#9pm9minute: Sonam Kapoor Blasts Those Who Burst Firecrackers, Calls Them 'Morons' And Says 'Do People Think It’s Diwali?'
The entire nation took part in the activity given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi - to light up diyas/torches/flashlights and more at 9 pm for 9 minutes on April 5. This was to show that India is united to fight against Coronavirus. However, some people took it to a different level and started bursting firecrackers. Sonam Kapoor, who is in Delhi with her in-laws, took to social media to slam all these people and called them morons. She mentioned in her tweets that poor animals like street dogs are scared because of the same.

In the series of tweets, Sonam wrote, "People are bursting crackers. Just FYI . They dogs are freaking out. Do people think it’s Diwali? I’m so confused." In her next tweet, she wrote, "There was complete peace and quite, and now the birds, dogs and sirens are freaking out in south Delhi because some morons decided to burst fire crackers tonight." Bursting firecrackers was definitely not a part of the activity suggested by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

While Sonam did not post her picture or video participating in #9pm9minute task, her father Anil Kapoor sure became a part of it with much enthusiasm. Senior Kapoor posted video and pictures of the diyas he lit up at his residence in Mumbai.




Apart from Anil Kapoor, other celebrities who became a part of this activity are Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and many others.
