Celebrities everywhere often get targeted by online trolls. While some spread hate, others cannot seem to control the outpouring love.
Usually, these artists try to ignore hateful comments but some either post a heart-hitting reply or deal with issues in a humble manner.
Bollywood beauty Sonam Kapoor Ahuja found herself in such a situation recently. In a new feature rolled out by Instagram that allows users to be virtually-interviewed by their followers, Sonam received a ton of queries. One of the questions that she was asked read, “Do you love Muslims?” Lovingly, Sonam replied, “I love people of all faiths and beliefs. That’s what Hinduism preaches.”
The Veere Di Wedding actor was also asked if she loves her Pakistani followers, to which she said, “I love Pakistan. I’m dying to come there and hang out.” Looks like we have a fan!
Apart from questions pertaining to religion and nationalism, Sonam was also lauded for her stance on supporting equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community. One fan asked, “You’re such a strong LGBTQ icon. Where do you find the strength and courage?” Graciously addressing the well-thought query, Sonam replied, “Telling the truth and standing by it doesn’t require strength – just conviction.” *slow clap*
We love how despite all the hate that comes her way, Sonam always stands her ground and proves her point with the utmost amount of grace.
