The picture was accompanied with a sweet caption for Rhea. Take a look at Sonam Kapoor’s Instagram post wishing Rhea Kapoor on her birthday below:
The post very well shows how much Sonam Kapoor loves her younger sister Rhea, however for some reason it did not go well with many Instagram users. There were some social media users who shamed the ‘Neerja’ actress badly for coming up with the post. According to these users, since Sridevi had passed away only a few days ago, it was inappropriate for Sonam and Rhea to celebrate Rhea’s birthday.
The unfortunate night of February 24 brought with the untimely and sudden demise of a legendary actress of Bollywood – Sridevi. Not only the film industry, but millions of others across the country were taken aback by the news of Bollywood’s Chandni’s death. The entire Kapoor family, film fraternity and thousands of fans present at Sridevi’s funeral could be seen mourning over the grievous loss.
And as Sonam Kapoor, going by the saying, “The show must go on”, took to social media to wish her sister on her birthday, she left many social media users furious over her gesture. These people thought that since Sridevi, who apart from being an illustrious actress, was also a senior member of the Kapoor family, Sonam should have refrained from posting her picture with Rhea and wishing her happy birthday on social media.
Some social media users opined that Sonam should have thought about her cousin sisters and Sridevi’s daughters Jhanvi and Khushi before celebrating with Rhea. Some of these trollers even went to the extreme of calling her fake and shameless. Take a look at comments by these people below:
Did they just call her fake?
Is that even a point?
Does mourning means not wishing your sister?
But that is also a point!
