Mumbai: After the international media mistook Deepika Padukone for Priyanka Chopra, actress Sonam Kapoor yet again faced the consequences of western media’s ignorance towards Bollywood.
Recently, at the 70th edition of Cannes Film Festival, fashionista Sonam was tagged as Deepika Padukone by a popular American photo stock agency, which later went viral.
The agency wrote, “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.”
However, Sonam Kapoor made it clear on Twitter that this was merely an error.
She wrote, “One picture in a milieu of 1000s tagged right is an error, not a misidentification. Gets your facts right don’t believe Pr’s.”
Whereas Deepika had got so offended by that identity goof-up that she termed this antic by the international media as racist.
After Sonam made heads turn at the French Riviera with her fabulous fashion game, she is now prepping up for her upcoming film ‘Veere di Wedding’ alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar.
Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor, who also doubles up as her stylist, is producing the film.
Well, after making this mistake on more than two occasions, the international media should probably start using Google more often.
