While the police didn't reveal the details of the tweet which got him arrested, reports claimed that he landed in trouble for his tweets about Irrfan and Rishi Kapoor. In a now-deleted tweet, KRK had reportedly written, "Just on a serious note, I said few days ago that #Corona can’t go back without taking few famous people. I didn’t write names that time because ppl could have abused me. But I knew that Irfan and Rishi will go. And I know, who is the next one also."
Not just this, KRK, recently, had made derogatory tweets against Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan.
