Ranbir Kapoor: I am a hypocrite, while my dad is honest
While his co-star Katrina Kaif is active on social media, but Ranbir Kapoor has always been reserved when it comes to talking about social issues in public or being active on social media. Whereas his father Rishi Kapoor is totally opposite of him, he has always been very vocal about his thoughts on social media. Ranbir chooses to stay away from social media.
However, Ranbir has never requested his father to control his social media outrage but rather wife Neetu Kapoor takes charge of that.

When asked Ranbir Kapoor, if he tells his dad Rishi Kapoor to tone down on social media, he said, “My mother takes care of his aggression on social media. There are constant fights and conflicts at home because of it. My father is a very honest and considers himself a citizen of this country. If he has an opinion about anything he will say it, he is not a hypocrite. Like you feel for an issue so does he. He says it because he feels the need to say it. I am a hypocrite I don’t think I can do that.”
Talking further about his dislike of social media, the actor adds, “Social media is addictive and takes up a lot of your time. If I come on social media I wouldn’t know what to show, which pics to post and I would be confused what to show and what not. I don’t think there is a need to keep track of others social media account. I just have one social media account of photo sharing which is just to follow people I admire, but if I start posting then it becomes a media conference of my life. It is too much of a responsibility and I am happy to lead a simple life.”
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was in news for rudely dismissing the media when asked to comment on issues of national importance.
There are times when actors are asked to comment on certain questions and they refrain from talking about current affairs.
Ranbir feels it is not right to force a public personality to comment on if they don’t want to. “I think just because I am an actor it doesn’t mean I am answerable. If I have a view I should give you a view. If I don’t have the knowledge about it then saying something controversial just for the sake of it doesn’t make sense. Just because I am on a platform where you are allowed to ask me questions that doesn’t mean that I am obliged to answer. It is my life I will express something if I believe in it and not express if I don’t know about it,” he opined.
Well thought Ranbir Kapoor!
