As usual the fashionista of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor was seen living up to her notorious image as she has been amongst the most controversial people who have ever set foot on the show; and the release teaser is the evident proof for why she has made that name for herself.

Arjun also sarcastically announced out loud that Sonam is back, ladies and gentleman, implying how she has yet again lived up to her reputation of saying the most unfiltered things possible while staying unabashed.

The teaser also showed how the forgetful Sonam Kapoor went on to call the upcoming Brahmastra as Shiva number-1.

This moment welcomed a fitting reaction from Arjun Kapoor where he hid his face while calling her a mess.
