Sonam, however, has no regrets, and after recently attending a special screening, has been openly ­showing her appreciation for the film that also stars her cousin Arjun Kapoor.
“Sonam immediately agreed and watched the film when Homi invited her for the special ­screening,” says the source. In fact, although often pitted as rivals, Sonam did not hold back her praise for Deepika when she met her at the screening. “They greeted each other warmly and spoke at length about the film. Sonam was all praise for her, ” says an onlooker.
The film also stars veteran actors Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapur.
