A war of words has begun between Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. On a recent episode of Karan Johar’s chat show, the former took a dig at her rival’s fashion sense. And Deepika is not too happy about it.
On the show, Sonam had mentioned that Anaita Shroff Adajania, Deepika’s stylist, deserved all the credit for the actor’s fashion sense.
"Deepika has upped her game, but it’s all thanks to Anaita. She has done a great job on her," said Sonam, and then went on to add, "She does not have her own style."
Now, reacting for the first time, Deepika says, "I think she (Sonam) is entitled to an opinion and I respect it."

But she does not stop there and goes on to define what style means to her. "Fashion, for me, is what I believe in, what suits my personality, what suits my body type and what I can carry off. It is not what people in the fashion world are dictating. It’s what I feel comfortable in. Wear your personality. It’s what I have said earlier as well," says Deepika.
And while the Raanjhanaa (2013) actor praised Katrina Kaif’s style statement on the show, Deepika prefers Kangana Ranaut amongst her contemporaries.
She also has high regard for veteran actor Rekha’s style. She says, "I think Rekhaji is someone who has always dressed the way she wants. Fashion trends come and go, but she stands by something she believes in and I appreciate that."
