Sonam Kapoor On Getting SLAMMED For Her ‘Second-Class Citizens’ Comment, ‘They Are Blind-Ignorant, Akin To Nazis’
It looks like Sonam Kapoor is on a mission these days. The Veere Di Wedding actress is out and out hitting back at trolls that are questioning her career, political stance, and other personal opinions. Not very long ago, she expressed her displeasure on Mr. India 2 being without her father Anil Kapoor’s knowledge, as he starred in the original. Now, Sonam is in the news for her recent comments on women empowerment in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia edition.

She was quoted as saying, “For me, female empowerment is very important, especially because I’m from a side of the world where women have always been second-class citizens." This, however, didn’t go down very well with the netizens and they found yet another reason to troll the actress, especially on the second-class citizens' bit. All the replies under Sonam’s tweet were mostly about her getting slammed. Now, Sonam Kapoor has responded to all the criticism through a blunt tweet.

She called it ‘blatant sexism, classism and racism’ and that trollers are blind and ignorant, equal to that of Nazis. “Now that the blatant sexism, classism and racism has started it won’t. They are blind and ignorant. Akin to Nazis,” read Sonam’s response.

On the work front, Sonam Kapoor will be next seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s next film titled Blind. A source close to the actress told us, “Sonam had always been an admirer of Ghosh's body of work and it was very fitting for Blind to have come along as the opportunity for them to collaborate. After having powered socially relevant cinema, she has picked the Ghosh production for its unique narrative. The Sonam Kapoor-starrer will be on floors in mid-June in London. However, no details of her role are out as yet." (ALSO READ - Sonam Kapoor Shows Us How To Transform Any Outfit With Statement Jackets)
