Rishi Kapoor-Salman Khan’s bitter relationship
It is said Salman Khan and Rishi Kapoor had a bitter exchange at Sonam Kapoor‘s reception in 2018. Various media reports suggested that Salman didn’t greet Rishi at the party that upset the latter and he went on to have an argument with Salman’s sister-in-law Seema Khan who was also present at the party.
Later, in an interview while promoting Race 3, Salman talked about how he was never going to welcome Kapoor at his home and somethings will never change. The actor didn’t take the senior star’s name but said, “If that person keeps on disrespecting me or any member of my family, I refuse to give him due regard. There are one or two families from whom I have not got that respect and love. That’s where it ends. Some people from the industry will never be welcomed in my home.”
Salman is also believed to have a bitter relationship with Rishi Kapoor’s son Ranbir Kapoor who was once dating Katrina Kaif, Salman’s rumoured lady love.
Well, everything just leaves behind when death becomes the ultimate truth. Rest in peace, Rishi Kapoor!
