Sonam to share a stage with Academy Award Winner, Cate


There are no two ways about the fact that Sonam Kapoor is an absolute diva. Whether it’s her enviable sartorial choices or her fabulous life, Sonam is undoubtedly one of our favourites. While Sonam has been busy balancing her shoot for Padman and chick flick Veere Di Wedding, who has also been busy working on her fashion label, we hear that the actress is gearing up for her up close and personal rendezvous with a Hollywood biggie. No, it’s not for her big Hollywood debut, but Sonam is said to attend the Dubai Fest where she will be spending time with none other than Cate Blanchett.

According to a report in a leading tabloid, Sonam is slotted to be a part of the 14th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) that begins today. Sonam Kapoor is the face of IWC Watches which will give the fashionista not just the opportunity to present awards to filmmakers but also watch some of the work by renowned directors from the region. While Sonam will be there as a guest, Cate heads to the jury of the IWC filmmaker awards. Over the years, time and again, Sonam has spoken about what a huge fan she is of the Carol actress. A source revealed to the tabloid that Sonam is indeed very excited and can’t wait to meet Cate. The source said, “As an actor she has always admired Cate’s work. Sheis looking forward to discuss cinema and fashion, her two greatest passions with Cate.”

Speaking about the event, Sonam said that she’s eagerly looking forward to it. ” I look forward to meeting all the beautiful women from all walks of life at the event.” Sonam is expected to fly to Dubai later today and will be seen walking the red carpet and attending the gala with her most fashionable foot forward. Another Indian we’ll definitely see at the ceremony is Piku fame, Irrfan Khan. The internationally acclaimed actor will be receiving an honorary award for his contribution to cinema at DIFF.

On the work front, Sonam has been putting in her heart and soul into the filming of her two upcoming Bollywood ventures. The diva recently made us go weak in our knees with her slaying at the Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards 2017. Not only did she look fab, she also bagged two awards, one for the Most Stylish Star and another award as the Style Icon of the Year. #WOW! Watch this space for more updates on this diva…
