Rishi Kapoor is one celebrity, who, without hesitation, puts forth his opinions and views on Twitter. The actor has at times paid a hefty price for being vocal on the social media platform, from being trolled to cases filed against him, he's gone through it all.

This time, it was Congress' Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who had to face the wrath of Rishi Kapoor on Twitter.

According to reports, during a recent press conference at Berkeley in the USA, Gandhi was prodded with the allegations of Indian National Congress party being a dynastic one, and he reaping its benefits.

To which, he reportedly defended himself and involved India on the whole, saying, "Most of the country runs like this. So, don't go after me. Akhilesh Yadav is a dynast, Mr. Stalin (DMK supremo M Karunanidhi's son) is a dynast, Mr (Prem Kumar) Dhumal's son (Anurag Thakur of the BJP) is a dynast. Even Mr. Abhishek Bachchan is a dynast, also Mr. Ambani. That's what happens in India and just the way India runs. The real question is if that person is a capable, sensitive person."

Well, the Abhishek Bachchan 'dynast' remark didn't go down well with Rishi Kapoor and he ridiculed Rahul Gandhi on Twitter by asking him to not 'bulls**t people about dynasty'.

Rishi Kapoor wrote, "Rahul Gandhi. In the 106 years of Indian cinema of India, Kapoor's contribution is 90 years. And each generation is chosen by the public on merit. By God's grace, we are in 4 generations. Prithviraj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor-Males. Besides all others. You see otherwise. So don't bulls**t people on "Dynasty" You have to earn people's respect and love through hard work, not zabardasti (force) and gundagardi (hooliganism). (sic)"
