PrimeMinisterImranKhan — PTI (@PTIofficial) July 26, 2018
If India comes and takes one step towards us, we will take two steps toward them. Right now it is one sided where India is constantly just blaming us. @ImranKhanPTI #PrimeMinisterImranKhan — PTI (@PTIofficial) July 26, 2018
Trools weren't too pleased with Rishi Kapoor's tweet and responded in the following manner:
'Mulk' unka hai. Hamara 'Desh' hai.
