Sonam Kapoor Becomes Defensive After Being Told She Can’t Act
Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor gave a strange reply after a troll accused her on Twitter of not being able to act despite being in Bollywood for 10 years. During an appearance on Arbaaz Khan’s new web chat show, Pinch, Sonam was shown some mean comments that people had written about her.
A tweet criticised the actor for not learning how to act despite working as an actor in Bollywood for a decade. In reply, Sonam became defensive and tried to defend nepotism in Bollywood.
“I just want to explain what nepotism really means. Everybody really think that it is a relative of a person, but it actually means to get a job through any connection. I think people have misunderstood it or people don’t understand it or use the word for their benefit to put other people down,” she said.
The actor went on to add that not taking advantage of her father and Bollywood star Anil Kapoor’s influence would be disrespectful towards him. “Another thing that I would like to that is that my father did not come from an illustrious family. He’s been in this industry for 40 years and he has worked hard only for his children. If I don’t take advantage of his hard work, which he has done for us, I think I’d be a little disrespectful to his work and to what he is trying to do for us. Because every man or woman, a mother or a father works for their children,” she added.
