The Bollywood actress has made her mark in the Indian film industry, owing to her successful films and acting prowess. However, the actress is not only known for her acting talents but also due to her ability to speak her mind. Here are ten statements from the actress which became controversial:-
1 Ranbir Kapoor is a Mama’s Boy

2 Criticising Deepika on her sense of style
Considered an expert on fashion, Sonam once candidly said that Deepika Padukone doesn’t have a sense of style.

3 When she called Sonakshi Sinha ‘foolish’
Sonakshi Sinha had once stated that Sonam Kapoor was more of a style icon than an actress, to which she responded:-
“Even I said plenty of foolish things when I was at that age. I give everyone the benefit of doubt.”
