Sonam Kapoor addressed Kangana Ranaut’s remarks by sharing a post on Instagram saying, “Women need to stand together! irresponsible media have misquoted me or taken my quote out of context and made other women react. All I want to say is that all I have is compassion and love for you. I’m proud of where I come from and so should every other woman or man. Let’s stand together and speak up. Let’s not pull each other down with bitterness and negativity. Love is always the answer.”
Sonam Kapoor attended the ‘Vogue We the Women’ summit in Bengaluru and spoke uninhibitedly about the Me Too movement, the domino effect of Tanushree Dutta’s revelations and the allegations levelled against Vikas Bahl by a former Phantom employee. Kangana recently also accused the Queen director of sexual misconduct.
Weighing in on the same, Sonam said, “Kangana being Kangana Ranaut, she says a lot of stuff. Sometimes, it’s hard to take her seriously, but I love the fact that she has spunk and she says what she believes in.”
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Kangana lashed out at Sonam for her comment. While saying that she is known to be an articulate person who has represented her country in many international summits and referring to herself as a thought and youth influencer at said summits, she took a dig at Sonam and brought up the issue of nepotism again.
“What does she mean by saying, “it’s hard to believe Kangana”. When I am sharing my me too story, who gives her a right to judge me? So, Sonam Kapoor has the license of trusting some women and some she won’t...What makes her so unsure of my claims...I am not known because of my dad, I have earned my place and credibility after struggling for a decade,” she told Pinkvilla.
