Aishwarya Rai may play the role of a demure woman on-screen but off-screen, she certainly knows how to bare her fangs as Sonam Kapoor recently witnessed.
Upcoming actress Sonam, who was signed up by L'Oreal as its brand ambassador in India, alongside Ash, seems to have made the latter insure when L'Oreal initially said the two beauties from India would walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.
Naturally, Sonam was very excited and could not hide her feelings about walking the red carpet together with Ash. However in the process, she highly offended Ash by telling the media that while she endorses the youth brand, the beautiful Aishwarya endorses product for older woman (anti-aging cream).
Actually, According to sources close to the actress, Sonam and Ash will represent Indian beauty and talent oversees at the Cannes Film Festival alongside other members of the dream team.
Bollywood sources told that Ash soon went about pulling strings and threatening that she would quit endorsing the brand if L'Oreal allowed Sonam to steal her thunder.
Ash's threat naturally made the company's Indian representatives panic as the iconic actress and former Miss World had been associated with their brand for long and they were forced to advise Sonam not to go to Paris after all.
Though Sonam did not betray her emotions upon hearing the news, her manager Monika Bhattacharya was quite upset.
"Sonam's not traveling to Cannes. The brand should know best. She's been asked not to go," Bhattacharya said. And now that Sonam is not going, her father Anil Kapoor has also decided to skip the event.
However, Ash's representative said the media is distorting the whole thing and Ash was not even aware that Sonam would be at the Cannes due to her bustle and busy time.
Hmmm…Hey what’s up ladies??? Who's do u prefer for L 'Oreal Ads,Sonam or Ash?
