The reaction that the actor received on social media was a mixed bag as there were many who got offended while others praised his gesture. Several followers rebuked Rishi Kapoor for wishing a country which does not have friendly bilateral relations with India.
Twitter controversies aside, on the work front, Rishi Kapoor is currently working on 102 Not Out starring Amitabh Bachchan.
