Sridevi likes Deepika Padukone more than Sonam Kapoor

Sridevi likes Deepika Padukone more than Sonam Kapoor

At least that’s what we gather from the 80s leading lady’s latest statements

The once-upon-a-time Numero Uno star Sridevi is the next in line to return to movies with R Balki’s wife Gauri’s directorial project –English Vinglish. In an interview, the Hawa hawai lady was asked to give her views on the current crop of female stars in B-town. Sridevi, who is known for her powerful and comic performances in the 80s, eulogised everyone, from the current sensation Vidya Balan to her niece Sonam Kapoor. But what caught our attention were the words of praise she chose for Deepika Padukone.

She said, “I fell in love with Deepika Padukone from her first film Om Shanti Om. It didn’t seem like her debut film. She’s a stunning girl.” Whereas Sridevi felt her brother-in-law and co-star Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam is very pretty and a promising actress. Don’t these words sound pale against the glorifying adjectives used for Deepika?

So we wonder what Sonam has to say to her aunt’s statement! Dippy and Sonam appeared together on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee with Karan and shared more than giggles, but we don’t think they are good friends. Like it or not, two female actors in B-town can never be friends. We are not saying that, many leading ladies have said it time and again.

Sonam and Dippy have had tough competition with each other from the beginning. Dippy’s Om Shanti Om became a blockbuster hit, whereas Sonam’s Sawaariya failed miserably. And a reason for further resentment between the two pretty actors is that Dippy has skillfully created a strong position as an actor in the industry, while Sonam is still struggling to get people to look beyond her fashion statements.

We hope Sri’s appreciation for the Padukone babe doesn’t ruffle feathers  in the Kapoor household!

      I agree… it just seems these people want to create controversy where there isn’t any… it seems most articles on this site lack any kind of substance

    this is really funny…I find Sonam better than deepika…she was really promising in saawariya…deepika is pretty too but she didn’t act in OSO, she has a different voice in the movie whereas she has a very husky voice….
