Sonam Kapoor shared an excerpt of her interview for a magazine where she had mentioned empowerment was important to her since she came from a world where women have always been 'second-class citizens.'

Sonam Kapoor recently featured on the cover of the Harper's Bazaar magazine where she talked about her Bollywood career, her artistic choices and women empowerment. However, a part of it has not gone down well with the Twitterati where she mentioned women as 'second-class citizens.'

Tweeting about her interview, she shared a quote with one of her pictures from the photoshoot, which read, "For me, female empowerment is very important, especially because I'm from a side of the world where women have always been second-class citizens."

Twitterati was not happy with it and slammed her. Check out a few tweets below:

A user then wrote, “Not surprised seeing the replies to this tweet. When will this end!” Replying to him, Sonam wrote back, “Now that the blatant sexism, classism and racism has started it won’t. They are blind and ignorant. Akin to nazis.”

The actress shared a few other pictures with excerpts from her interview on her social morning.
