Sonam Kapoor might be wishing she would have kept quiet when the time was right! On Koffee With Karan, she had famously said, “If you’re not good-looking, they think you are a good actor. Just because you look ordinary and you talk loud doesn’t mean you’re a good actor.’ Kangana Ranaut, who is a simple yet classy actor with meaty roles and striking performances, was taken aback by Sonam’s comments.
In an interview with a leading newspaper, Kangana says, "Sonam has said that people who act well are ugly, I have heard. So, do I get the crown of being the ugliest person because after watching Queen, people have been telling me that I act really well. So according to Sonam, I am the ugliest actor in Bollywood today. Well, I accept that with all the gratitude and humility."
In what may turn out to be one of the most controversial fights Kangana feels it’s time for the industry to look out for quality actors rather than look for good looking sellout ones. She added, “Sonam really needs to get her facts right about acting. Actors aren't models. It's a different technique to convey expressions and emotions and it has got nothing to do with the looks. And we should have a variety of actors just for the sake of casting. We don't have right casting in our country. It's high time we get rid of this six-pack brigade and glamorous looking people.” Ouch. Truth does sting.
