For the unversed, in 2015, Sonam had caught swine flu while shooting for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with Salman Khan in Gujarat. The actress was airlifted from a private hospital in Rajkot to Mumbai after she tested positive for the H1N1 virus. She was admitted to Kokilaben Ambani hospital. She was discharged 11 days after hospitalisation.
The actress has been in news actor after she had changed her social media handle setting to private mode. She took the decision after receiving a barrage of vitriolic messages after Sushant Singh Rajput's death. Kapoor was called out for her tweet about the blame game after the actor ended his life. She was also trolled for her comments about him in a chat show and for being favoured as she is Anil Kapoor's daughter in the nepotism debate. A few days later she made her account public.
Today on Father's Day id like to say one more thing, yes I'm my fathers daughter and yes I am here because of him and yes I'm privileged. That's not an insult, my father has worked very hard to give me all of this. And it is my karma where I'm born and to whom I'm born. I'm proud— Sonam K Ahuja (@sonamakapoor) June 21, 2020

Then she shared screenshots of the hateful comments she and her sister Rhea had received on social media.
This is some of comments coming my way. All the media and all the people who've encouraged this sort of behaviour and instigated it. This is on you.
