Bollywood industry has largely been influenced by people who haven’t heir link-ups in the industry. The so-called star kids of already established ones are already in the headlines for all the reasons and are allowed to stay there despite their success or failure.
On the contrary, talented ones are struggling to set their feet. Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor was on the receiving end of trolls and abuses after she denied knowing who Sushant Singh Rajput even was on the sets of ‘Koffee With Karan’.
This led to several users trolling the nepotism barbie and some even criticised her for being Anil Kapoor’s daughter, an identity without which she would not have made it big in film industry. In reply, Sonam Kapoor called the old Koffee with Karan episode ‘edited’; and added: ‘My fellow actors have said much worse about me’
Since Sonam Kapoor is a star kid and is a nepotism material in the Bollywood industry, it was too easy for her to get good opportunities in movies without any difficulties considering the fact that she has close connections in Bollywood.
However, she never accepted that she got chance so easily in Bollywood for being a star kid. She was on the receiving end of trolls and abuses on social media. Recently, in an interview, she opened up about how last three or four months have been really tough for her. She revealed: “I had some stressful times in the last three or four months, mentally.
There is a lot of stuff that happens on social media, there is a lot of hate and talk of a lot of things. It put me in a very low and negative space. But now I am much better.”
Sonam Kapoor switched off the comments section on social media to stay away from all the negativity. Talking about the same, Sonam said: “Yes I’ve switched off my comment section and my parents’ comment section because I don’t want my 64 year old parents to go through this. They did nothing to deserve this. And I’m not doing it out of fear you morons I’m doing it out of common sense to preserve my mental health and my parents.”
Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam boldly showed middle finger to the press
Sonam flashed her middle finger during the promotion of her film, ‘Players’ and said, “I don’t believe in censorship so whether they like it or not, I really don’t care about it. I just want people to come and see my film. Showing a middle finger is a part of today’s youth.”
