Sonam Kapoor has graced the latest issue of Cosmopolitan India. The actor stunned in a plaid look for two covers and was at her honest best during the interaction. In the interview with the magazine, Sonam spoke at length about the vilification of women and their 'witch hunt' which are scaring her a lot. The Neerja actor further shared that she was traumatised to see what her colleagues have been going through and revealed how women are 'soft targets'.

Sonam told Cosmopolitan, "I wasn’t in the line of fire but it has been traumatising to see what my colleagues have been through, and the witch-hunt that has taken place. I feel scared...women are such soft targets. Nobody has ever spoken about a man in the way women are being spoken about right now It’s almost like we have gone back several decades... where, if you are a woman in the film or fashion industry, you are not thought of as an artist or a creative person. Instead, your moral character is questioned."

She further said, "We are artists. What is the difference between us and a male actor or director? They are made into ‘heroes’ and women are made into conniving witches! It makes me nauseous and sick. And it’s even stranger that some women are pushing this narrative forward... There is a lot of unlearning that needs to happen."

Sonam had slammed people on social media for the constant trolling post the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. She along with her family also limited their comment sections on Twitter and Instagram.
