Sonam Kapoor: Middle finger is a part of our lingo!

Players actor Sonam Kapoor doesn’t see anything wrong in the controversial gesture

Sonam Kapoor is perhaps the only actor who will claim she is outspoken and you will have to believe it. From calling a famous columnist names on Twitter to revealing Ranbir Kapoor’s secrets on a chat show, Sonam has never held back from speaking her mind. How could she keep quiet about a controversy surrounding her? Last month, Sonam became a trending topic when Abbas Mustan released the trailer of their upcoming film Players, in which the Kapoor gal parks a car while raising her middle finger. There was much uproar about the censors passing the trailer with the gesture, and even more laughs when the censor board officials claimed that their colleague who passed the trailer was unaware of what the gesture meant. Sonam recently told us that she can’t understand all the hoopla. “I don’t believe in censorship in any field. We are entitled to freedom of speech and expression, it is our right. Middle finger is part of our lingo. I didn’t even think about it when I was doing it. It’s just the way you are. I never claimed to be a lady,” she states. Sonam might protest, but nowadays her finger is blurred in the trailers. You may also ask why so, when Ranbir’s pointed middle finger was not blurred in Rockstar. The debate as to the ‘propriety’ of the gesture is endless. We are just glad at least one female actor in Bollywood has the guts to say what she thinks. Good going, Sonam!
