Making light of reports that a public toilet in Allahabad has been named after him, actor Rishi Kapoor said he is thrilled to read about it as at least he will of some use to someone.

The 63-year-old actor has courted controversy and faced wrath of Congress party after he attacked the practice of naming all the major assets of the country after the Gandhi family members during the Congress rule.

The “Kapoor & Sons” star had also said people from the film industry should also have buildings named after them.

Following the controversy, Congress workers in Allahabad recently named a public toilet in the city after the Bollywood actor.

Asked about it, Rishi joked, “I am thrilled. At least, I will be of some use to someone. These people (Congress loyalists) are of no use to anyone. I take pride in the fact that the Sulabh Shauchalaya is named after me because it is the Prime Minister’s pet project right now.”

However, he said he is not against the Nehru-Gandhi family but has a problem with people exploiting their family name.

“On a serious note, it really doesn’t matter to me what they do. They seem to have not understood what I implied by my tweets. I have nothing against the Nehru or Gandhi family. I am against the people exploiting their family name,” he was quoted as saying.

“What I am saying is of national importance; people should realise the folly of naming everything after two families. This is just an observation by a citizen of the country and I have every right to voice my opinion. I know I have ruffled a few Congress feathers but they have misunderstood my intentions.
