Soon after abrogating Article 370, the political debate reached its peak and spared no one. Cricketers, bollywood celebrities and businessmen all gave their opinion on the issue and some invited controversy too. Among all, one who invited maximum criticism for her remark on Article 370 abolishment was none other than Sonam Kapoor.
Sonam Kapoor said that “It’s heartbreaking to see where the situation has landed right now” she further added, “hopes there is a peaceful way of working things out”. Sonam also asked social media users to get a job, thereby inviting more trolling as she’s been jobless lately.
Social media users brought out her old statement where she claimed to recite ‘Hindu Muslim Sikh Isai’ while singing the national anthem ‘Jan Gan Man’. Failed to defend Sonam, her 51 Bollywood colleagues filed a petition in Supreme Court to add ‘Hindu Muslim Sikh Isai’ in the national anthem. Few among the 51 celebrities include Javed Akhtar, Sabana Azmi and Swara Bhasker.
Reportedly, Javed Akhtar has proposed an entirely new national anthem, which he wished to write and Pritam to compose the music. SC is likely to hear the petition on the first week of September.
