Have faced racism, says Sonar Kapoor


Sonam Kapoor has represented India on many international platforms, but the actress says she has been a victim of racism.

The 30-year-old actress, who was addressing a session on the first day of Agenda Aaj Tak 2015, opened up about her take on intolerance, an issue that has been making headlines for sometime.

“Intolerance is a very broad term. I have faced racism in many countries. They see brown skin and they judge you already. When I go abroad people already have their perception, like we are always in parda (veil) or our parents are very conservative.

“Even we are judgemental, we see white skin and think the girl is loose. Judging is in human nature. It is on us to educate people,” Sonam said.

The “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” actress feels intolerance have always been in our country.

“The dialogue on intolerance is great. I feel when there is a discussion and a country is ready for the dialogue its good. But at the same time I feel intolerance has always been there. We have seen all kinds of riots in the past 60 years.
