Sonam Kapoor is one actress who has always spoken her mind with brutal honesty and is not someone who will mince her words while voicing her opinion.


In a recent instance; amid the promotions of her next release; Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Sonam was asked about her stand on the allegations that are leveled against the ‘Sanju' director by his assistant.


Responding to the same; Sonam said," I am a huge supporter of the #MeToo movement and this is a very important question. This is not the right platform because our film is as important as the movement." 


She further clarified that people should not make haste and should reserve their judgment in the Hirani case. Elaborating on the same she said," I know Raju Hirani very well. I have known him for many years and I have huge respect for him as a filmmaker and as a man. I think we all should reserve judgment and be very responsible before we say anything more on this subject. Because we don't need to derail this movement."


The ‘Veere Di Wedding' actor said one should realize the impact such allegations and accusations can have on a person's life. Sonam went on to say," Media and all journalists don't understand how important the pen is, how important your voice is and it can make or break a person's life. So wait, do proper research and ask what is actually happening and understand what is actually happening. I promise after the film releases, I will have something to say."


Further, she said," But till things are not clear, don't make click-bait articles and play with somebody's life. It will derail the movement completely. I always want to believe a woman but suppose by chance, if it is not true, then how bad it will be for the movement, especially if it is somebody like Raju Hirani." 


The actor; who has never ace the ‘being politically correct' game also made it very clear that," This film is important and it should not become about that. If I have to sit down and talk about it, I can talk about it at length but we need to be careful about the people we accuse and people whose side we take. You have to take side and I don't believe in sitting on the fence so I will take my side when I have to."


It came as a major shocker when Hirani was accused of sexual harassment by his assistant on the set's of ‘Sanju' not once but on multiple occasions! However, in an equally surprising turn of events, the industry folks majorly spoke n favor of Hirani giving him the benefit of doubt!

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga; directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and will hit the screens on the 1st of February. The film will also see real-life father and daughter duo Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor come together on screen.
