Actor Rajkummar Rao has defended Sonam Kapoor against online criticism for a video interview they did together. The interview featured Kapoor discussing the struggles of being a star kid in the film industry. Rao, who has worked with Kapoor in the film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, described her as a genuine and kind-hearted person who is always there for everyone.
The viral clip had been edited in a way that showed Rao’s reactions to other things, and he claimed that he did not dwell on it. According to him, Kapoor was putting across her point of view, and he was doing the same. Rao also revealed that he recently visited Kapoor’s home to meet her son Vayu, and their friendship remains unchanged.
Kapoor comes from a prominent film family in India, and her remarks about the challenges and privileges of being a star kid drew mixed reactions online. Some social media users accused her of being out of touch with the struggles faced by actors who come from non-film backgrounds. Others defended her and pointed out that she was simply sharing her personal experiences.
Rao’s comments highlight the importance of understanding different perspectives and not jumping to conclusions based on edited video clips or social media posts. It is easy to form opinions based on incomplete information, but a deeper understanding of a person’s character and motivations is necessary to make fair judgments.
