Sonam Kapoor, the daughter of famous Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, has made quite a journey from the overweight star kid to the fashionista and style icon she is seen as. The Neerja actress is also known for her bold statements and not mincing any words to sound sweet or be diplomatic. Many a times, it is this habit of hers that has landed her in multiple controversies. Be it in a press conference, talking about a co-star or even her infamous rant against Ranbir Kapoor on Koffee with Karan.
She, like any other human being, has made several mistakes in her career, be it choice of films or her media bytes. We have listed for you the top 6 mistakes of Sonam’s in her Bollywood career.
- Commenting on Ranbir Kapoor
Koffee with Karan, season 3 saw the two alleged rivals, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone sharing the glorious couch and sipping coffee. However the two actresses, during the episode seemed pally and made some really puny comments against Ranbir and his sexiness. We understand that Deepika was nursing a recent heart-break, but wonder what Sonam had against him!! Rishi Kapoor was not very happy to hear such things!
- Calling Aishwarya Rai Bachchan ‘Aunty’
Sonam decided to take a dig at the light-eyed beauty queen. She stretched things too far unnecessarily by calling Ash ‘aunty’ when she was chosen as the brand ambassador for one of the products of L’Oreal. She was quoted saying, “Ash has worked with my dad so I have to call her Aunty na?” However, Sonam later said that she was ‘misquoted’ and ‘misunderstood’.
An absolute disaster as a film and even at box-office, Sonam should have never said yes to this film. Mausam, also starring Shahid Kapoor, was one of the worst films Sonam has said yes to.
- Calling Shobha De a po*n writer
This came after Shobha De made a comment on Sonam’s hotness quotient. Instead of avoiding this comment as background noise, Sonam reverted by calling her a ‘Po*n Writer’ and a ‘Menopausing Old Fossil.’ She didn’t stop there. Later in an interview with Karan Johar on being asked about Shobha De, she said “Who the hell is she? She writes bad books!”
- Rejecting Finding Fanny
Very few know that Sonam Kapoor was offered to play the lead role (eventually played by Deepika) in Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny. Too bad Sonam couldn’t do the film as it was a very well received film and Deepika’s performance was appreciated.
- Calling Katrina Kaif “shameless”
Yes, she did that!! Sonam told film journalist Anupama Chopra at the Cannes Film Festival, “I would like to give Katrina a bouquet of flowers. I don’t know how she does that. You need a certain kind of commitment and a certain kind of shamelessness to do certain things. You get that may be with stardom or with confidence in your talent or with whom you are, as a person. I need to develop that before I do films like that.”
7.Donning a Bikini
When Sonam wore a bikini in Bewakoofiyaan, it was anything but hot. It was very hyped and received most attention in the movie, but during the movie, it felt forced and unnecessary.
