Sonam Kapoor slammed people who violated the norms of lockdown while following the #9baje9minute initiative and lit crackers. But seems like her comments did not go well with producer Ashoke Pandit who indulged into a cryptic Twitter debate with her and even asked her to put out her views on the Tabligi Jamaat controversy.


Condemning the act of bursting crackers, Sonam stated how it was peaceful throughout the lockdown period. She stressed on the fact of how it is affecting the animals and leaving them traumatised.

The tweet reached Ashoke Pandit, who in his reply to Sonam wrote, “Sonam ji crackers are burst during celebrations & not only in Diwali? People are trying to be happy in these difficult times. They are at least not spreading d virus like #TabligiJamaat. I wish you would hve condemned this act of terrorism than blaming crackers.”

To which Sonam replied, “Social distancing is a must ashokeji. Also making sure there isn’t communal infighting. So that the government can concentrate on doing good like they are. I’m sure you agree. You’re a sensible man who believes in being good and kind.”

To which Ashoke Pandit Further replied that he is waiting for her view on Tabligi Jamaat controversy. He even wrote that she was trying to beat around the bush by not reacting to it and just talking about the #9baje9minute initiative.


Sonam after some time did reply and wrote, “I’m not ‘beating’ around the bush. Like I said, Social distancing is a must. And ANYONE not following that whether they are Hindu or Muslim or Christian or Sikh is wrong. I’m sure you agree. You must have very important things to do now. I think we both made our point.”

Sonam did sign off from the debate after her last tweet but Pandit still has something left to say. His further tweet is below.
