An FIR has been filed against KRK for his abrasive tweets on Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan on the occasion of their death. Even though the critic hasn't been apprehended an investigation is on.
KRK lands in trouble for his tweets
KRK has never been on the right side of Twitter, some would say he never really tried. The active Twitter user has always been known for his outrageous tweets, his insults directed towards many members of Bollywood. Yet, he continues to be on Twitter never really quietening down.
Now, an FIR has been filed against KRK over his tweets on Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan when the two actors passed away. When Rishi Kapoor was admitted to the hospital, KRK had tweeted on April 30th, "Rishi Kapoor has admitted in HN Reliance hospital. And I want to say to him:- Sir theek hokar jaldi wapis aana! Nikal mat lena! Kyunki daaru ki dukaan, bas 2-3 din ke baad khulne hi waali hai. (Sir get well soon and come home fast! Don't leave before then! Because, liquor shops will open shortly in another 2-3 days.)"
The comment was not well-received by Rishi Kapoor's fans and followers. Moreover, his comments against Irrfan Khan where he said, "Irrfan Khan excesses with his producers and does not behave in a manner with them. He took money from the producers, but did not complete the shooting of many films." This was seen as distasteful as well.
When the row began KRK tweeted on April 30, after many on Twitter protested the actor, "Actually, it should be very simple that if you don't like my thoughts, then don't follow me. Because I don't ask you people to follow me neither follow you back. But you people are hypocrites who do follow me and want me to tweet ur thoughts instead of mine."
