Sonam Kapoor, daughter of star hero Anil Kapoor, gave a grand entry into the film industry with her film Saawariya.
It was long ago, but even after several years, Sonam could not make a mark for her in the industry and her career has been going through bumpy rides.
Even after doing skin-shows, she has not been getting any good break in the industry. But for the tag of being Anil Kapoor’s daughter, she would have faded out by now.
After a long time, Sonam could at last get a big hit with “Neerja” which was based on a real-life story of an airhostess.
The film got rave reviews from critics and Sonam got a lot of appreciation for doing complete justice to her role. Yet, she could not get big offers subsequently, though everybody that her career would peak after Neerja. And Bollywood continues to ignore her.
In a recent interview, Sonia felt that most of the heroes in Bollywood were close friends of her father and they treat her as daughter; and perhaps, that was the reason why she was not getting good offers.
Against this backdrop, Sonam got a bumper offer from South. Hero-cum-producer Dhanush is giving her a chance as heroine beside him in the film to be directed by his sister-in-law. In the past, Dhanush had acted with Sonam in Hindi film Ranjhaana.
Needless to say, acting in south is definitely a big break for Soniam. It remains to be seen, whether Sonam will shine at least in South!
