On July 14, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja along with her businessman husband Anand Ahuja jetted off to London. The actress shared her journey on social media. After reaching her home in London, Sonam posted several stories of her activities. Taking to Instagram stories, Sonam shared a picture of husband Anand Ahuja working and wrote ‘Working from home’. Another video she shared was about a lakeside view, with swans in distance. However, she soon had to respond to claims that said she was being irresponsible and going out in the open and breaking ‘14 day quarantine laws’ in the city.
The debate on Twitter started on Friday when Sonam shared a short video of herself sitting in a garden and making a video of herself. Tweeting about video and another picture by actor Mouni Roy (who is also in London these days), a Twitter user Asjad Nazir, tweeted on Sunday, “Meanwhile in London: Indian actresses Sonam Kapoor and Mouni Roy breaking strict 14-day quarantine laws, putting lives in danger & setting bad example by sharing on social media. Both can potentially get arrested if reported to the police.”
Chill Bhai. Sonam is quarantining...she’s working around her house. Maybe see her insta story from today where she clearly says both her and Anand are working from home https://t.co/DpNGEPEgUW

Coming to Sonam’s defense, another Twitter user wrote: “Chill Bhai. Sonam is quarantining...she’s working around her house. Maybe see her insta story from today where she clearly says both her and Anand are working from home Face with rolling eyes.” Amused at the turn of events, Sonam then retweeted the lady who defended her and said: “I’m in my own garden attached to my building dude.. fully quarantining.. people have too much time.. just ignore.”
