However, her statement on women being a second-class citizen did not go well with the netizens and they started trolling her. Not only this, but they even blamed Anil Kapoor for raising his daughter as the ‘second-class citizen’. One user wrote, “U were born in kapoor family..Studied abroad..after being so fat U get full support & U worked in UR first movie Sanwariya.. etc. etc. etc. If U will say this kind of opportunities/treatment.. U get bcoz U R “second class citizen..” Than the thing can be done is.”
Another tweeted, “Sounds more like your personal experience. Did you treat your daughter as second class citizen @AnilKapoor?”
The Zoya Factor actor did not keep quiet about the trolling and gave it back to the trolls. She wrote, “I didn’t know the Hindu extremists way of celebrating women was trolling them. Hilarious. Face with tears of joy it makes our Indian leaders look really bad.” (sic)
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sonam was last seen in Abhishek Sharma’s rom-com, The Zoya Factor, which also starred Dulquer Salmaan. From Sonam’s glamorous chic avatars to Dulquer’s tough looks and six-pack abs, the fans were served the sweet fruit of their anticipation ever since the trailer was dropped. The film was based on novelist Anuja Chauhan’s book of the same name and was bankrolled by Fox Star Studios.
