Ash has lost her appeal, thinks Sonam
Has Aishwarya Rai grown too old to appeal to the younger generation any more? Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is the cosmetic product company LíOrealís new Indian brand ambassador, is of the view that Aishwary Rai Bachchan canít represent the youth anymore. On Sunday, while attending a star-studded party thrown by L Oíreal in Mumbai, the Delhi-6 girl spoke her heart out on brand endorsement and on replacing Ash who was the international face of a whole range of LíOreal products. Now, Ash will reportedly only be seen on anti-wrinkle and anti-aging products while Sonam will endorse products which will target the young audience.
When Sonam was asked why the company roped her in replacing Aishwarya, the doe-eyed beauty replied, ďI think we belong to two different generations and thatís why LíOreal has asked me to be a part of their brand.Ē She was quite candid about the fact that Ashís declining appeal. At the same time, the young Bollywood actress was all admiration for Ash and said that the level of success that Ash has achieved is very difficult for her to even think of at this age. Sonam said that she felt honored to be on the same brand platform as Aishwarya.
The tall, slim actress said, ďI am glad to be an ambassador for the brand that Aishwarya is also associated with. I will never reach that level of success at which Aishwarya is today, but being part of the same brand family feels great. Showering praises on Aishwarya, the actress continued, ďShe is an extremely beautiful woman and I have always looked up to her. Both of us have worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to work with her husband Abhishek in Delhi-6.
She is an absolute success and I would be happy if my career gets even ten percent of what she has achieved. Well thatís some ambition indeed. Sonam debuted with Bhansaliís Saawariya and was last seen with Abhishek Bachchan in Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehraís Delhi-6.
