Sonam Kapoor on Pinch

Arbaaz Khan‘s chat show Pinch has been creating a lot of buzz since its first episode. The show saw stars like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Dhawan and more. The recent celeb to grace the show was the fashionista of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor.

During the interaction, Arbaaz pointed out that Sonam keeps reacting to people on social media. He also brought up the infamous Shobha De’s controversy. He said:

“You have reacted to certain comments and statements on social media, you have reacted to Shobha De at one time and then you were sat down by your dad Anil Kapoor who told you…”

Sonam quickly cut off Arbaaz saying:

“No it was not my dad who sat me down actually, it was my sister. Shobha De has very strong opinions, sometimes they can get extremely personal. Sometimes they are intelligent and then sometimes they are just plain provocative. I that time thought that if she has an opinion then I am allowed to have my opinion about her.”

She added,

“I was very hot-headed, ready to jump the gun and very defensive when I was young but my sister turned around and said that ‘why do you want to stoop to her level’ and I don’t necessarily think I was stooping to her level.”

She also said,

“There is something called constructive criticism and there is something called personal criticism. I felt at that time that her criticism was very personal, it was like a double-edged sword. She said something very nice about me and at the same time, she said I was ordinary. She said she’s a good actress but she is the girl next door ordinary looking. Simple, no sex appeals.”
