Sonam Kapoor responds with ‘Hinduism’ when asked if she loved Muslims


Sonam Kapoor is not new to controversial elements. The actress has been quite vocal on several issues, especially on social media. Be it her name change post marriage or the recent use of Instagram’s question feature, Sonam is hard to predict.

The question asked by a random follower on Instagram was, “Do you love Muslims?” To which, the Veere Di Wedding star answered, “I love people of all faiths and beliefs. That’s what Hinduism preaches!”

Another question was asked to the actress, “Do you love your Pakistani follower?” Sonam answered, “Love Pakistan and I’m dying to come there and hang out. “

There was also a question on Sonam being an LGBTQ icon. “You are such a strong, powerful LGBTQ icon. Where do you find the courage and strength?”

“Telling the truth and standing by it doesn’t require strength just conviction (sic),” answered Sonam.

Kapoor, who just returned from her month-long honeymoon with husband Anand Ahuja, was last seen on the big screen in the Dutt biopic, Sanju as his love interest.

On the work front, Sonam will be next seen in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which also stars her father Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, and Rajkummar Rao.
