    Rishi Kapoor turns angry man again! This time, the veteran actor has slammed the British Airways and called them 'racist' after an Indian passenger and his family were allegedly asked to de-board a flight in the UK. While the incident took place in July, it's now that Rishi has chose to react over it.


    The 'Mulk' actor unleashed his fury on Twitter and revealed about his own not-so-pleasant experience with the airlines. Rishi tweeted, "Racist. Dont fly British Airways.We cannot be kicked around. Sad to hear about the Berlin child incident. I stopped flying BA after the cabin crew were rude and had attitude not once but twice even after being a first class passenger. Fly Jetair or Emirates. There is dignity."

    The incident took place on July 23, when the family was travelling from London to Berlin on a British Airways flight.

    Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has directed the aviation regulator to obtain a detailed report from British Airways over the incident.

    The development comes after the passenger, identified as A.P. Pathak a Joint Secretary level officer in the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, complained that he and his family were discriminated against on racial lines.

    Meanwhile, a few days back, the actor was in news for getting major burns from the Twiteratti after he failed to recognize his co-star Sridevi in one of the videos from his old films.

    Rishi Kapoor often finds himself in news for his controversial tweets. When we recently asked his son Ranbir about the same, he told us, "Most of the times when he tweets something, when my mother feels he might fall in trouble, she messages or calls me up late night saying 'Look what's he has done now and he's already gone to sleep. He has two drinks down and said something.' She then lectures him. But yaar, he is an honest guy. He doesn't keep anything censored. If he feels about something, he will say it. He is not doing it for publicity or impact. He actually feels it and then impulsively writes it."

    "There are very few people like this in the industry. Most of the people are just trying to portray a very different, cosmetic, nice person image of themselves. But my father is really brave in that sense. He understands that people may hate him for his opinion, but he has an opinion and wants to exercise it like any citizen of this country," Ranbir further added.
