She may not have inherited the acting skills of her father nor had success in Bollywood as yet, but Sonam Kapoor has two major projects under her belt. What’s it with the star kid that makes producers sign her on?
Is it simply luck or her style quotient, for Ms Kapoor is definitely a hot favourite of the fashionistas. Just four years in Bollywood, and the actress has walked events with great attitude and panache, earning herself the title of the style icon, though she is still considered a struggler.
Says Sonam, “I think the expression is very scary and overwhelming. I just need to be a responsible adult, and a youth style icon. The aim is to not let myself get carried away by thinking ‘oh, I am so amazing’, but be someone who has great civic sense and is a good Indian.”
Still considered a struggler in Bollywood, in spite of starring in half a dozen films, Sonam’s last outing at the box office, ‘Players’, was a huge dud. But that seems to have little effect on her career.
Sonam has already signed two big projects. The first being ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, a biopic that will see her romancing Farhan Akhtar and the second is Rajkumar Santoshi’s untitled project opposite Abhay Deol.
Some people have style, others have luck, but Sonam seems to have both.
