Sonam Kapoor ignores Deepika at an award function


Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone recently made headlines with the rumors of the two avoiding each other at an award function. It is to be noted that the two actresses haven’t exactly been best friends.

The instance of their ‘friendship’ created some hot news with their behavior at the award show. It is said that Sonam refused to sit with Deepika, and even asked to have her seat changed as she did not want the company of the ‘Ramleela’ actress.

A source reported to the media, "Sonam walked in and asked the organizers to change her seat as she was not keen to meet Deepika, who was to be seated in the same area. She was then accommodated in another actors' group and immediately left after collecting her award."

But Sonam’s spokesperson tried to cool the matter by stating, "Sonam left long before Deepika even came in - that was an hour before her award was announced. Moreover, she had to rush for a family dinner. Sonam was backstage and on her way out when Deepika walked in. They are absolutely cordial."

It seems Sonam is somewhat confused regarding her rivalry with Padukone. On one hand, she avoided any talk of the rumored event at the award show. While on the other hand, she was quite outspoken about Deepika at ‘Coffee with Karan’.

When the ‘Khoobsoorat’ actress came to KJo’s ‘Coffee with Karan’ with father Anil Kapoor, she said some improper things about Padukone. She shocked the viewers with some not-so-good comments on Dippy. When Karan asked her to name a-good-girl-gone-bad, you can very well guess what Sonam’s answer was - Deepika! Further, Karan asked her “What is the one thing Deepika Padukone has, that you don’t?” and there came Sonam’s reply , “An over-enthusiastic PR team.” It is worth mentioning that the  two ladies shared the same PR team, but Sonam later switched to another one.

She even commented on Deepika’s fashion style, saying “Deepika doesn’t have her own style.” Deepika’s fans did not like Sonam’s comments, with many calling her views even “stupid”. But this particular judgment over Deepika’s fashion statement was loathed by fans, especially when Deepika’s style has been deemed one of the most magnificent in B-town. The rivalry between the two is further evident by the fact that Dippy was earlier signed by Sooraj Barjatya for ‘Ram Ratan Dhan Payo’. But she later cancelled it as she was not free on the required dates. And who in turn got the movie? Of course Sonam Kapoor!
