After Celina Jaitley, it is fashionista Sonam Kapoor's turn to show her support for the LGBT community.

Welcoming New York's latest gay-marriage law, the actress joined in the celebration with New York based designer Prabal Gurung on twitter.

'Finally. Love conquers all. Gay Marriage Approved by New York Senate. Yay!!!' she tweeted.

In the meantime, she denied rumours of her starring in Kamal Haasan's Tamil movie Viswaroopam. 'Dudes and duddettes.. Have not been offered any film in tollywood. I would love to work with the above mentioned stalwarts but I aint so lucky,' she added.

Bipasha was amused when she realised Ameesha was wearing the same outfit. 

'Also last night a fellow actress landed up wearing the same dress in a diff color as me on d green carpet!It ws quite amusing even for me:) Anyways u can't stop the world frm buying d same things n keep a tab on all! So next time I'll plan my green carpet outfit in advance n nt pull out things frm my cupboard last min!' Bipasha tweeted.
