Sonam Kapoor’s special appearance on BBC Asia Network where the actor spoke about abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir didn’t go down well for some netizens. The actor was mercilessly trolled for her comments to which the vocal actor lashed back with a tweet writing, “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 on you. So self reflect and see who you are and hopefully get a job.”

Following her tweet where she shut down the haters, trolls have surfaced yet again and this time dragging in dad Anil Kapoor into the picture. Digging out an old picture of Anil Kapoor with Dawood Ibrahim the Neerja actor was tagged ‘anti-national' while suggesting that she had links with Pakistan.

The actor who also spoke about Pakistan banning Bollywood films had then said, “As an artist you want to be represented everywhere and you want your work to be shown everywhere. The film in anyway did not show Pakistan in a negative light at all but the fact that they didn’t show the film in Pakistan was heartbreaking for me. I have huge Pakistani following and my two best films -- they are Muslims and half Pakistani.”
