Rishi Kapoor has often grabbed attention on social media for the wrong reasons. The 65-year-old actor became a target of trolls again as he failed to recognise his co-star, Sridevi. In fact, Rishi Kapoor walked into the trap by sharing a clip from his film and asking who the actress was.
The actor took to Twitter and captioned the video, “What film is this? And I cannot recognise the actress with me!”
Tweeple were surprised as the Mulk actor couldn’t identify that it was Sridevi, with whom he has featured in over 10 films. Taking to the comment section, people bashed the actor on this ‘ignorance’. Here is how they reacted.

Nobody would have recognised you if she had not worked with you in Nagina and Chandni.

The short clip is from the film, Kaun Sachcha Kaun Jhootha, which released in 1997.
Earlier, in an interview to Hindustan Times after Sridevi’s death, Rishi Kapoor had remembered the actress by sharing a memory from the shoot of the same film. “I have lovely memories of her as an actor and a person. When she was carrying her first child, Boney Kapoor had come to meet her on the set of our film Kaun Sachha Kaun Jootha (1997),” the actor had said.
“That was the last time I worked with her, and it remains my parting shot with her,” he added.
