Born in 1985, to the legendary Anil Kapoor; who starred in some beautiful Indian movies back in the 80’s and 90’s, and made it to Hollywood, towards the end of the last decade, by starring in the British Oscar winning film, Slumdog Millionaire (2008); Sonam Kapoor has managed to make a mark in the industry with her greatly unique dress sense. She’s not afraid to experiment, yet she doesn’t go Lady Gaga (though Lady Gaga’s unique, crazy, punk style dress sense is much appreciated too), by keeping her style elegant and a class apart. With elegance and sophistication, she joins the ranks of classy fashionistas of the past and present, such as Ingrid Bergman, Princess Gayatri Devi/Maharani Gayatri Devi, Jeanne Moreau, Audrey Hepburn, Simi Garewal, Parveen Babi, Rekha, Marion Cotillard, Miss Universe 1994 – Sushmita Sen and current Bollywood superstar – Priyanka Chopra, to name a few.
Sonam Kapoor FashionSo far as her acting career is concerned, I’ve only seen one movie of hers, Delhi-6 (2009) opposite Abhishek Bachchan. I actually found Delhi-6 really bad, close to being one of worst of ever ( I gave it a 2/10 rating), and a waste of time. But Sonam Kapoor was pretty good in her role, though there was nothing great in it. Now am more keen on checking out some of her better movies, like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) for example, which is based on a true story. Ironically, the near worse films ever, like Aks (2001) & Delhi-6, along with the moderately OK/watchable film like Rang De Basanti (2006), and one of best Hindi films of last year, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, were all directed by the same director, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. He’s only made four feature length films, and we can see his progress as a director. Sonam Kapoor has worked with him in two ventures so far.
Sonam Kapoor White SuitI have seen Sonam Kapoor on television, in many a talk shows/interviews. I found her quite bold, independent and yet just like a little adorable kid. Her personality has a blend of sophistication, classy fashionista and childlike innocence. She’s already proven herself as an elegant lady with a great dress sense. I would love to see her acting career progress as well. Wishing her all the best for a fashionable happy future.
