Sonam who has starred with Abhishek Bachchan in Delhi 6 said that she really respected Abhishek as a and has her best experiences working with him. She added that that she would always Aishwarya n a respectful manner and never call her an 'Aunty.' The controversy had taken an ugly turn when Aishwarya had made sure that Sonam misses the red carpet during the Cannes Film Festival as the face of L'Oreal in India.
Aishwarya had done this after Sonam Kapoor had commented that she was the young face of L'Oreal in India while Aishwarya Bachchan would appeal to the aged women. The former Miss World who has been the face of L'Oreal in India for a long time felt offended by this. She retarrated by making sure that Sonam didn't walk the red carpet at Cannes with Penelope Cruz, Kerry Washington, Beyonce Knowles, Eva Longoria and Scarlett Johansson.
