Actress Sonam Kapoor requested her fans and followers on Twitter to stop making celebrities the target of online trolls.

In a series of Tweets, the 31-year-old star urged them not to get personal towards film stars and other people from the industry.

Sonam, who got a special mention at this year’s National Film Awards ceremony for her performance in “Neerja”, has often been trolled by the Twitterati.

She recently wrote an article for a newspaper’s campaign, ‘Let’s Talk About Trolls’, an awareness drive on online abuse and bullying, but the actress got trolled even for that.

A quote from Sonam’s piece was shared online,

"I love my country but for some of you and you’re the bigots, not me I become ‘anti-national’ only because I ask questions or choose to be critical. Listen to the national anthem… recall the line you heard as kids, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Issai…"

And Twiteratti had a field day taking potshots at the actor.
