Sonam Kapoor Has The Perfect Response On Being Trolled Over Changing Her Surname to Ahuja
While some social media users supported Sonam's decision, others slammed the actor and questioned her standards of feminism.
Well-known author and feminist Taslima Nasreen, in a tweet, also took a sly dig at Sonam, saying "they may wear modern dresses, utter modern dialogues on screen, (but) in real life most film industry people are not modern (and) believe in patriarchy and superstitions."
After marrying Anand Ahuja,Sonam Kapoor changed her name to Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja.Will Anand Ahuja change his name to Anand Ahuja-Kapoor?They may wear modern dresses,utter modern dialogues on screen,in real life most film industry ppl r not modern.Believe in patriarchy&superstitions— taslima nasreen (@taslimanasreen) May 9, 2018
Commenting on the same, the actor said it was her personal choice and nobody put a gun to her head to do it.
"I have always said that I am a feminist. I have the choice to change my name to what I want to. Kapoor is also my father’s name. So it is a man’s name anyway. I chose to keep both. Anand has also changed his name but nobody wrote about that. I just decided to do it on social media because that’s my platform to say that I have made a choice. You should ask him (Anand). He has also changed his name and decided to add something as well," Sonam was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
The actor further said the whole idea of feminism is to have equal opportunities and the choice to do what you want to do.
"I want to be a part of Anand’s family and he is a part of my family as well. It’s a complicated discussion but this is my choice. Somebody judging me for my choice is not what feminism stands for," she added.
