Gearing up to return to India in September this year, after battling cancer successfully in New York, veteran actor Rishi Kapoor is often spotted having lunch with actor-wife Neetu Kapoor in an NYC restaurant or with industry friends who keep flying down to meet him. The actor is also spotted taking strolls in the splendid weather of the city and on one such walk recently, Rishi happened to cross a sneaker store, the prices of whose products blew his mind.

Taking to his Twitter handle, the actor shared his reaction as he tweeted a picture of one of sneakers from the store and wrote, “Biggest sneaker store I have seen with more than 12,000 styles and models in NY. Shocked to see sneakers sell for $40,000/$27,000/$25,000/$20,000 etc…Most sell for$5,000 and above. (sic)”

Adding filmy humour to his shock, Rishi added to his thread as he tweeted,  “Zoom on to the prices below and see it.  Reminded of the saying. “Joota sone ka ho ya chaandi ka-pehna toh jaata hai paon mein” Crazy! (sic)”

As per his tweet, the Air Jordan’s were priced at Rs 18,60,907, Rs 13,78,450, Rs 17,23,062, Rs 27,56,900. The tweet went viral soon and received thousands of comments. One Twitter user wrote, “Sir, I am reminded of a dialogue from your film Hum Kisise Kum Nahin wherein you say “ Kajal Yeh heerein agar tumhari zindagi kharid sakte hain to anmol hai…varna pathar ke tukde hai”. The same holds true now. IF YOU LIKE THEM THEY ARE PRICELESS OR ELSE THEY ARE SNEAKERS” while another commented, “Ranbir wears most expensive shoes. ….I think he never told u, his sneakers prices. Looking like u realized now.  His fans knows before u.”
