Sonam Calls Ash Aunty!

Can’t believe it? The innocent looking, sweet and docile Sonam Kapoor is once again making headlines for her cheekiness. A few weeks back Sonam said in an interview that Aishwarya belonged to the older generation. Not surprisingly, the pretty gal had to face the music for her lack of diplomacy.

Everyone knows now that Sonam was supposed to walk the Red Carpet at Cannes along with Ash. But this comment cost her the big opportunity to be noticed internationally. Aishwarya Rai, who is the international face for L’Oreal got Sonam (the Indian face of the brand) bumped off the list of brand ambassadors walking the Red Carpet for L’Oreal. Such is the influence and reach of the junior Mrs. Bachchan.

But the storm has not blown over yet. Sonam does not seem ready to take this insult lying down. So the latest gossip is really funny and amusing. Sonam says, “'Ash has worked with my dad so I have to call her aunty na?”

How amusing this new nickname “Aunty Ji” will seem to Ash, is anybody’s guess. But what’s really interesting is that Sonam has real spunk! That must come from being Anil Kapoor’s daughter, I guess. It is really great to see that the younger lot of Bollywood actors are spunky and have gumption. How boring is it to be always “politically correct”?

Even though it’s not a very polite thing to say, it’s true. Many young women all over the world have to come to terms with being called aunty or aunt. Why should Ash be any different?
