Sonam Kapoor is an actress, model that has impressed everyone with her glamorous roles and relatable characters. She performs any given role naturally and spontaneously which makes one forget you see a character. Kapoor has got a radiant smile that makes one feel joyful. Sonam is a queen of fashion and looks highly urbane.
The love story of Sonam and Anand is like a rom-com made in heaven. The story goes that she was being set up with a date by her friend, and Sonam was having a bad day. Anand was like the middle man in the situation, aka the wingman. He was trying to get Sonam interested in his friend.
However, she was just not interested in him. As Sonam recalls, the friend sounded too much like his brother with similar interests. It was an immediate buzzkill for her, but Anand was unique. He didn't have much familiarity with the Bollywood world and had no idea about Anil Kapoor being her father. As they say, opposites attract one another, and that couldn't be further from the truth.
The landmark movie that proved her acting chops is Neerja. The story of Pan Am Flight 73 is both harrowing for many but also inspiring for its bravery. Sonam Kapoor brought the spirit of Neerja alive and got the blessing from her late mother to play the part.
Kapoor even got a lot of long messages from the Co-pilot's daughters. She praised her performance and talked about the impact Neerja had on her father. Sonam Kapoor completely threw herself into the role and even got bruises during the process. Whatever one can say about Kapoor, the way she performed this character was indeed something special.
Sonam Kapoor, in many ways, is not just an actress, model but she's a complete brand in her own right. She's been at the fashion game for a long time and has her own brand Rheson. She is also an entrepreneur who has been actively investing in startups. Kapoor has been financially independent from the age of 17 and considers herself a conservative investor. She likes to play it safe and invest in categories that she finds most exciting or unique. One of her favourite investment areas is in the Artworld buying up works of artists like Shibu Natesan and Manjit Bawa. Sonam Kapoor is one of the savviest actresses in the industry and is more intelligent than we give her credit for.
Aisha is a movie that, while failed at the box office, sparked the new glamour avatar of Sonam. Abhay Deol criticised the film and felt that it didn't have any substance to it. Too much focus was placed on the clothes, and they did not give his character attention.
He decided to distance himself from the film and not promote the movie altogether. It sparked a massive beef with snipes coming from both sides of the aisle. Sonam commented, "I am shocked. I can't believe that Abhay would make such statements."
At Koffee with Karan, Anil Kapoor openly slammed Abhay Deol by saying he needed help in every way.
Do you think it is just a bratty actor begging for attention as his role was cut, or are his criticisms correct?
Every time the discussion of nepotism is raised, it seems like Sonam Kapoor is on fire. It is strange because so many actors have nepotistic roots, yet she is seen as the problem case. We think that not enough to appreciate her efforts to make a change in cinema.
Movies like Veere Di Wedding, Aisha brought the girl chic genre to the forefront. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga openly discussed gay love between two girls in India. Yes, she might not be right all the time or fail to communicate her thoughts most elegantly. One cannot deny that her heart is in the right place and has tried to change movies.
Sonam Kapoor is one of the most stunning actresses in the industry. She is just slaying it and is living a blissful life being married. Kapoor is one of our faves and gives us the confidence to dress to kill.
