Karachi: Bollywood is not just a brewing cauldron of amusing movies and flicks, but also of all the star-wars and also ‘star-critic’ wars.
Sonam Kapoor and Shobha De’s smacking each other on twitter and on blogs continues to thrill us and whet our appetite for some fiery fun. Recently questioned at Karachi Literature Festival on what she holds against Sonam and Deepika, Shobha De retored,
‘ I have nothing against them. Deepika and Sonam are Non- Entities. I don’t care what they write on their twitter. I just do my job and they do theirs. If they do a dirt, I’ll call it that.’
Recapping the ‘little’ feud between the two, spanning over a couple of years, Shobha and Sonam have had enough of good time badmouthing each other. Where Shobha commented on Sonam’s airbrushed photo-op, ‘Sonam just doesn't cut it in the sex appeal stakes’, questions her up-bringing and calls I Hate Love Stories, ‘I Hate Dumb Stories’, Sonam squelched back with an even harder hit by calling her a ‘60 years old porn writer’ and a ‘fossil who gets no action and going through a menopause.’
Sonam also flunged stones back at Ms. De when she challenged the title of Maxim’s sexiest woman awarded to Deepika by saying,
'Deepika P is the sexiest woman on earth? Are they kidding me? She would not win a Miss Dombivali contest. I mean, look at her closely. Go on: jawline? Too wide. Eyes?Bulging. Hair line? Untidey. Speech? Verni.'
Where Deepika only responded to it in Koffee with Karan saying, people should follow some decorum in a forum even when they criticize, Sonam took up the real fight for her , ‘if she (Shobha) thinks Deepika is ordinary then she sure needs to wear glasses. Her eyesight is failing her.’
This is not the first time Shobha has had a row with celebrities, she has interestingly been engaged in quite a lot of those in her past, sometimes with Salman Khan, Arbaz Khan, and even Shahrukh Khan. Let’s see what all those crisp tweets and hard-hitting blogging leads to, but one thing can be surely said, it’s quite a platter full of sizzle, drama and entertainment to keep us glued to the Bolly-news.
