Most of the Bollywood celebrities believe in keeping their thoughts to themselves instead of winding up in another controversy but one actor who has never shied away from openly voicing his views on socio-political issues has once again blasted a politician for his irrelevant comments.

The 65-year-old actor, Rishi Kapoor who once backed Karan Johar for his nepotism while mentioning the importance of merit in the success of a person has now criticised Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi for his comment on 'Dynasty legacy'.

Recently, Rahul spoke at University of California at Berkeley where he expressed his views on 'dynasty politics'. From Mulayam Singh Yadav to Amitabh Bachchan along with their sons, all were mentioned in his address, whom he cited as examples of dynasties.

Rahul's thoughts were not appreciated by many. One of them was none other than Rishi Kapoor who himself comes from an influential family which has been contributing to the Hindi film industry since the past 90 years.

Rishi Kapoor took his anger out on Twitter posting some harsh tweets addressing the Congress Vice-President and has criticised him for his comments and advised Rahul Gandhi to work towards earning the respect of people instead of forcefully staking his claim.

One of his most hard-hitting tweets said, "So don't bullshit people on "Dynasty" You have to earn people's respect and love through hard work not zabardasti and gundagardi."

Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Smriti Irani held a press conference after Rahul Gandhi's speech and openly criticised his act and went as far as calling him a 'Failed Dynast'.
