29 Sensational Quotes By Sonam Kapoor That Shocked Us All

Sonam Kapoor, the ultimate fashion diva of Bollywood, wins hands down when it comes to flaunting an impeccable sense of style. But, when it comes to giving her opinion or talking about something in the media, she seems to suffer from a chronic "foot in mouth" syndrome! Known more for blurting out bizarre answers than her acting skills, she seems to create a buzz whenever she talks about almost anything. Sonam’s “blonde moments” have drawn flak from a lot of people in the past. As the sizzling fashion icon turned 29, in 2014, we decided to take a walk down the 29 of her most jaw-dropping, hilarious comments.
Aishwarya 'Aunty'

In 2009, Sonam announced that she was slated to walk the red carpet for a beauty brand at the Cannes Film Festival. Aishwarya, being the brand ambassador at the time, did not take her statement kindly and had her way. Sonam then retorted by calling Aiswarya an "aunty" which shocked the entire industry. She remarked, "Ash has worked with my dad so I have to call her Aunty na?"

Calling Katrina shameless
"I would like to give Katrina a bouquet of flowers. I don't know how she does that. You need a certain kind of commitment and a certain kind of shamelessness to do certain things.

Flashing her middle finger to the Press
After flashing her middle finger in the movie Players, Sonam grabbed eyeballs when she did it again at a press meet for the film.
"I don't believe in censorship so whether they like it or not, I really don't care about it. I just want people to come and see my film. Showing a middle finger is a part of today's youth."
