Sonam Kapoor is being trolled online for speaking on Kashmir and Article 370, and saying that her family has strong links to Pakistan.
Twitter trolls are attacking Sonam Kapoor after an interview with BBC Asian Network, posted on twitter on 15th of august. Sonam Kapoor too expressed her views on the Kashmir situation and India’s relationship with Pakistan. The actress added that she was not aware of the entire situation and also shed light on her roots and revealed that she is half Sindhi and half Peshawari. She claimed, “It’s heartbreaking to see part of my culture is something that I can’t explore as well because of that (referring to relations between India and Pakistan).”
After that she found herself receiving an end of ruthless social media trolling for her comments on Kashmir, then she tweeted. “Guys, please calm down and get a life,” Sonam began by writing and then added: “Twisting, misinterpreting and understanding what you want from what someone has to say isn’t a reflection on the person who says it but on you. So self reflect and see who you are and hopefully get a job.”
Sonam Kapoor also revealed her parents Anil and Sunita Kapoor decided to name her ‘Sonam’ when they were in Kashmir many years ago: “I was named when my parents went to Kashmir and they were there for a while. My dad was shooting for Ram Lakhan and they decided to name me from there. I haven’t been there, since.”
However, in another tweet, Sonam Kapoor clarified the story behind her name with a news report that says Sonam stands for good luck and that her parents zeroed in on the name as they considered her to be a lucky charm to the family. “This is true.. at last,”
