Am I Nuts? Sisters From Another Mister

Mmm... maybe not "sisters from another mister" in this case but more like long-lost-daughter or something like that.

A couple of days ago Chaudvin Ka Chand was on TV, and as a devout Waheeda fan (and even Guru Dutt and that entire camp) it was only appropriate I watch it again. So I did. As I'm watching something strikes me that never has before...

Doesn't Sonam Kapoor look like Waheeda Rehman? Not a carbon copy or anything, but there are definitely "jhalaks" er factors that strongly remind me of her. Both of them have large expressive eyes and semi-pouty lips on their beautifully petite faces. Here's a picture of the two. You decide:

Now, I don't know if I'm really delayed in making this comparison and if it's a commonly said thing or... I am completely nuts. I'm going to go ahead and guess that it's not a commonly said thing because remember when Cine Blitz launched their book? The cover was an homage to Pyaasa in which they had Katrina Kaif pose as Waheeda. Still scratching my head on that one... it should have OBVS been Sonam! Again, I could be really off because I go through phases where I make really outrageous comparisons. When I went through my Shilpa Shetty phase, I thought Jennifer Aniston looked like her. When I went through my Dimple Kapadia phase, I thought Sandra Bullock looked like her (I still agree with that one).

Anyway, holla at a sista and let me know what you thank!

p.s. I'm not sure why this thought didn't dawn on me when they starred together in Delhi 6 together. Odd.


  1. Hmm...I agree with you a 100%...they do look very alike...maybe not EXACTLY the same but yes...the jhalaks are definitely there...

  2. Waheeda's face is longer and more appealing.
