The media was in for a shock when they had allegedly shoved, pushed and surprisingly, even slapped during the Kapoor family’s Ganesh visarjan in Chembur, Mumbai, on Thursday. Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor have lost their cool and have misbehaved with media persons and even slapped some.
The ganpati visarjan started around 1.30 pm and Rishi, Randhir and Ranbir Kapoor were seen walking for almost four kms in order to immerse the idol. An eyewitness says that the long walk caused absolute mayhem among the people thronging and climbing over the barricades to catch a glimpse of the stars.

It was a shot that the media personnel tried to capture and Rishi Kapoor had reportedly got angry. It is reported that he turned around and allegedly slapped a cameraman. It is also alleged that Rishi slapped a reporter as well.
In a few video clippings, Rishi and Randhir are seen pushing and shoving people. As can be seen from one of the clips, Randhir had lost his cool when a reporter approached him for a byte.
In yet another instance, a senior journalist of a Hindi news channel was pushed away from the car of the actors. It’s not quite clear who pushed the scribe away – the actors or their bodyguards.
