WEB DESK: B -Town beauty , Sonam Kapoor, who was in Delhi to promote her family drama Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, expressed her opinions freely without worrying about people’s reactions, Times of India reported.
The Bollywood diva spoke out in support of her Khoobsurat co-star Fawad Khan following Hindu extremist organisation Shiv Sena’s pledge to not let Fawad and Mahira promote their films in Maharashtra.
“I have worked with Fawad Khan and I would love to work with him again. Fawad is like family to me, so whether he is Indian or Pakistani it does not matter,” she said.
“Some of my best friends are from Pakistan,” she added.
The actress added that we appreciate it when Bollywood actors work abroad. She mentioned fellow actress, Priyanka and her father, Anil Kapoor in this regard who are both currently working in Los Angeles.
The PRDP actress asked, “If it is okay for us to go all over the world and work, why can’t people from the neighboring country come here and work?”
She said, “This was something that the British did – divide and rule – and I think that’s what’s happening right now. It is scary, awful and I think it is completely unacceptable. Intolerance based on anything, whether religion, caste, creed or sexuality, is unacceptable.”
“A country like India is known for tolerance. We are dumping in the garbage what our forefathers fought for. For an artiste, it’s the scariest situation to be in. You can only grow through art, expression and love. And if there are so many stigmas, we will never grow as a country,” Sonam added.
