When Sonam Kapoor was asked to comment on the situation during the promotion of her latest venture Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, 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 judgement and be very responsible before we say anything more on this subject. Because we don’t need to derail this movement."

She also went ahead and stated that her film is as important as the #MeToo movement and this isn't the right platform to discuss the issue.

This left many baffled since Sonam was one of the first people to come out in support of Tanushree Dutta who was the first one to bring this movement to our country.

But when it came to Rajkumar Hirani, her opinion was,

“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.”

Sonam received a lot of backlash from the public for her comments and people expressed their opinion on Twitter.

Hypocrisy at its best?
