Rishi Kapoor has returned to India after battling a serious illness. He is also known for his brilliant acting as well as for his outspoken statements. He has recently given his opinion on the treatment of artists.

Rishi Kapoor said in a conversation with IANS, 'I am very upset with the way the government of our country treats the artists of the country. India is a country which is recognized around the world for its music, culture and cinema, but the artists of our country are treated with a low standard. Most of the new roads, flyovers and airports built in the country are named after India's politicians. After all, why are these public places not named after artists? '

He said, 'In our country there are great artists like Pandit Ravi Shankar, Ustad Alla Rakha Khan, Lata Mangeshkar ji. There have been artists like Raj Kapoor, Prithviraj Kapoor, I am not saying this because I belong to the family of Raj Kapoor but can the contribution of these stars in cinema be forgotten? The contribution of these people is celebrated all over the world but this is not the case in our own country. But why?'

He said that 'America has many artists like Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson who have many public places named after them and the Young Generation of America knows about these stars but in our country all things are named after politicians. Are. There are also women like Astronaut Kalpana Chawla in our country who have brought laurels to the name of India around the world and they are an inspiration to many but the politicians of the country keep the public place under their agenda only after the leaders.
