Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor found herself brutally trolled by internet users from Indian after her anti-war stance was slammed.

Sonam in a tweet expressed her stance amid rising tensions between India and Pakistan.

Cheering for peace, the 'Ek Ladki ko Dekha' starlet said:

"The average Indian has more in common with the average Pakistan than he does with a Hindu fundamentalist who wants to bomb in the name of Ram and lynch minorities and rally in support of child rapists."

She added, "Ordinary citizens everywhere just want to have a normal life and go to world and raise their children well and save up for a decent home.

The 33 years old actress, condemning war, said, "The cost of this extraordinary hatred between fundamentalists in both countries is eventually going to be paid by the ordinary citizens of both countries and the soldiers who are always first in line of a fire they did not ignite."

Following her statement, Sonam received severe backlash from Twitter users in war-mad India.
