Koffee with Karan drama: On one of the episodes of the infamous Koffee with Karan, Sonam and Deepika Padukone took several potshots at Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika said she’d like to gift Ranbir a box of condoms, while Sonam said he badly needed a stylist. This resulted in a backlash from Rishi Kapoor, who lashed out at Sonam and Deepika for being immature, and Karan Johar for instigating these comments. Read the full story here.
War of words with Shobhaa De: On her blog, Shobhaa commented that Sonam doesn’t “cut it in the sex appeal stakes.” Annoyed, Sonam lashed out on Twitter by writing, “For a 60-something porn writer, I am sure she knows what she’s talking about.” This continued when Shobhaa criticized I Hate Luv Storys and director Punit Malhotra (Sonam’s rumoured boyfriend at the time) tweeted saying, “Guys pls don’t take Shobha De seriously. She’s fossil who’s getting no action and going through menopause.” Sonam retweeted this, but later formally apologized to Shobhaa on the platform.
