One Twitter user tagged Sonam drawing her attention to a comment allegedly being attributed to her by a Pakistani magazine implying that she had criticised Pakistanis for trolling Swara after the latter called Pakistan ‘failing state’ and ‘un-secular (sic).’  Sonam wrote, “I didn’t defend her for this! Get your facts right.”

Her next tweet explained in a bit more detail. She wrote, “My defence of her (Swara) has nothing to do with her comments on Pakistan! Get your fact right and stop trying to spread mischief and hate!”

When journalist Samina Shaikh informed her that the comments being attributed to Sonam had ‘come from ANI to every media agency,’ Sonam replied, “Maybe see what the question was! It’s was to her scene in the film and why her character was trolled! (sic)”

Swara had come under attack from Pakistani celebrities and ordinary social media users for her controversial comments on Pakistan in the wake of Veere Di Wedding being banned in the nighbouring country due to profanity and use of objectionable sexual dialogues.

Popular Pakistani VJ and actor Urwa Hocane had lashed out at Veere Di Wedding actor for her ‘contradictory’ statements on Pakistan. Urwa had also posted two videos of Swara to highlight what prompted her to call out the Indian actor’s contradictory statements on Pakistan. In the first video, Swara is heard telling a Pakistani TV anchor just how mesmerized she was by the hospitality of Pakistani people. She’s heard saying to an applauding audience, “Pakistan is not like how it is described, an enemy state. I swear, I have been to London, New York, Istanbul, Paris, every city fails in front of Lahore.”

However, in the second video, the Veere Di Wedding actor is heard calling Pakistan a ‘failing state’ and a ‘non-secular‘ country, run by ‘Sharia Law.’ She adds, “I don’t understand why we keep taking pleasure from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan.”

Swara had also faced incessant trolling by the members of the right-wing brigade on her masturbation scene in the movie.
