‘Mulk‘ is an upcoming theatrical patriotic-drama movie directed by Anubhav Sinha. It stars Rishi Kapoor, Tapsee Pannu, Ashutosh Rana and Prateik Babbar in pivotal roles. The movie traces the journey of a Muslim family to reclaim its lost honor when one of its members is evidently a terrorist. In other news, former cricketer Imran Khan has won the Pakistan elections and will most probably become Pak’s next Prime Minister. Now, most of you must be wondering how these two pieces of information relate to each other.
Well, ideally there isn’t a lot common between the two. But in a recent tweet, actor Rishi Kapoor has made an outlandish connection between Imran’s victory and his upcoming movie. What happened was, Rishi Kapoor, tweeted to congratulate Imran Khan on his win. But in the process, Kapoor cunningly tried to promote his movie as well.
But Twitterati did not let Rishi Kapoor slide by unscathed. Before divulging any further, first let’s have a look at Rishi’s tweet:
Well spoken Imran Khan. I have been saying whatever you said on all channels past two days regarding India-Pakistan! I hope you succeed in making your “Mulk” have good relations with my “Mulk” pic.twitter.com/YCe741vW22

An actor who is known for his snappy tweets that sometimes border on arrogance has missed the mark this time. The Twitterati began trolling Rishi Kapoor for this ill-logical marketing stunt in the following tweets:
Indian media is super hyper:
Indian media is so hyper ,jb apky mulk ka election hota hy hamry media per news tk nahin hoti likin ager taimoor smile kry woh news zaror ati hy 😎😊

This is way too much, he’s using Pak’s election results to promote his movie:
इसमे भी फ़िल्म की प्रोमोशन कर लिया आपने,इतनी क्या।।।
हद है यार!
“देश” से बड़ा आपलोगो के लिए “फिल्मी मुल्क” है ना सर

To hell with his movie promotions:
To hell with your movie promotion!

What he says is irrelevant, what remains true is that Pak is the mothership of terrorism:
