Actress Sonam Kapoor who is currently living in London is getting trolled for her definition of “freedom”.
Sonam Kapoor’s being on the cover of Vogue has become the Internet’s latest hot topic. The actress who appeared on the cover of Vogue India for the July month’s issue sported breathtaking in all the looks of the photoshoot for the magazine. While Anil Kapoor’s daughter shot for the India edition of the magazine, she took the photos in London, where she is currently based.
At present, she is staying in Notting Hill, Sonam and in Vogue speaks about her life in the UK and missing Bombay and her family back in India. Speaking about holding on to her roots really hard, she said, “London has made me realise that I’m very Indian. I now realise what being an immigrant actually means. Migrating to a new place is hard. I didn’t understand why Indians abroad were more Indian than Indians in India, and I realised it’s because we hold on to our roots so hard.”
Sonam said that she is enjoying her freedom in London. Explaining it further, she said, “I like the freedom here. I make my own food, clean my own space, shop for my own groceries.”
This statement didn’t go down well with netizens, who are now trolling her and calling her dumb. People think that she could have done household chores in India as well and that no one had forced her to not do it.
“She has proved it time and again that she is a dumbo, is it? Do maids and housekeeping staff enter forcefully in her house?”, wrote another.
“India has no FREEDOM. Maid’s, Cooks enters home forcefully and don’t let you do anything. #ThursdayThoughts #SonamKapoor,” wrote another.
“Starting a petition to book all the house helps and maids who forcefully enter our homes and rob us of the freedom to do our own work. #FreedomToDoHouseChores #SonamKapoor,” read another tweet.
“Sonam gave takkar to Alia in Dumbest dialogue contest”. Wrote one troll.
In the interview, Sonam also talked about how emotionally taxing the pandemic was for her and said, “Friends have lost their parents. Young people have passed away, people I know. I didn’t sleep for a month. I love living here, but India is where my heart is.”
