In a recent interview Sonam Kapoor gave her opinion on the current situation and tensions of the Kashmir valley after Article 370 was revoked.
The 34 year old actress was instantly slammed for sharing her opinion and as the actress believes her words were misinterpreted. During the interview with BBC Asian Network Sonam said, it’s heartbreaking to see where the situation has landed right now and I’m very patriotic. So I think for me it’s better to keep quiet and let this pass because even this shall pass.
Sonam further said, I think our countries were one 70 years ago and that there is so much divisive politics at play is heartbreaking.
I hope there is a peaceful way of working things out. I don’t know how that’s possible, but I think there should be (peace) because it’s a beautiful place that I think has been under so much pressure, the actress concluded.
The Kashmir situation on the Indian-administered side continues to divide people, including in Bollywood.

Sonam was trolled in no seconds and trolls were targeting her Sindhi-Peshwari ancestors. The actress gave it back to the trolls asked them to go get a life!
The National Award Winning actress took to her twitter handle to shut the trolls. She wrote, Guys, please calm down and get a life. Twisting, misinterpreting and understanding what you want from what someone has to say isn’t a reflection on the person who says it but about you. So self reflect and see who you are and hopefully get a job.
