They have signed a film, putting the ‘Aisha’ debacle behind them
Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor have apparently put aside their differences to work together in Rajkumar Santoshi’s upcoming movie. What’s more Sonam’s dad Anil Kapoor who was involved in a verbal duel with Abhay Deol post the release of ‘Aisha’ has decided to produce the film which will be a comedy.
The Abhay-Anil tiff dates back to ‘Aisha’ which was Kapoor’s home production and starred daughter Sonam in the lead. Abhay then publicly expressed his displeasure over the way ‘Aisha’ was being made. He cattily remarked that a huge amount was being spent on the actress’ designer wardrobe while neglecting the story and characterisation. He added that he would never work in a film like ‘Aisha’ again. His comments shocked both Sonam and daddy Anil Kapoor. Eventually, Anil fired back at Abhay on ‘Koffee with Karan,’ saying that Abhay needed serious help as he was doing all the wrong things. Deol junior then retorted, “Anil is right about me doing “all the wrong things”. Aisha is the biggest proof of that.”
The verbal pow-wow continued but with time tempers cooled down. It was said that Anil had invited Abhay to the party that was held for Tom Cruise in Mumbai. It was then that Santoshi’s untitled project was discussed with the 35-year-old actor.
Meanwhile Sonam too looks happy to put the past behind her. She revealed to a tabloid recently that whatever happened between Abhay and her father had nothing to do with her and she’d be happy to work with him again. Hopefully this new-found friendship will last!
