Sonam defends her brother Harshvardhan for questioning Diljit Dosanjh’s credentials to win best debutant at Filmfare.
Harshvardhan Kapoor’s recent run-in with Diljit Dosanjh and a media group for giving him the award for the best debutant has hurt his star-sister Sonam Kapoor.
“He’s not that kind of a person. Harsh is the sweetest, gentlest, kindest soul I’ve met. And to troll him just because he made a point about the debutant award is just too unfair. He was speaking out of conviction. And according to me he was not speaking out of line,” says the protective and proud sister who feels Harsh was “awesome” in his debut film Mirzya.
“Just because it didn’t work doesn’t mean all the hard work that has gone into it is nullified,” asserts Sonam. “Even my debut film Saawariya didn’t work at the box office. But I’m very proud of it. And I’m proud of what my brother did in Mirzya."
Regarding Harsh’s objection to Diljit Dosanjh’s debut award Sonam continues, “Harsh is one of Diljit Paaji’s biggest fans. His objection was on technical, not creative grounds. Our father (Anil Kapoor) has always taught us to be appreciative of other actors’ works. We’ve grown up in an atmosphere where we have constantly heard other actors’ work being appreciated. Neither my brother nor I would ever feel resentful of the good work done by our colleagues.”
