"My defence of her has nothing to do with her comments on Pakistan"- Sonam Kapoor clarifies her stance on Swara Bhasker being trolled

At a special screening of Veere Di Wedding in New Delhi, Sonam Kapoor was asked about the constant trolling against her friend and co-star Swara Bhasker especially the masturbation scene from the film. The news agency ANI quoted Sonam, “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.”

As Sonam Kapoor defended Swara Bhasker for Veere Di Wedding, Pakistani news portals reported that she was defending her friend over Swara’s comments on Pakistan. Apparently, Swara Bhasker had called Pakistan a non-secular state after Veere Di Wedding got banned in Pakistan. Post that, Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane had slammed her for her hypocrisy. Talking about trolls and her comments, Sonam Kapoor clarified that he stance had nothing to do with Pakistan. “My defence of her has nothing to do with her comments on Pakistan! Get your fact right and stop trying to spread mischief and hate! #aproudworldcitizen #feminist #liberal”, Sonam tweeted.


Recently, Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane called out Swara Bhasker for contradictory comments on Pakistan after Veere Di Wedding was banned in the country. Urwa shared two clips from her 2015 interview when she had visited the country and had said that every city fails in front of Lahore. Cut to her recent interview, she criticized Pakistan and called it a failing state. Urwa even said that her statements reflected that she was an ignorant person.
