Sonam Kapoor who is more famous for her bold fashion choices and statements than her movies turns 30 today. While the actress has been snapchatting all her gifts and birthday festivities, here is a lowdown of her journey in Bollywood.
Sonam is the eldest daughter of Bollywood’s jhakkas actor, Anil Kapoor, and wife, Sunita Kapoor. Sonam studied at Arya Vidya Mandir, Juhu and enrolled in United World College of South East Asia for her International Baccalaureate. She also studied Political Science and Economics from Bombay University. As a child, Sonam started learning Kathak and has been trained in dance form for twelve years.
While Sonam started her career being behind the camera with Ranbir Kapoor for Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Black in 2005, destiny had other plans for her. In 2007, she made her big debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Though the movie was a commercial dud, both the actors came into limelight and received much public adulation and love.
Post-2007, Sonam starred in many movies like Delhi 6, I Hate Love Stories, Thank You, Aisha and Players. These movies were average grosser and did not rake much moolah at the box-office, but Sonam’s performance was very well received and appreciated.
Though Sonam's movies did not do well at the box office, she was busy creating waves on the style arena. She was labeled as a fashionista and a style diva for her sartorial dress choices and the confidence and elan with which she carried them off. It was also then that Sonam was appointed as the brand ambassador for L’oreal and became a Cannes red carpet regular.
Sonam has been very vocal about her opinions and has received as much flak as much love for the same. Be it calling out on someone for online bullying or standing up for LGBTQ rights, Sonam knows how to pick her fights.
Her recent films have proved that she is not only a pretty face but a bankable star as well. Be it her portrayal of deglam Zoya in Ranjhaana or her glamorous avatar of Rajkumari Maithili Devi with Salman in Sooraj Barjatiya directed Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo,she has finally proved her mettle. And with her most recent Neerja, the actress has only gone further and cemented her position in Bollywood. Sonam has also recently launched her very own app as a method to stay connected with all her fans.
Team Follo wishes the actress a very happy birthday and we hope to see more of her on the screen soon!
