Shobhaa De, who sparked a war of words with Sonam Kapoor by calling her a “lassie who lacks oomph”, has now referred to her as “super hot”. It’s a way from Shobhaa’s end to extend an olive branch to the Khoobsurat actress. Inspired by online portal eBay India’s campaign titled #ThingsDon’tJudge, Shobhaa took the first step towards reconciling with Sonam.
On Wednesday, she tweeted: “Saw this ad #ThingsDontJudge but people do. Inspired to make amends. Sonam Kapoor, I got it wrong: You are super hot.”
Recently, as a guest contributor for Buzzfeed, the actress clarified how she succumbed to pressure when she was only 13-years-old, how even after becoming a movie star it took her years to believe she looked the part and how she’s in a healthier space now.
Kapoor wrote, “Like every girl, I spent many nights through adolescence leaning into my bedroom mirror, wondering why my body looked nothing like it should. Why does my belly crease? Why do my arms jiggle? Why am I not fair? Why are there dark patches under my eyes? Why am I taller than boys my age? Do stretch marks ever go away? Will this cellulite stay forever?”

Sonam’s tiff with Shobhaa started when the author criticized her film “I Hate Luv Storys” in one of her blogs, labelling it as “I Hate Dumb Storys” and calling Sonam “a lassie who lacks oomph”.
Later, the actress posted on the social media platform: “Guys please don’t take Shobhaa De seriously. She’s a fossil who’s getting no action and going through menopause. So just for her.”
