He wrote, ‘I had said a few days ago that Corona will not go away until some famous people are not taken with them. Then I did not write the names because people would abuse me, but I knew in advance that Rishi and Irfan would go. I also know whose number is going to come next.
When Rishi Kapoor was admitted to Reliance Hospital, KRK tweeted- ‘Rishi Kapoor has been admitted to HN Reliance Hospital. I just want to tell him that Sir, come back soon after getting well, don’t take out, because the liquor shop is about to open in only 2-3 days.
Rishi Kapoor’s health was tweeted.
This is a strong message- Rahul issued a statement on the arrest of Kamal, saying- Kamal has been arrested because of my complaint. I appreciate and thank this work of Mumbai Police. With this arrest, Mumbai Police has sent a strong message against such people.
