Home Entertainment Sonam Kapoor 'trolled' on social media for embarrassing gaffe about our National Anthem

Sonam Kapoor ‘trolled’ on social media for embarrassing gaffe about our National Anthem

When some of us are listening to certain musical genres like Rap, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, the lyrics sometimes aren’t clear and we end up getting the lyrics wrong if and when we try humming that song.

According to a quote by Hindustan Times, this is what seems to have happened with Actress Sonam Kapoor but the lyrics which she apparently ended up getting wrong were not of any song but were of our National anthem.

The Hindustan Times has been running a #LetsTalkAboutTrolls campaign and Sonam Kapoor wrote an article about her experiences with so called trolls and one paragraph seems to have come back to haunt her:

Notice the line:

“Listen to the national anthem. Recall the line you heard as kids, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Issai…’

There was a slight problem for people to recollect that line as it isn’t there in the 1st place. This resulted in her getting ‘trolled’ by people:

Some even questioned HT’s editorial team for letting it pass:

Who’s the bigger dolt – A starlet who doesn’t know her National Anthem, or an editor who let this pass?#LetsTalkAboutTrolls indeed

Incredibly the story did not end here, one user pointed out that the ‘Hindu Muslim Sikh Isai’ words are indeed mentioned in the 2nd paragraph of, Jana Gana mana. This was retweeted by Sonam:

The user also claimed that Sonam learnt the complete composition:

Though it is certainly commendable if Sonam indeed learnt all the 5 stanzas of the poem by Rabindranath Tagore, her claim about this being a part of our National Anthem was still wrong. Our national anthem is just the 1st of stanza of the Jana Gana Mana song which was a translated version of Tagore’s Bengali hymn ”Bharot bhagyo bidhata“. Had Sonam written, “listen to Tagore’s peom” she would have been completely right and all the ‘trolling’ would have been misplaced.

Sonam tweeted her response to the whole controversy but didn’t acknowledge her gaffe:


This isn’t the only time celebs have got certain aspects of civics wrong. On Coffee with Karan when the question about who the President of India was asked, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhavan had shockingly answered, Prithviraj Chavan and Manmohan Singh respectively.
