ash vs sonam for l' Oreal!


Mumbai, 22 May 2009 @ 02:10 am IST.

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?

SONAM - fresh, young, nice cut face, friendly, only 2 films old
Aish - Jaded, old, chubby, too much botox, icy, unapprochable

Hmmm... from the news above, I just deplore why Sonam's cancel out from Canes. Is it really caused by their "tension"??...It will be nice to see Ash and Sonam as L 'Oreal branda ambassador can walk together in the red carpet!

Ash makes a good model for sure though she doesn't ve acting talent...But as the time progresses & so does Ash's age, Ash can easily be replaced..Sonam is good too equally...

For people saying that sonam does not have any movies or just 2 flop...please tell me what was ash all these years...she was a horrible actress and a big flop queen...she had only 2 SLB hits to her...u dont need hits to endorse L'oreal..its PR and hype which ash always has in abundance..only after dhoom-2 ash as an actress has improved...

I like both of them. But I don't like Aishwarya's ad. It doesn't do justice to her.

i thought ash was fake but this sonams in leading her in fakeness

mans's picture

media going after full throttle!! nothing new... same old thing...obviously they will believe sonam n not ash..again nothing new..

Anonymous's picture

judging by these poster here, ash's are awful, and sonams is wow! But saying that ash in the more pretty lady in real-life.

personally both should do it, there's so many products to endorse, they need to get sonam doing some of their hair product, she has stunning hair will look good in adverts.

I don't think one needs to have a huge career behind them to be an ambassador for make-up! unknown faces can become it too. Ash hardly had a successful career behind her when she started, she just had her crown and beauty.

Sonam!!! Her billboard are like EVERYWHERE.. Loreal is massively promoting her now.

hey, what did they do to ash's face in the bottom pic? i know they photoshop a lot but she looks like a diff person:((((

Anonymous's picture

Undoubtedly Aishwarya, I mean she has some kind of credit to her name, she has actually achieved something in her career as an actress so far and of course the fact that she is totally gorgeous.

Although I have nothing against Sonam, the truth remains that right now she's nothing more than Anil Kapoor's daughter, both of her films didn't do well at all and basically comparing to Aishwarya, Sonam's beauty falls short.

I prefer Sonam. She looks fresh.

shez got a beautful face

Hey the big question - is sonam trying to ride on Ash's coat tails by misusing Ash's name to gain publicity and media attention? Sonam will also be overshadowd by Freida too.

sapna's picture

Aish of course.

sasha's picture

well, I like Sonam more, but Aish makes a better brand ambassador. Sonam is only two films old afterall.
