We are where we are because of our karma: Sonam Kapoor

Sonam hit back at social media hate in the wake of Sushant Singh's suicide, also shared private hate comments


Entertainment Desk June 22, 2020

After Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely and supremely tragic demise on June 14, many ‘star kids’ in Bollywood have gotten heat from netizens against nepotism. However, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, daughter of Bollywood biggie Anil Kapoor, is finally addressing the hate coming her way.

Sonam was also made a target after she tweeted in connection to Sushant’s death, saying, “Blaming a girlfriend, ex-girlfriend, family, colleagues for someone’s death is ignorant and mean spirited.” Her tweet was, of course, met with extreme criticism and things took an ugly turn when people started leaving hate comments on celebs’ accounts.

The Neerja actor finally took to Twitter to air her thoughts out and even shared some of the hate messages that she and her family have gotten post the tragedy. “Bullying, misguided vengeance, and the need to further your own agenda not caring about the collateral damage. This is all your karma. May god and the universe forgive you,” she wrote.

She posted a picture along with it that read, “Karma is the biggest leveller. We are where we are because of our karmas…”

She then went on to attack pictures of people direct messaging her on Instagram filled with abuses. Some of the comments mentioned graphic death wishes upon the actor and her family, including one that said, “Wish you had died instead of him,” and another that wished death upon her unborn child.

“There are some of the comments coming my way. All the media and all the people who’ve encouraged this sort of behaviour and instigated it. This is on you. People talking about how one should have been kind to someone are doing worse to others,” wrote Sonam.

She even tried to clear the air about a snippet from Koffee with Karan going around where she seems confused about who Sushant was.

“That video you've been spouting was 7 years old. When he had one film out and I didn't know him, just like he didn't say anything about me till now. Also please go and watch the episodes where my fellow actors have maybe said much worse about me, but I have taken it in the spirit the show was meant to be. In jest."

Sonam has since disable comments on her Instagram account.
