The Kapoor family came together during Sridevi’s death and then Sonam Kapoor’s wedding, and showed the world how thick they are. However, a recent interview of Sonam’s younger brother Harshvardhan, in which he talks about whether or not he takes advice from her, has started doing rounds on social media.

It’s apparently a part of his interview with Quartz magazine. In the interview, he said, “Sonam is in her own world, and she’s done all kinds of films. But I also think it’s easier sometimes for a heroine to fit in a lot of films. For example, a Padman is not driven by her, right? So she doesn’t have to be there for a 100 days. Heroines can be more free. For me now, the whole film will hinge on my shoulders. So, I don’t really take advice from her.”

He continued, “Rhea (his sister) is a producer. She has more marketing feedback as opposed to creative feedback with script and stuff. Our films (Bhavesh Joshi and Veere di Wedding) are releasing on the same day, so she’s too busy and she couldn’t help us.”

Some social media users criticised Harshvardhan for his interview. The actor responded with a tweet on Monday. He said, “If you believe everything printed in the media and start accusing people immediately ... can’t help you ... I never said this ... it’s taken completely out of context and misinterpreted ok I’m done defending myself gonna go hang with my sisters now bye.”

Harshvardhan was recently seen in Bhavesh Joshi Superhero that released alongside Sonam’s Veere Di Wedding on June 1.
