Many on social media, however, don’t like the idea. Instead of agreeing with him, most users trolled the actor for his views. One user asked: “How will emergency solve an issue, lockdown won’t?” Another user commented: “Sir it’s not so easy…we have no plan for poors on how they will survive.” A user trolled: “Thank you, Can people of Mumbai build a 70 M high wall around his house to make Rishi Kapoor happy and get a feel of emergency.” Also Read - Maharashtra Coronavirus News: With Over 4000 Deaths And 85000 Cases, Now Mumbai Overtakes China

Despite the actor warning netizens not to make fun of his lifestyle recently, users again commented about his alleged alcohol consumption. One user commented: “Alcohol does result in perception troubles. Sober up, Mr. Kapoor. Another user shared: “Alcohol and alcohol withdrawal both cause trouble. Pick one.” Another user suggested: “Don’t take him seriously on his after 9 pm tweets.”
Recently, after a section of netizens jocularly enquired about his stock of alcohol for the lockdown period, Rishi Kapoor had furiously tweeted: “Anyone cracking jokes about my country or on my lifestyle, will be deleted. Be aware and warned. This is a serious matter. Help us to tide over the situation.”
However, it seems the trolls are not in the mood to give up.
