Sonam Kapoor Defends Favoritism in Bollywood and Says ‘I was called a Giraffe’

Sonam Kapoor, the popular actress from Bollywood recently raised her voice defending Nepotism. The 33-year old actress completely altered the meaning of the term 'nepotism'. The actress shared her notion regarding this topic on the popular Arbaaz Khan's chat show 'Pinch'.

On the chat show, Arbaaz asked Sonam Kapoor to give some reaction to a tweet that reads 'Ten years in the industry yet you don't know how to act Pathetic #nepotism.' For that tweet, Sonam briefly illustrated the meaning of nepotism.

She said, 'I have been in the industry for 11 years. Thank you for following me and knowing how long I have been there. I want to explain what nepotism really means. Everybody thinks that it's a relative of a person. Nepotism actually means to get a job through any connection. I think people have misunderstood it or are using the word for their own benefit, to put other people down.'

She even said, 'My father didn't come from an illustrious family. He has worked in the industry for 40 years and he has worked really hard only for his children and if I don't take advantage of his hard work, which he has done for us, I think that will be a little disrespectful towards his work because every man or a woman, a mother or a father works for their children.'

Till some sort of age, she said 'I was called giraffe because I was too thin'. There are some people who often move through numerous mental health issues due to the humiliation that they experience from others about their body. The actress was seen in the film 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' featuring her father Anil Kapoor. Several film lovers and critics have praised this film. Sonam will be seen in her next flick 'The Zoya Factor' starring Dulquer Salmaan.
