The ultimate fashion diva of B-Town turns 30 today and when it comes to flaunting a flawless fashion sense, Sonam Kapoor wins hands down. However, the young icon is believed to have a big mouth as when it comes to give statements and opinions, it seems that she suffers from a chronic ‘foot in mouth’ disorder.
Anil Kapoor’s dearest daughter has always created a buzz in the tinsel town whenever she has been asked for her opinion or view on something. Her ‘blonde’ statements have often attracted criticism from her peers in Bollywood in the past. On her big day today, let’s take a look on some jaw-dropping, side-splitting comments she has made so far. Read on and enjoy a good laugh…
1) Indirect attack on Deepika Padukone
Soon after DP announced her decision to work towards the cause of mental health on micro-blogging site Twitter, Sonam Kapoor who has reportedly not been in good terms with the actress yet another time commented on Deepika’s declaration. While she had earlier commented on Dippy’s style, she in another indirect attack on Dippy was clear enough to explain that things have not got any better between the two. According to a media report, taking a jibe at Dippy’s announcement, Sonam said that she would not announce her decision to do a cause on social media.
2) Showed middle finger in public
The leggy lass showed her middle-finger to the press during the promotions of her movie Players starring Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu. The actress has always proclaimed to be young and spontaneous and speaking about the same, she said, “I do not believe in censorship, so whether like it or not, I really don’t care about it. I just want people to come and see my movie and showing a middle finger is a part of today’s youth.”
The act of showing middle-finger came into the spotlight after the Censor Board objected to Kapoor’s similar act in the movie.
3) Aishwarya Rai is an ‘Aunty’
The diva shocked one and all after she tagged the former Miss World and another Bollywood sensation Aishwarya Rai as ‘aunty’. The catfight between the two started after the latter was replaced by Sonam for a cosmetic brand as their Brand Ambassador. “Ash has worked with my dad so I have to call her Aunty na?” However, Sonam later said that she was ‘misquoted’ and ‘misunderstood’.
4) War of words with Abhay Deol
The famous fight between Sonam Kapoor , father Anil Kapoor and Abhay Deol is no secret especially in Bollywood. Soon after Anil’s home production ‘Aisha’ had hit the theatres, Abhay Deol, expressed his annoyance of a huge amount being spent on Sonam Kapoor’s dresses in the movie and blamed that not enough importance was paid to the film’s characterization and this was solely the reason the movie failed at the Box Office.
According to the grapevine, Sonam even shot back at Abhay following the controversy and for the way he spoke about her ‘Daddy’ and stressed on the fact that ‘they are not friends’ anymore.
5) Katrina Kaif is Shameless
In an interview, Sonam reportedly referred to Katrina Kaif as shameless and on being asked about the reason she said so, Kapoor explained, “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 certain kind of shamelessness to do certain things.”
6) Shobhaa De is a ‘porn writer’
Sonam Kapoor has a long list of controversies with author Shobhaa De. In one of the most bizarre statements against the famous writer, Kapoor said, “For a 60-something porn writer, I am sure she knows what she’s talking about.”
7) Who is Shobhaa De?
On a famous chat show, ‘Koffee with Karan’, when host Karan Johar quizzed Sonam about her famous war of words with Shobhaa, she yet another time attacked the writer and said, “Who the hell is she? She writes bad books!”
8) Sonakshi Sinha is foolish
In an interview, Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi Sinha had mentioned that Sonam is more of a style icon than a Bollywood actress. Reverting to her, Sonam said, “Even I said plenty of foolish things when I was at that age. I give everyone the benefit of doubt.”
9) Several comments against Ranbir Kapoor
Sonam Kapoor has commented on Ranbir Kapoor definitely more than once. Following her remark that “Ranbir is not sexy unless he strips,” she then said that, “Ranbir needs a stylist.”
Another remark from Sonam against her ‘Kapoor friend’ did not go well with the ‘Besharam,’ actor. Sonam during a show said, “Ranbir is a great friend, but not good boyfriend material. I wonder how Deepika held on to him for so long!”
Not only was this, in a magazine, speaking about Ranbir, Sonam was quoted, “Are girls drooling over him (Ranbir) Really? Ranbir isn't sexy at all. Ranbir is a mama's boy; his mother cuts his toenails for him!”
10) Indian men and gay comment
Sonam had once commented on the fashion sense of the Indian men. As mentioned in a leading magazine, Sonam said, “Indian men don’t understand fashion unless they are gay.”
11) When she described her ‘body parts’
In one of the interviews, bold and audacious Sonam spoke about why she once refused to wear bikini. “I refuse to wear a bikini. I have a saggy bum, I have cellulite, I said in an interview recently that my t*ts and a*s are not very nice so... I recently fit into a size 2 dress, which is great because I was size 16 once,” she had said.
However, Sonam later went on to wear a bikini for her movie ‘Bewakoofiyaan’.
12) Deepika’s PR Team
In another controversy that started on ‘Koffee with Karan’, Season 4, when director and host of the show Karan Johar quizzed her about what her competitor Deepika Padukone has that she does not have, Sonam at her spontaneous best said, “An over-enthusiastic PR team.”
13) Comments on Kareena Kapoor
While she once in an interview to a leading daily had said that she does not mind turning gay for Kareena, in her ‘candid chat’ with Karan Johar on his chat show, Sonam said, “Kareena is big on gossip!”
14) Fashion advises to Bollywood stars
Karan Johar has often put tricky questions in front of Sonam on his show. In Season 4 of ‘Koffee with Karan’, when he asked her to give a fashion advice to Vidya Balan, she said, “Dress like yourself”.
This was followed by another similar query for Parineeti Chopra to which Sonam answered, “Don’t wear those tight clothes!”
15) No fashion sense in Bollywood
Once again, Karan Johar in Season 3 of his show asked Sonam about a name in the industry that needs a stylist, to which Sonam replied, “Everyone! They all suck!”
But it did not end here as Karan went on to ask another provoking question. “So, who do you think has had cosmetic surgery in Bollywood?” he asked to which Sonam answered, “Honestly, lots of people. And they look really scary!”
Well, keeping these statements in mind, and the debates that have opened up because of it, it would be no wrong to say that Sonam Kapoor is soon becoming a ‘controversy queen’ of Bollywood. But girl, we believe in you when you say (I do not intend to hurt anyone and I just try to be funny) and hope that people too start taking things a little more positively, especially when you are ‘not’ trying to be ‘rude’ to them.
