Who is more beautiful, Kareena or Sonam Kapoor?

Kareena. There’s a natural spark in her, and she knows how to slay even without makeup and in simple clothes. Sonam, on the other hand, tries to work to create a headline. It’s all rehearsed and tried. Bebo goes with the flow.

Every year L’Oréal gets all its brand ambassadors to Cannes. This is primarily why Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai keep going to Cannes without any movies being screened.

Who is the best actress between Sonam Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt?

Alia Bhatt is a better actress than Sonam Kapoor. Alia Bhatt is the most talented, spontaneous, brilliant, and versatile actress of the present generation. She has acted exceedingly well not only in commercial movies such as ‘Student of the Year’, ‘2 States’, ‘Kapoor & Sons’ but also in critically acclaimed movies such as ‘Highway’, ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Dear Zindagi’, ‘Raazi’, ‘Gully Boy’ etc. to name a few. She is simply brilliant in emotional scenes. Her portrayal as a simple small-town girl character is awesome in ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’. She portrays every character convincingly and impresses the audience with her performance. Sonam Kapoor, on the other hand, is not as brilliant as Alia Bhatt. In my opinion, Sonam Kapoor has been good at ‘Neerja’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. She might become a better actress in the near future.
