deepika padukone, sonam kapoor cannes 2017

The 2017 edition of the most prestigious film festival overseas at Cannes, saw many Bollywood celebs looking fashionably best and amongst them were actresses like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor who grabbed the maximum amount of eyeballs for their vivid attires on the red carpet. But, unexpectedly, a popular American photo stock agency mistook Sonam Kapoor’s pictures to be those of Deepika Padukone and stated, “Indian actress Deepika Padukone arrives for the film ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ in competition at the 70th Annual International Film Festival in Cannes, France on May 21, 2017.” This resulted into Twitter going berserk over the blunder and media went into an overdrive with the news.

Now, actress Sonam Kapoor has reacted on the entire incident as she tweets, “One picture in a milieu of 1000s tagged right is an error not a misidentification. Gets your facts right don’t believe Pr’s .” Here’s the tweet:

It’s quite commendable to see Sonam tackle the issue so maturely.
