Sonam Kapoor, who has been more in the news for her relationship with her beau Anand Ahuja was recently ignored at an awards function.
Sonam Kapoor gave a fabulous performance this year in “Neerja”. The actress single-handedly shouldered a powerful film like this and everyone thought that she will definitely win the Star Screen Awards for Best Actress.
But the first Awards night have concluded and much to our surprise, Sonam didn’t receive any Award. While Swara Bhaskar walked away with the Best Actress (Critics) Award, it was Alia Bhatt who received the same in the Popular category.
We wonder how they missed out on Sonam totally! Although we do feel that Alia too is extremely deserving of the award, ignoring Sonam completely is not what we expected them to do.
If Star Screen wanted they could have of course announced two winners in the same category like they did for the Best Newcomer Male where Jim Sarbh and Sonam’s brother Harshvardhan ended up winning together for Neerja and Mirzya respectively.
Not only this ‘Khubsoorat’ actress was asked to perform at the Star Screen Awards where Rekha won the lifetime achievement award. While, she was asked to perform on the select numbers of the star it was Deepika Padukone who got to present the effervescent yesteryear actress with an award.
Surprised, shocked, baffled even?
Well so was Sonam. You would expect her to throw a tantrum in a true Bollywood diva style right? But she did not.
According to the source “While Sonam’s contract clearly mentioned that she would be paying tribute to Rekha as well as presenting her with the Lifetime Achievement Award , the organizers decided to have Deepika Padukone present the award to Rekha at the very last minute. Despite their lack of professionalism and ethics, Sonam maintained her cool. She sat through the show, recorded her performance even though it was nearing midnight and finally left gracefully only after she finished what she had committed to them. Sonam has always been professional, dignified and has a strong sense of responsibility.”
The source added, “Sonam is extremely well brought up and has always been dignified. While anyone in her place would have thrown a tantrum, arguing about these things are beneath her. She handled the situation with utmost class.”
