Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor made their Bollywood debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya. While her debut was highly anticipated, the film – which also featured a cameo by Salman Khan – failed to impress and bombed at the box office. However, around the time of the film’s release, rumors about an affair between the two then budding actors intensified.
Actually, during the promotion of the film, Ranbir even asked Sonam to go on a date and she agreed. Reports claim that all was well between the Kapoor family till the sinking of SLB film and then as the film faded away, so did the spark between them. After that, the soon-to-be mom started taking potshots at Animal actor in her interviews, and below is one such example.
Sonam Kapoor has repeatedly cast a shadow on Ranbir Kapoor. In one such moment – after the Rockstar actor called the Neerja actress a ‘drama queen’ in one of his interviews, Sonam took revenge by calling her a mama’s boy. In a conversation with Vogue, she said, “Are the girls gossiping on him (Ranbir)? Really? Ranbir is not sexy at all. Ranbir is an uncle’s son, his mother cuts his toenails.”
Interestingly, this was not the only occasion when Sonam Kapoor took a dig at Ranbir Kapoor. When she shared Koffee With Karan’s couch with Deepika Padukone – who recently broke up with RK, Mrs Kapoor-Ahuja said Ranbir was a great friend “but I don’t know if he is a great boyfriend.” In this she said, “Honestly speaking. He is a really nice guy, he has family values, he is really respectable. I have known Ranbir all my life but as a boyfriend I don’t know. He has so much.” Great job hanging him for a long time.” During the same conversation, when Deepika Padukone talked about her RK tattoo, Sonam called it ‘scars of battle’.
Over the years, Sonam and Ranbir have become more cordial with each other and both of them have less of a quip. They came together and starred opposite each other in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, a biopic on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt.
On the personal front, Ranbir Kapoor recently tied the knot with Alia Bhatt on the balcony of his Bandra residence in the presence of family and close friends. Sonam Kapoor, on the other hand, is happily married to Anand Ahuja for more than 4 years and is all set to welcome her first child in a few months.
