This is not the first time when Sonam Kapoor garnered the limelight for her controversial statements. After the release of her debut film, Sonam’s name was linked to actor, Ranbir Kapoor. When the actress was asked to respond about the same in an interview, pat came the reply:
“Ranbir is not boyfriend material. Are girls liking him, really? Ranbir is not sexy at all. He is Mama’s Boy, whose toenails are also cut by the mother.”
When author Shobha De criticized Sonam Kapoor’s film, I Hate Love Story and suggested a new title, ‘I Hate Dumb Stories’ and also called Sonam “a lassie who lacks oomph”, the actress didn’t let go of the attack. Responding to Shobha's comment, Sonam tweeted:
“Guys please don’t take Shobhaa De seriously. She’s a fossil who’s getting no action and going through menopause.”
