Fairness row: Sonam Kapoor hits back at Abhay Deol, deletes posts


In his Facebook post, Abhay Deol yesterday targeted Bollywood stars for endorsing fairness creams. He targeted Shahrukh Khan, John Abraham, Shahid Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and Vidya Balan for endorsing fairness product which directly or indirectly influences racism and the culture of fair skin.

Abhay mocked stars for making fake promises. The actor’s Facebook post received an overwhelming response and in no time he received huge views. Apart from Sonam Kapoor others stars targeted by Abhay kept silence and did not react to Abhay’s tweet.

Sonam responded back and took pot-shot at Abhay by posting a picture of Esha Deol endorsing fairness cream. Sonam tweeted, "@AbhayDeol I appreciate and concur with your views and would like to know your thoughts on this as well!"

Well, Abhay did not keep silent and responded to it saying -Is wrong too. For my views read my post.https://twitter.com/sonamakapoor/status/852198904032620544 …

Sonam tweeted back calmly, "Thank you Abhay, I shot this campaign ten years ago and didn’t understand the ramifications. Thank you for bringing this to the forefront." But Abhay was still being snarky and sarcastic. He wrote -

Abhay further wrote#More power to you @sonamakapoor maybe you can use your power as well to take this further than the forefront.

However, due to some unknown reasons Sonam Kapoor deleted her posts.

Sonam Kapoor and abhay Deol worked together in ‘Aisha’ and 'Ranjhanaa'.
