Facebook users also came in support of Kapoor
“Respected Mr.Rishi Kapoor Sir. I totally agree with your angriness on today’s stars kids by not attending Sir Vinod Khannas funeral. It’s the saddest part but today's genre who have just studied a class more than we all of us think they are much ahead above us are very much selfish, where they think no end to themselves. Yes they are not aware that their life, their journey started thru their parents hard input which gave them a comfort living and today they can stand in front of the World alone rather than welcoming their parents thus not being bold openly that My Parents are d one who showed me what is life. In short today's genre is Greedy, Selfish, Dis-Respected Fools I sincerely call them,” Merzy Merchant of the Facebook users wrote on his wall.
