I'm my father’s daughter and yes I'm privileged, Sonam Kapoor


After Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, the debate on the culture of nepotism and privilege of coming from a filmy background caught fire. Sonam Kapoor was highly trolled for getting all the privilege of being a star child and reacting to the trolls, she has disabled the comments section from her and her father's Instagram pages to avoid the bombardment of hate flowing towards them.

"This is some of 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.

"I encourage you guys to see my comment section. And I'm sure you don't hope that the same comes your way. I hope your parents don't have to see this sort of stuff," she wrote on Twitter.

The ‘Neerja’ actor said the remarks she made public aren't even the "worst of it".

The actor and her team are reporting these unpleasant comments to the authorities, she added.

After Sushant’s suicide on Jaune 14, the discussions around the struggle of survival in Bollywood, navigating cliques, particularly for outsiders ignited.

Sonam Kapoor said that she is proud to be the daughter of a movie star who has worked hard to sustain in the industry.

"Today on Father's Day I'd like to say one more thing, yes I'm my fathers daughter and yes I am here because of him and yes I'm privileged.

"That's not an insult, my father has worked very hard to give me all of this. And it is my karma where I'm born and to whom I'm born. I'm proud. To be his daughter," she wrote.

The 35-year-old actor said she has disabled the comments section from her and her father's Instagram pages to avoid the barrage of hate.

"I don't want my 64 year old parents to go through this. They did nothing to deserve this. And I'm not doing it out of fear you morons, I'm doing it out of common sense to preserve my mental health and my parents," she said.
