Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor is not one to mince words. Be it his son Ranbir Kapoor’s personal life, his opinion on the society or our political system, he rarely holds back when it comes to expressing his views.

In a series of tweets, Rishi on Tuesday snapped at the political system of India and the Gandhi family. The 63-year-old actor questioned the naming of roadways, airports and railway stations after the Gandhi family members.

Rishi has been winning fans on Twitter - which he joined in 2010 but got active only a few months ago - with his opinionated, self-deprecating and charming self. And has often created storms online with his frank and outspoken tweets.

“If roads in Delhi can be changed why not Congress assets/property ke naam? Was in Chandigarh wahan bhi Rajeev Gandhi assets? Socho? Why?” the actor tweeted.

The Kapoor and Sons actor, with these allegations, added the fact that the names should be after people from every genre, who have contributed to the society. “We must name important assets of the country who have contributed to society. Har cheez Gandhi ke naam? I don’t agree. Sochna log!” he tweeted.

The veteran actor then asked for suggestion from people on whether or not the names can be after film personalities like Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and others.

“Raj Kapoor has made India proud over the years all over even after his death. Certainly more than What has been perceived by politics,” Rishi added.
