While Bollywood stars are mainly under fire over their biased stance regarding the unrest in Indian-occupied Kashmir, Sonam Kapoor played it safe and hoped for the turmoil to subside while also terming herself, much like Priyanka Chopra, ‘patriotic.’

The 34-year-old star during an interview with BBC Asian Network went into discourse over the surging issue of occupied Kashmir that has grasped the attention of the world and hoped for peace to prevail in the battered and troubled region that is presently under lock-down by the Indian government.

“It’s heartbreaking to see where the situation has landed right now and I’m very patriotic. So I think for me now it’s better to keep quiet and let this pass because even this too shall pass,” she said.

Speaking about the growing hostility between neighbours India and Pakistan, Sonam expressed her sorrow saying: “I think our countries were one country like 70 years ago and the fact that there is so much divisive politics at play is really heart-breaking.”
