“Maybe see what the question was! It was to her scene in the film and why her character was trolled!” she said.
A day earlier Sonam was asked about the trolls Swara Bhaskar encountered on social media for her character in a recently released movie, ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja said, “I think people just like to troll her because she has an opinion and a point of view and I guess that shows how much they love her because the other side of hate is always love. So Swara, you have a lot of lovers.”
Her statement coincided with the latest controversial remarks of Swara Bhaskar on Pakistan. Swara Bhaskar was slammed on social media when she called Pakistan a ‘failing state’ in response to the ban promulgated in the country on the screening of Veere Di Wedding, subjecting to its controversial content.
Hence, people confused Sonam Kapoor’s statement as support to Swara Bhaskar’s controversial remarks.
Swara said “They’re a non-secular state. I’m not surprised at all. Why should we hold up Pakistan, which is a failing state — I don’t understand why we keep taking pleasure and feeling a sense of self-worth from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan. Apologies to all my Pakistani friends right now… Rest assured, Pakistanis have way worse vocabulary than we do. I know.”
