Mr Kapoor, now 63, tweeted a still of himself from 1983 film Coolie in which he played a journalist. Coolie is, of course, the film while making which lead actor Amitabh Bachchan almost died but for Rishi Kapoor, it holds other memories. In the image tweeted, Mr Kapoor, who would have been about 30 then, has a drink in his hand with a cigarette dangling from his lips.
Practising drinking since Coolie days. Waise-Smoking and Drinking is hazardous. People Please abstain from it. Tx! pic.twitter.com/Tk4VNRku4L? Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 5, 2016
Despite the disclaimer, it might be best if Rishi Kapoor's wife Neetuji didn't set eyes on his tweet. Because this:

The picture above, tweeted by Rishi Kapoor on Monday, was taken at a party to celebrate the success of his latest film Kapoor And Sons.
By Mr Kapoor's own account from last year, Mrs Kapoor doesn't approve and never has:
Had a fight with Neetu last night. She doesn't understand that I am very scientific specially in the night after 8. pic.twitter.com/1Y3IFjx9ob? Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) March 23, 2015
The other guests at the Kapoor And Sons party included Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan, Ratna Pathak Shah, producer Karan Johar and director Shakun Batra. (Also Read: Exclusive: The Lessons Fawad Khan Learnt From Rishi Kapoor)
