The netizens gave a mixed reaction to this fiasco on Facebook and Twitter. Of course, how can Bollywood be left behind; the who’s who of the industry also expressed their opinions on the social media platform. But one veteran actor, Rishi Kapoor had to take a call to retire from Twitter. Here is the complete story of Rishi Kapoor’s decision to deactivate his Twitter account.

The veteran actor then decided that it was too much to take from the blunt and outright attacks on Twitter. And decided to deactivate his account.

Recently in a candid conversation with NDTV, Ranbir Kapoor stated that his father, Mr. Rishi Kapoor has always been forthright about his opinions and emotions. “I have been privy to this all my life, its just that world will get to see this side of his now”. He added “Unless somebody has got a valid point and logic, it is very difficult to change Mr. Rishi Kapoor’s opinion.”

Whatever twitter war we are witnessing, Twitter happens to be one platform where everybody has a say on equal terms and express their opinions.
