Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor shares anti-cracker message, reacts as people share photo of Anil Kapoor bursting crackers
Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor, in a tweet shared on Diwali, said that blasting crackers goes against common sense. He replied to individuals who posted images of his dad Anil Kapoor lighting up firecrackers in response.
“People still bursting firecrackers all over the place.. my pets are scared, it’s uncomfortable for everyone at home and really bad for the environment in more ways than one.. I’ve never been a prisoner to cultural presets for these reasons.. common sense has to prevail sometimes,” he wrote.
Certain individuals replied to the tweet by posting an image of Anil bursting crackers, as Harsh Varrdhan and his sister Sonam Kapoor looked on. In light of one such post, he said, ” Was years ago.. but as we progress we learn more and try and better our ways .. at least some of us.”
“2016 Diwali: Is that you bro on the left of Sonam? Didn’t stop your dad from bursting firecrackers? Or your common sense has prevailed recently only?” one Twitter user asked. Harsh Varrdhan replied, “Recently bro… open to change… are you? Yeah didn’t think so.” He wrote in a follow-up tweet, “Yeah bro me only… great eyesight you have … 2016… 5 years ago… so time to change … by the way are you a dermatologist?”
Recently, Harsh Varrdhan’s sister Rhea Kapoor urged people to refrain from using firecrackers during their Diwali celebrations. “Bursting crackers is not only dated but grossly ignorant, inconsiderate and irresponsible. Stop doing it, it’s so 19-never,” she wrote on Instagram Stories.
