Spiritual Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar thinks that "homosexuality is a tendency" which is "not a permanent thing." Yes, and he said this to the students of New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University. Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is outraged by the "irresponsible" comment made by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at the 13th Nehru Memorial Lecture, which was in response to a student's query, who had asked him how he should handle his family and friends who 'mistreat' him because of his sexual orientation, reports Scroll.in. On Tuesday, the 32-year-old actress corrected the spiritual guru in a tweet, which read: "Homosexuality is not a 'tendency' it's something you are born as and is absolutely normal. To tell someone you can change is irresponsible."
 
 

Actress Alia Bhatt also joined Sonam Kapoor in booing down the speech.
 

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's words at the lecture, as per a scroll.in report, were: "If you stand up, nobody can insult you, but if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better. This is your tendency now...just acknowledge it, accept it, and know that this tendency is not a permanent thing. It may change. I've seen many men who were gay later turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal, who are called straight people, end up being gay later in life."

Sonam Kapoor is the star of films like Khoobsurat and Aisha. She was last seen in Ram Madhvani's Neerja, for which she won a Special Mention National Award. She is currently making Veere Di Wedding (which is produced by her sister Rhea Kapoor) and she will also star in Akshay Kumar's Padman, which is slated for 2018 release.
