Abhay Deol has always been known for his amazing roles and performances. Irritated by the idea of “whiter skin is better skin” Abhay raised the issue of racism in a series of Facebook posts and even slammed some Bollywood celebrities for endorsing them.
While celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham and others remained silent, Sonam Kapoor didn’t.
Offended by Deol’s remark, Sonam tweeted an old ad featuring Esha Deol, Abhay’s cousin. (The tweet was later deleted.)
A calm Abhay responded like a gentleman:
Is wrong too. For my views read my post. https://t.co/Jw9CNINd6tAdvertisement

Sonam understood that while she was trying to troll Abhay, she herself got trolled.
So she was quick to apologize and confessed that at the time of shooting the ad she was very young to understand the ramifications.
Abhay Deol took a great step and really has guts to raise his voice without thinking about his relations and friends.
