Harshavardhan Kapoor was the talk of the town recently because of his comments on Diljit Dosanjh winning the Filmfare Best Debut Award. He took to Twitter and questioned how Diljit can get an award for Udta Punjab when he has done many Punjabi movies. 
 
Sonam Kapoor defended her brother and spoke about the matter to a leading daily. 
 

Speaking about her brother's personality, she said, "He’s not that kind of a person. Harsh is the sweetest, gentlest, kindest soul I’ve met. And to troll him just because he made a point about the debutant’s award is just too unfair. He was speaking out of conviction. And according to me, he was not speaking out of line."

 
Defending Mirzya too, she said, "Just because it didn’t do well, doesn’t mean all the hard work that has gone into it is nullified. Even my debut film, Saawariya, didn’t work at the box office. But I’m very proud of it. And I’m proud of what my brother did in Mirzya."
 
"Harsh is one of Diljit Paaji’s biggest fans. Harsh’s objection was on technical not on creative grounds. Our father (Anil Kapoor) has always taught us to be appreciative of other actors’ works. We’ve grown up in an atmosphere where we have constantly heard other actors’ work being appreciated. Neither my brother nor I would ever feel resentful of the good work done by our colleagues," she concluded.
 
A sister in need is a sister indeed!

I don't know why people are surprised by how conceited Sonam and Harsh are. During awards season for Slumdog Millionaire, their father was a complete narcissist and repeatedly took the spotlight away from Dev Patel & Freida Pinto.

This family is super messed up. He cannot just cry about not winning an award when the whole system is rigged.

bt he is not able to be a Bollywood star

Getting everything for free in life creates problems, being anil kapoor's son might win him a role in a film but how does it win him an award? lame acting skills and yet expecting an award.

Ah, this family is always good for a laugh--off screen, that is.

Not a Sonam fan, but to be fair, DP fans should refrain from taking digs at other actresses. Nobody can top the RK/cute boxers and Vin Diesel/imaginary babies comments.

Sonam Kapoors so called acting in Neerja was very mediocre...the role itself was a meatier one n the slightest effort made it look great..which happened in case of Sonam. Kangana/Radhika/Taapsee would have nailed it..

Is that why Neerja's own family, friends, colleagues, and actual survivors of the incident said Sonam nailed it, and that they couldn't even tell the difference between Sonam and Neerja, and that it felt as if they were actually watching the real Neerja? Please, I'm no big fanatic of Sonam (though I like her), but let's give credit where it's due, shall we? If Kangana/Radhika/Tapsee would have done better, they would've been signed. With all due respect to these three (I'm also a huge fan of Radhika and Kangana) and taking nothing away from them, too bad they look nothing the part and/or could not have brought Neerja's sensitivity to the performance like Sonam did. Her bro on the other hand was wrong about what he said to and about Diljit. He should learn to remain humble and work on his performances and craft. So far the public has a very bad image of him.

If not Diljeet, at least more debutant actors this year were more deserving than Harsh Kapoor: Jim Sarbh and Harshvardhan Rane. So Sonam and Harsh, please take several seats.

There's another Harshvardhan ?!

Sonam should have just kept quiet.. as it is she's not interested in acting and only in fashion designing

Except Harsh did say everything because he was angry about someone else winning over him. That interview he gave confirmed it.

Harsh sure isn't the kind to be appreciative of other people's works, let's be real here. He has even said he would never do films like thank you and players. Enough said!

Sonam Kapoor is only saying this now since her co-actors are all getting thrown around in this mess, so she is just trying to save her self and her own movies in a way. BUT one thing is for sure Diljit Dosanjh deserves the award.

Oh boy Sonam I wish you'd just stayed mum on this or made a light hearted joke about it. I would've gone with 'I am upset that everyone is being so harsh with my brother cause I love him but at least I know we have some similarities.' To those saying Sonam doesn't praise others' talent go back and watch the actress's round table again please, her and Vidya are the only ones to appreciate every other actress on that table. Yes, she has insecurities and so does everyone else. It's unfair that people are labelling them as bad kids of a humble father, Anil Kapoor himself does a lot of self praise (albeit in a joking manner). If you can look at her as a sister who loves her brother and leave it at that. Harsh's comment was dumb and Sonam should've kept her mouth shut on the subject, little brother's going to have to learn this on his own but no need to bash her for it.

Harsh wasn't wrong tbh. And I think the Best Debut award this year deserved Jim Sarbh from Neerja who had NO FILMS before. And I find it really strange that they moved him to Best Supporting Actor where he had NO chance to win against Rishi Kapoor.

To be honest I don't think Harsh was wrong. Diljit has been in a lot of Punjabi movies and is a seasoned actor. Filmfare always does this nonsense. They create so many categories of awards to make sure all the stars are happy. The Oscars don't have a best actor popular and a best actor critics' choice! They have best actor only. Diljit should have received best supporting actor but Filmfare had to appease Rishi Kapoor. Similarly either Sonam or Alia should have got best actress, not both!

he should have taken up his technicality with the awards show producers when he got nominated weeks before instead behaving like an entitled and undeserving star brat hell bent on making himself the topic of conversations and putting himself all over the media with his tantrum. they must think that any publicity is good publicity..sonam herself has been in the news and subsequently lasted this long from her foot-in-mouth statements that she, just like her brother, has had to clarify and hash over in every interview. everyone except anil kapoors kids seem to think there was nothing out of line with diljits nomination. they just cant be convinced to mend their attitudes because the conviction that they deserve the best for just being themselves is rooted so so deep.

"My parents taught us to appreciate other actors works" .. hahah Hannah a hahahhahaha... I have only heard self praise from the whole family...and when will they understand there are so many people working harder than them in movies and don't come and claim it that they deserve the awards more...Randeep Hooda for example..and debut ?. ..I would have respected Harsh more and thought he was misquoted if he didn't go ahead and say " I wudnt have minded if I lost to Jim Sarbh " .. so basically he not only told he deserves more but also chose who he would like to lose to..heights of honesty..

Not buying this but atleast they have a good bond.

Keep talking sonam bla bla bla..lol.he is so kind and sweet that he is unappreciative of a well deserved winner. well, u can continue talking..who cares..take care

These two can't act children claim that it's not because of their father that they got into films. Isn't it the only reason that someone hired them. Salman Khan tried as well. #notgraciousatall. Loosers.

Total delusional, overrated ,brat star kids !!!

Saawariya was Flop but Ranbir was appreciated by public unlike Harsh who went under unnoticed. Never watched his movie nor intend to in future. Saw his few interviews and that was enough to decide what kind of person he is And I Was Right.He think he is some kind of God gift to Bollywood. He cannot act,he has no presence, and KRK looks better than Harsh so I don't know y that attitude

I bet keep saying "you are the best. No, you are the best" to eat other all day long.

Desperate for awards these two Kapoors

Puh-lease. Just look at what he said and you can tell he was being malicious about the whole thing. He was so spiteful about it, how can you say he is a fan of Diljit? Sometimes you have to put people in place, eventhough they may be someone you love. Really didn't expect Sonam to lie like this

Talentless and entitled brats whining why isn't the world bowing at their feet and why instead it is criticising their arrogant attitudes. And Sonam, please accept the reality that you are as dumb as anyone can get. Just because you can open your mouth and blabber like idiots doesn't make you right every time. Instead talk to your brother about toning down his arrogance and hubris as well as his disregard for any other specie who decides to act. Tell him that he needs to prove his mettle before putting down people. And if he has some grace and dignity, he wont even do that. I am shocked to see how the children of Anil Kapoor who is a gentleman and a humble guy are so brattish.

These two morons just won't let it die! Shhhh....stop talking about it. You're digging yourselves a deeper hole!

Both Sonam and her brother cannot act. Please just go away.

I've always adored this lady sine her debut but her wtf statements and her sheer lack of passion for her career is very disappointing

She doesn't have that fire in her, she could've been where others are but her first priority has never been acting. I am sure Sonam loves films and all but you're right, its not her passion. Alia, Varun this people want to stay and are passionate way more about their profession compared to her. And no I am not an Alia fan but I do acknowledge her hard work, talent and dedication to her profession and craft. On Harsh, that boy thinks he is the next and an Indian version of Joseph Gordon Levitt minus the charm and with sort of passable acting skills. Rhea seems to be the only person who knows her talent, her passion and works to make it happen in my opinion. I get the point of being proud of your hard work but you cannot judge your own work, that is not how it works in the real world. Sonam should've just kept quite, it all came out wrong once again.

Sonam and her bro is the most insecure and jealous star kids.

She is brutally honest about her feelings and those feelings are jealousy and insecurity. Though the world calls it 'being bitchy', "brutally honest" will do. Looks like her brother better not follow her in this trait. His name didn't even register in any body's mind. Ranbir had his first movie flop like epic but he was still liked a lot by both audience and movie makers. Harsh went completely unnoticed in spite of his father and his big sis, an Indian ikaun promoting the movie so desperately. Its a lot of heart burn.

Overrated family, brat line up ...can't help myself but shove off , screechy Sonam and puny bro

I guess Diljit will be to Harsh what Deepika was to you sonam and continues to be so...

I understand some people want to say something and it comes across differently. Harshly... lol. But Harsh Beta needs a lesson on two in humility. Watch his interviews. He brims with arrogance. Look at Alia and Ranbir. Immensely talented sans unwanted attitude.

Entitled brats

oh please...both of y'all are annoying af

Sonam guinenely appreciates others but Harsh is a case of sheer arrogance!!

Here we go !! she has stated already. Harsh was bitter about diljit getting award, It is fact. and sonam has a problem with all her contemporaries because she just can not act. Truth is bitter girl -- I wont say anything about harsh being talented or not. because Mirziya was his first movie. People change , improve after their first few movies. But for sonam i can say for surely she just can not act. period.

Sweet elder sister! :)

first I used to hate sonam but now I feel bad for her. she now has to defend her brother like her father used to defend her in her early days
