MUMBAI (Web Desk) – Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor has said that Aishwarya Rai chose to use purple lipstick at the Cannes because she wanted to be talked about.

According to Indian express, when she was asked about Aishwarya’s purple lips, Sonam said the actress should be happy with the attention she got.

“The whole idea of fashion and make-up is for people to discuss it and I guess she wanted to be discussed. She achieved what she wanted to achieve with it, which I think is great”, she added.

“I don’t think she walked for L’Oreal that day. There was an Amul ad on it, people were discussing it. I think it was great to do it in the 15th year, it’s cool. She was trending everywhere.”

But she wasn’t all catty. Sonam, who is also one of the celebrity faces of the cosmetic brand, said Aishwarya carried off the tricky colour with “aplomb.”

When asked if she would ever try a shade like that, the “Neerja” actress said, “I have done purple lipstick in the past, I have even done black for a shoot….People haven’t spoken about me!”
