Bollywood actresses Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were never seen in one frame as they both were anything, but allegedly rivals.
Sonam Kapoor in the initial days of her filmy career nearly replaced Aishwariya, and also had referred her as 'aunty' in an interview, as the ambassador of a cosmetic brand L'Oréal, which was associated with Cannes.
According to the grapevine, Aishwarya ensured that Sonam would not walk the red carpet in that year's Cannes International film festival. And since then, the two ladies haven't spoken to each other. However, Miss Kapoor, over the years, has created a strong presence as a fashionista at Cannes.
A few years back, Sonam made yet another surprising remark on Aishwarya, when the latter donned purple lipstick for Festival De Cannes.
The latest is that Sonam made a call to Aishwarya to invite her to the wedding. As per the latest report, the bride-to-be has personally invited Aishwarya to her wedding. Pinkvilla.com quoted a source saying, "Last week, when Sunita Kapoor bumped into Aishwarya at the wedding reception of Saudamini Mattu, the niece of designer Sandeep Khosla, she made it a point to greet her warmly and personally invited her for her daughter’s wedding. After a couple of days, Sonam also called Aishwarya and invited her for the wedding."
However, Sonam shares a cordial term with Aishwarya's husband Abhishek Bachchan. She has even worked with him in two films - 'Delhi 6' and 'Players'. On the other hand, Aishwarya is currently working on a project 'Fanne Khan' which also stars Sonam's father and actor Anil Kapoor.
