“A father’s tears and fears are unseen, his love is unexpressed, but his care and protection remain as a pillar of strength throughout our lives.” – Ama H. Vanniarachchy I’m blessed to be born to a father who has taught me the value of integrity, morals, progressive ideas and the importance of work ethic, I’m lucky enough to marry into a family where my father in law leads by example with his optimism, spirituality and doing everything he does with an unbeatable conscience. Both of them have given me unconditional love and support. And they’ve both started with nothing and reached stars and have done everything to give their children whatever they need so they don’t have to face the same trials they faced. But our most important inheritance is the values that they have passed down. Happy Father’s Day to the super heroes in my life.. I am because of you.

Sonam Kapoor celebrated Father’s Day yesterday and took to her Instagram to talk about how her dad, Anil Kapoor and her father-in-law, Sunil Ahuja, have been super heroes in her life. While she was at it, she also expressed her opinions on the raging nepotism debate.

Sushant Singh Rajput‘s untimely demise opened a can of worms on nepotism in the industry. A lot of celebrities like Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, and Salman Khan were pulled up and unfollowed on social media over the past week. Sonam has also been one of the actors to have been targeted for being a star kid. So, she took to her Twitter to post a thread about how she is her father’s daughter and that she is proud of it.

She wrote:

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 to be his daughter.

She also shared screenshots of vile comments she has been receiving and says that the same people who are talking about being kind to others are being extremely unkind. The actress signed off by saying that she hopes no one’s parents have to ever see such comments.

Have a look at it:

The Neerja actress  also took to her Twitter last week to address that it was wrong for people to blame Sushant’s girlfriend, ex-girlfriend and colleagues for his death, without any proof.

Check out her tweet:

The actress, who was earlier quarantining with her husband and his parents in Delhi, flew back to her parents’ home in Mumbai on her birthday to spend time with them.
