The actor, who was recently seen in Kapoor & Sons, hit out strongly at this trend, and wondered why the names of illustrious cultural ambassadors — such as Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan — or eminent industrialists like JRD Tata, were not used for more public institutions.

“Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha? (Do they consider it their father’s property?)” tweeted the 63-year-old actor, whose scathing and often self-deprecating tweets have earned him over a million Twitter followers.

This is not the first time Rishi has tweeted his thoughts about the Gandhi family. He had recently tweeted about the AgustaWestland scam. In April 2015, he tweeted on the return of Rahul Gandhi to India: “Why this fuss and hullabaloo? Someone just back after a holiday yaar give him a break. When is he to enjoy his money? In faltu days na? Samjho”

Here is a series of tweets by him:
