Sonam Kapoor had a ‘bust-up’ with the Mumbai Police recently for ‘weirdo’ video also featuring actor Dulquer Salman. She had slammed the Mumbai Police for wrongly shaming them both in public for traffic rule violations.
In one of her responses to the Mumbai Police, Sonam had written, “We weren’t driving we were rigged on a truck.. but I’m glad you guys are concerned.. I hope and I know you show the same interest in regular folk as well! Thanks for taking care!

However, Sonam calling members of public ‘regular folk’ did not go down well Twitterati as they began to give her grief. Many felt that by calling other regular, Sonam had declared herself ‘special.’ Others concluded this was a sign of Sonam suffering from a sense of entitlement.
User Spruha Joshi wrote, “Each & every citizen is equal. What exactly means regular folks? Is she not a regular citizen? Is she from Mars or something?” Another user Sushi commented, “Sonam thinks she not ‘regular’ The entitlement.” User Pranav Chaporkar tweeted, “Remember
@ShashiTharoor “cattle class” remark??” “Such a arrogant lady. Calling herself someone like president of US. @AnilKapoor if you were not her dad, for sure she would not allowed to dance behind the main actress in any song,” commented user Sachin Walukar.
The controversy started after the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Police slammed Sonam by posting a video of Dulquer seemingly using his mobile phone while sitting behind the steering wheel when the car appeared to be in motion. Dulquer appeared to drive the car without holding the steering wheel while using the mobile phone. Sonam was heard saying in the video, “Weirdo.”
Later, The Mumbai Police realised its mistake after Dulquer posted a longer version of the video, bringing the controversy to an end.
