New Delhi:

Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor has shown disagreement with branding ‘everything’ after Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.  In a series of tweets, Kapoor raised questions over naming of public institutions like Indira Gandhi International Air Port, Rajeev Gandhi Udyog (Film City) after the names of Nehru-Gandhi family ancestors.  

“Why Indira G airport International? Why not Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh Ambedkar or on my name Rishi Kapoor. As superficial! What say?” Tweeted Kapoor. 

“Imagine Mohamad Rafi Mukesh Manna Dey Kishore Kumar venues on their name like in our country. Just a suggestion” he added. 

The 63-year-old actor even raised doubts over renaming of Mumbai Film City. “Film City should be named Dilip Kumar,Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar ya Amitabh Bachchan ke naam? Rajeev Gandhi udyog Kya hota hai? Socho doston!” 

“We must name important assets of the country who have contributed to society. Har cheez Gandhi ke naam? I don’t agree. Sochna log!” said the Damini actor. 

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

“Change Gandhi family assets named by Congress.Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata link road. Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha ?” He said in a Tweet.
