Sonam Kapoor vs Aishwarya Rai vs Deepika Padukone? Sonam Kapoor calls these post-Cannes comparisons ‘foolish’
Sonam Kapoor could have been mistakenly classified Deepika Padukone in Cannes by the foreign press this year, but does it affect Sonam? We do not believe this because this light beauty knows exactly why she is here and really knows how to have fun doing what she likes the most. She is expected when she goes to Cannes, and she jumps and says a chocolate croissant.
Shabana Azmi tweeted at the time, Cannes was not so much about fashion, but about movies. Do you think this is the situation of the Cannes Film Festival today?
No I dont think so. It’s a film festival and everyone works for their movies, but I’m here on behalf of L’Oréal Paris is a make-up brand. If I went in here, a movie, you give me a very different way, but since I’m walking to the composition and the brand of glamor, it makes sense to wear makeup and have fun.
Until a few years later, the players were not worried about how they looked when they traveled. But it has changed, what do you say?
I can take my credit for that, I guess (dress well at the airport). But I will not take into account the situation at the airport, because I never called the press at the airport to cover things “identified by the airport.” Most of the time when I’m at the airport, the press is not called. I would not call the paparazzi when I have my personal time at all. On the red carpet, I love dressing. This happened after my sister became my stylist, and I’m still there. My sister and my team make sure I look good being myself, and that’s what I like. I take no credit for anything more standing and smiling.
What about the representation of Indian films in Cannes?
I do not know why too many Indian films do not come to Cannes. But I only know that the Indian market is very different from the international market. We do not have a typical formula, especially at the last moment a movie succeeds as well. Take Neerja Dangal or even, for example. As soon as you hear the film festival has a label, producers believe that it will not work well commercially. This may be because many producers do not enter their films at festivals, unless we need someone to distribute them. This is my experience, I can not say for all. A movie like Slumdog Millionaire has become a hit worldwide because of the holidays too, like the lunch box. So there are different aspects of the story. But then, India is a closed market, and we benefit. I am not the right person to do a business analysis, but this exit is very humble.
Deepika Padukone get many critics in other international aspects of the red carpet, but in Cannes, you can appreciate its appearance. What do you think he’s done here?
I think he was amazing in all his appearances! It looks fun and it is in itself. She looks amazing!

All of this, compared to Aishwarya Rai in Cannes, will now be compared to Deepika Padukone as well. Your comments, do you think it is unfair to compare?
Comparisons are not in my head, that’s what the media. They must decide whether it is good or bad, because it is they who oppose women against the other when they should celebrate all. It is not me, it is another person, I do not consider this culture, I consider this madness. I did not even settle.
