All about Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor, the new craze of Bollywood, is coming with her debut film Saawariya. This 22 year old beauty queen has already earned experience in movie direction as she worked as assistant director of Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the movie Black. Sonam Kapoor now seems to win the hearts of the moviegoers with her stunning beauty innocent look. It is expected that Sonam Kapoor possesses sheer talent of acting which would be her main advantage in this profession. With her open eyed, expressive appearance, Sonam Kapoor also has the ability to win her a place in the hearts of her fans. Her innocent look will make you feel to be a fan of this future star of Bollywood. It is true that she does not have any movie to her credit yet, however, Sonam Kapoor has already created much hype in the media because of being a child of a Bollywood star.

Born in a filmy family, Sonam Kapoor had all in her house to take inspiration to become a movie star. Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor is still one of the popular actors in Bollywood. Her two uncles Boney Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor are also involved in Bollywood successfully. Boney Kapoor is a producer whereas Sanjay Kapoor is an actor in Bollywood. Moreover, Bollywood’s legendary actress Sridevi is married to her uncle Boney Kapoor. Having such background, it would have been natural for Sonam Kapoor to have a desire to become a star in Bollywood. However, interestingly Sonam Kapoor never had it in her mind that she has the potential to become an actress. It was Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the popular director of Bollywood, who reminded her that she had talent to become an actress in Bollywood.

Sonam Kapoor could not even think of becoming a Bollywood actress despite having her killing smile, innocent appearance and gifted talent. What is more surprising is that Sonam Kapoor does not even have any institutional education in acting. She has recently said that whatever she knows about acting she has learnt it from Sanjay Leela Bhansali. While working for Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the movie Black, she learnt the insight of acting for the first time and it helped her while working in Saawariya. So, she has learnt acting in a natural way without attending any school.

Sonam Kapoor has a younger sister, Reha and a brother whom Sonam has recently said to be a brutally honest while giving his opinion. That is why, Sonam Kapoor is eagerly waiting for his opinion regarding the movie Saawariya. Saawariya will hit the screens world wide on 9 November, the same day another much awaiting movie Om Shanti Om of Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan will get released. It has been reported that Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have a hidden competition as both of them are debutant and their first movie is releasing under big banners though Sonam Kapoor has refused having any competition between them.

Childhood of Sonam Kapoor

Actually, I could not find enough information regarding the childhood of Sonam Kapoor. She was born in 9 June, 1985. She brought up with her parents but she studied abroad. Anil Kapoor has said that Sonam Kapoor was very lean in her childhood. However, she got the extra weight while studying in abroad. Reports have it that Sonam Kapoor has a great appetite for food.

In her childhood she had several wishes. Though she was a daughter of a popular Bollywood actor she does not have any desire to become an actress. There were several wishes in her mind. Initially, she wanted to become a teacher. However, after some days, Sonam Kapoor changed her wish and wanted to become a detective like Nancy Drew. Becoming a writer-director was also in her mind. Becoming an actress was something that she could not even dream off in her childhood. However, the reality is that Sonam Kapoor is now in the queue to become the next super star in Bollywood.

Sonam Kapoor’s Coming into Bollywood and Signing in Saawariya

Earlier I have mentioned earlier that Sonam Kapoor started as an assistant director of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It was for the movie ‘Black’ which was well-received by the critics. Ahead of the movie, one day Sonam Kapoor came to Sanjay Leela Bhansali with the request to give her the permission to work with him in the movie to get the basics of movie direction. I do not know if Sanjay could instantly realize the talent of Sonam Kapoor. However, he gave her the permission to work with him in the move Black. During the shooting of Black, one day Sanjay Leela Bhansali came up with the proposal to Sonam Kapoor to act in Saawariya. However, it came as a big surprise for Sonam Kapoor as she was about 90 kilos then. Immediately, Sonam Kapoor stared working hard to knock down her extra fats. With the help of her fitness freak mother Sunita kapoor, Sonam struggle hard and lost 30 kilos within few months.

When asked why he has taken two newcomers in the same movie, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said that he was feeling to take a challenge for himself working with the newcomers as he had earlier worked with some stars of the industry including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Salman Khan etc. Regarding Sonam Kapoor, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has said that Sonam Kapoor is a combination of Waheeda Rehmanji and Rekha. It seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has realized the potential of Sonam Kapoor as an actress. However, Anil Kapoor is not not overexcited with her daughter and has recently said in an interview that Sonam has to go a long way still now.

Saawariya is a film said to be timeless as one can not make it relate to any point of time in the history. Viewers will get to experience the touch of art in each and every sides of the movie. The lavish sets, unique music number are enough to impress the moviegoers. The story of Saawariya is based on a short story of Fyodor Dostoevsky titled ‘White Nights.’ What is more siognificant is that Saawariya is the first Bollywood movie till date which has been produced by a Hollywood production house. The movie will be released under the banner of Sony Pictures. So, it seems that Saawariya and its actors have achieved much media attention over the last few months. The movie has been a hit even before its release. Sonam Kapoor is really very lucky that she is getting into Bollywood with such a movie like Saawariya.

As far as the promo of Saawariya is concerned, Sonam Kapoor showed brilliant performance in her debut movie. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Saawariya is a love story where a boy named Raj and a girl named Sakina found eternal love for each other. With a budget of about RS 30 crore, Sanjay Leela Bhansali took the lavish project of Saawariya where almost all of the scenes of the movie have been shot in misty night light. With lots of lights the environment was artificially created in the movie studio and you must be surprised to see the sets of the movie. The male lead role, Raj came from a Hindu family whereas Sakina is Muslim by religion. However, the directors and actors of the movie have confirmed it that the movie will not be a typical Hindu-Muslim movie.

Raj reaches at a picture like town where he meets Sakina. The town is really like a picture where you can see mountains three and many other things which will make you realize that it is a fantasy world where two souls have found their love for each other. You will find all ingredients to feel that Saawariya is a unique love story compared to other love stories of Bollywood. Lotuses, lake, boat, lights, stars in the sky- above all a mystic nightly environment are portrayed in the movie.

Monty Sharma as a composer in his debut film has stunned the Bollywood fans with his exceptionally composed songs. Recently, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said that Monty is now raked just after A.R. Rahman in the Bollywood industry as a composer. The music tracks of the movie suit the themes of the film very well.

Jab We Met Review: From Different Websites

Much hyped Bollywood movie, Jab We Met has hit the screens today and got average response from the moviegoers. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Jab We Met has been released in 15 countries across the world. Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor play the lead roles of the movie. However, the break of Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor could not make it bigger in the opening day though it was earlier thought of. Jab We Met has done well in the first day but it is not so satisfactory.

However, Jab We Met has done very well compared to the other releases of this week. Anurag Kashyap’s No Smoking has come to closer in teems of competition with Jab We Met. At the evening shows of Jab We Met got comparatively good response than the previous shows.

Regarding the first day response of Jab We Met, Ibosnetwork reported:

The opening day bookings for Jab We Met is hovering at around 30% on limited screenings. That means, it will have to depend on word of mouth to generate large collections. (update: The film's collections did show an upward tick by Friday evening with Saturday bookings at 60%). The duo's previous films included Fida, 36 China Town, and Chup Chup Ke.
John Abraham & Ayesha Takia starrer No Smoking doesn't seem set to smoke out the box office either. Its advance was lagging behind Jab We Met at around 20% on similarly low volume screenings.

Though the movie could not work well expectedly in the first day, Jab We Met got huge response from the moviegoers. In a whole, Bollywood fans liked the movie for its story as well as the performance of the two leading actors. No matter, even if the movie does not generate huge income for the producers and director Imtaiz Ali because almost everybody has raised their voice while praising Imtiaz Ali for his excellent performance. The music numbers also attracted the fans and were said to be well-suit with the story and environment.

In the first place, the movie based on a love story portraying two strangers in a journey to love has crossed the mind of the fans. Though it is said that the movie is a mixture of a number of Bollywood and Hollywood films, Jab We Met has something different in its story and in story telling. So, the movie has all the qualities to stand by its own.

Indiafm reported:

Frankly, the story isn't new. It has traces of the Abhishek - Ash starrer DHAAI AKSHAR PREM KE [2000; which, in turn, was inspired by A WALK IN THE CLOUDS] and Govinda - Urmila starrer KUNWARA [2000; which, in turn, was a remake of a Telugu film BHAVANAGARU BHAGUNNARA], but director Imtiaz Ali's execution of the subject takes it to another level altogether.
To sum up, JAB WE MET is as refreshing as an ice-cold watermelon juice in scorching heat. Imtiaz Ali's expert storytelling coupled with Shahid and Kareena's sparkling performances make this film a must-watch!

So, no doubt, Imtiaz Ali could successfully present the story to the fans with the right environment. However, the two protagonists Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor have also impressed with their much expressive performances. Almost everyone has expressed their praise for the performance of Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. They have recently got separated from each other. However, it seems they must rethink about their relationship as both of them are getting huge positive responses from both the movie fans as well as from the critics.

Rediff reported:

Though Kareena is loud at times, she is a treat to watch -- funny and full of life. She gets to mouth hilarious lines like, 'Bachpan se mujhe shaadi karne ka bahut shauk tha.'
Shahid, on other hand, acts composed and provides a perfect foil to the Kareena's bubbly character.

For both Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor there are many more praises. Indicating their excellent performances the reports said that the two could suit the roles and make the roles alive. Some even have said that Shahid has showed his best performance in Jab We Met. Indiafm reported that the movie would be a turning point in the career of Kareena Kapoor. Moreover, writer also compared Kareena Kapoor with the Kajol of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Pawan Malhotra and Dara Singh have also showed praiseworthy performances in the movie.

Merinews reported:

Shahid is wonderfully restrained and enacts his part with rare maturity. However, it is Kareena who with her spritely performance (though she is over the top, here and there, per chalta hai) is the star of the show. Her gym-toned figure shows on-screen and thankfully she looks much more presentable than her flabby Don days.

The music tracks of the movie were also earned a good response from the music lovers. In particular, “Mauja Hi Mauja” and Yeh Ishq Hai” have touched the fans. No doubt, the movie is expected to become a good. Many have praised the music tracks for having a close connection to the story of the movie. It is obvious that, Pritam has showed his talent once again and no doubt, the songs will help the movie to become successful in the box office.

Desicritics reported:

Decent Soundtrack - I totally dig the “Mauja Hi Mauja” number, even though it’s sung by that jungle beast Mika. Even “Yeh Ishq Hai” is quite hummable.
Capable Director - I thought Imtiaz Ali’s first release Socha Na Tha was a decent effort, so hopefully Jab We Met would only be better.

Shahid Kapoor has recently said that the songs of the movie will have a good response from the fans. Besides the songs, the person who was responsible for all of the success of Jab We Met is none but the director Imtiaz Ali. Jab We Met is the second movie of Imtiaz Ali as he got into Bollywood with her critically acclaimed Socha Na Tha that could not work well in the box office. Both the leading actors Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor have given all the credits to Imtiaz Ali for the success of the movie

Indiafm reported:

Imtiaz Ali deserves brownie points for handling the subject with such maturity. The fun-laden scenes are truly funny and the emotional ones make you moist-eyed. Striking the right balance between light and heavy moments is akin to walking on a tight rope and Imtiaz handles the two extremes with remarkable ease. An accomplished storyteller undoubtedly!

Jab We Met shot many of its scenes in various railway stations across the India. Imtaiz Ali came from Jamshedpur where train is the most popular everyday vehicle. So, Imtiaz Ali tried to introduce a train journey and the astounding railway stations in the movie. With the movie, Imtiaz Ali proves his talent once again. So, obviously Imtiaz Ali will get much inspiration to come up with many more movies for the fans of Bollywood.

Though the story of the movie has earned huge appreciation, there are some undecided questions over the story. It is true that those questions will not make any problem for the viewers to enjoy the films but the questions will remain constant.

Moneyinnews reported:

1) Why does Shahid’s girlfriend marry someone else? Why does his business have problems (which by the way becomes an overnight success when Shahid returns to Bombay)? No explanations offered.
2) How does Shahid find Anshuman whom he’s never met? Unexplained.
3) Both leads seem to have no friends since there never is a mention of even one. Really strange. Usually when in problems related to family everyone talks to their friends.

Anyway, Jab We Met is an excellent movie where the story is described in an impressive way with the help of right environment and impressive acting of the actors. The expressions and the body language of the actors and the dialogues of the movie are enough to make you impress. Now, it is up to you; if you will watch the movie or not.

Jab We Met Cast and Crew Members Worked under Intense Cold as well as Unbearable Heat

Jab We Met is coming to the screen on Friday. Starring Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, the movie is based on romantic love story. Another specialty of Jab We Met is that the movie was shot in various locations of India and the cast and crew members had to cope up with new environment and different temperature which was not a easy task. For shooting a part of the movie, the whole Jab We Met team went to Rohtang Pass where they had to work during a sub zero temperature. The place is 13,400 above the sea level. So, upon the arrival of the whole team, director Imtiaz Ali called a day off so that the cast and crew members could assimilate with the new environment.

In contrast, Jab We Met team members had to bear scorching heat as well for the shake of shooting for the movie. No doubt, it was really problematic for the actors and crew members of the team to go under cold and heat within few days. A song was shot under the 50 degree Celsius in Mandava near Jaipur. Special air conditioned vans and busses were arranged for the actors and the team members. The team completed the four day shooting within two days because of such heat.

Deepika Padukoen vs Sonam Kapoor: Who will Win Rabir Kapoor?

Saawariya and Om Shanti Om, two big banner Diwali movies are now facing strong challenge from each other ahead of their release on the same day. Both the movies will hit the screens on 9 November 2007. Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor will make their Bollywood debut with the movie Saawariya. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the movie is based on an eternal love story placed in a fantasy world. Om Shanti Om will also come up with a model turned actress Deepika Padukone who will make her debut with this movie. Deepika Padukone plays the female lead role of the movie whereas Shah Rukh Khan plays the male lead character of Om Shanti Om.

Moreover, there are some other things that will make you realize that how much competition is there between the two movies. Both the movies have been produced by two big production houses. Om Shanti Om is being produced by Red Chillies Entertainment owned by Shah Rukh Khan who has fame for his promotional skill. On the other hand, Saawariya is making from a Hollywood production house Sony Pictures. This is the first time, a Bollywood movie is going to be released from a Hollywood production house. So, you can understand that both the movies are strong enough to make it big in the box office.


Deepika Padukone

To many, Saawariya and Om Shanti Om are going to be the most successful movies of this year. However, besides the competition between Saawariya and Om Shanti Om, there are some other competitions available around Saawariya and Om Shanti Om. Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor will be seen in the female lead roles of the two movies. Both the actresses are new in the industry. So, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will have to face some challenges from each other as both of them are considered to be the next star of Bollywood. So naturally there is a hidden competition between Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone though they are reluctant to admit it.

Deepika Padukone has already been a popular face as a super model in India. Moreover, she has earlier acted in a Kannada movie titled Aishwarya. So, the proposal of Om Shanti Om could not come as a surprise to her. However, for Sonam Kapoor, it was a surprise when Sanjay Leela Bhansali asked Sonam Kapoor to play the female lead role of Saawariya. If the fame of Deepika Padukone as a super model is an advantage for her ahead of the release of Om Shanti Om then Sonam Kapoor also has some advantages to her credit. Sonam Kapoor was the assistant director of Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the movie Black. So, she must have acquired a good knowledge of acting from Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee. Moreover, she is from a illustrious Kapoor family. Sonam Kapoor has also earned much attention as a daughter of Anil Kapoor. So, you can understand that how much competition the two newcomer have in them ahead of their debut movie.

So far, I have talked about the professional competition between Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Now, let us come to the personal life competition between between them though much of them are rumor yet. The competition is reportedly for Ranbir Kapoor, the fourth generation of Kapoor family (no relation with Sonam Kapoor), who played the lead male character in Saawariya. It is almost known to all that Deepika Padukone has a romantic relationship with Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika Padukone even once talked about their relationship in the media. However, Ranbir’s parents did not want to make the relationship public thinking that it would have negative impact on the Ranbir’s career. Now, there is speculation in the media that Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor have been romantically involved to each other. That is why, it has been reported that Ranbir Kapoor has given up his relationship with Deepika Padukone.

Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor are childhood friends. So, if the rumors are considered to be true then the competition between Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor in professional life now will come to personal life as well. Anyway, everything is rumor still now. However, it is also true that many more rumors came true in the past in Bollywood. So, you should not become surprised if there is really something between Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor.

Now, ahead of the two aspiring movies of Bollywood, all are eagerly waiting to enjoy the battle. If the battle between Saawariya and Om Shanti Om is of outside then no doubt, the inside battle is now between Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor. Now, the question comes in is that if battle is for Ranbir Kapoor or for profession?

It is said that the 41 year old Bollywood star worked on his body as he felt threatened by the upcoming actors like Ranbir Kapoor and other muscle man actors like Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham etc. who often shows their body in the movies. However, Shah Rukh Kkhan strongly opposed the question saying that he made his six pack abs as it was needed for character of the movie.

Besides, some of them think that Shah Rukh Khan made his muscles just to attract the fnas for the movie. You know that the movie is produced by Red Chilies Entertainment owned by Shah Rukh Khan. So, he had to work hard on his body to make people interested about the movie. The success of Om Shanti Om is a big matter for Shah Rukh Khan as it is directly related to his own production house. So, ahead of the movie, Shah Rukh Khan is now busy with promotional activities of the movie.

It is difficult to say if Shah Rukh Khan had anyting in his mind that led him to make himself a muscle man. However, it seems that the movie is going to work very well in the box office even through Saawariya will throw a strong challenge for Om Shanti Om.

Neil Nitin Mukesh: The Next Hrithik Roshan


Bollywood is the place where stars are born or get forgotten. If you are from a famous family in the Bollywood industry then getting established is a bit easier. Many of the leading actors and actresses are from famous families of Bollywood. We have Abhishek Bachchan from Bachchan family, Kapoor family have supplied a lot of actors and actresses in the recent years. So, having a family is never a bad thing. Neil Nitin Mukesh is the grandson of famous singer Mukesh. Actually, Mukesh is a legend in Bollywood. His son also tried music but was not successful like Mukesh. Now, grandson Neil Nitin Mukesh is going to try in Bollywood; not in much but in acting.

Neil Nitin Mukesh has a physique and some people think that he looks a bit like Hrithik Roshan.

Ranbir Kapoor about Saawariya

Ranbir Kapoor has perhaps the best debut that any Bollywood can dream of. You know that his movie ‘Saawariys’ is coming to the screens on this Diwali in India. Diwali is the largest festival in India and that is why, the biggest blockbuster movies are released at that time. So, Ranbir Kapoor is really lucky that he has got the first movie in such a way. Saawariya has already created a lot of attention among the people and media. I have already visited the official website and I got impressed with the quality of the making of the movie. I liked the use of color and design and the whole movie has an artistic flavor in it. Of course, Ranbir Kapoor has to be in the heart of the acting not with the making of the movie. The credit of making of the movie goes to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is always famous of making quality movies. So, Ranbir Kapoor is really very lucky to get the opportunity to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Ranbir Kapoor recently gave an interview to Indiafm and there he talked about Saawariya. Here is an extract of the interview:

Saawariya is a dream come to true for any debutant. Do you think your dreams have come true with Saawariya?

Absolutely, my dream was to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. With that aim, I assisted him in the film Black and today my dream has come true.


According to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Saawariya is a simplistic young love story. Does that make Saawariya simply special?

Yes. It is a special film for me, for Sonam and for Sanjay. Since, it is our debut-film it is special for us as newcomers. Saawariya is like a baby for Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Saawariya is a fantastic film about an unknown time and a place never visited. But you can still identify with the characters, the time and the place.

The hype surrounding the film is huge and expectations from you are immense. What is going through your mind right now as we talk?

Right now I am a little blank. I am in a state of shock because there is so much happening so fast, and then I dreamt of all these things while growing up, about being an aspiring actor, my first film, my first fan, my first autograph, etc. But when all of this is happening right now in front of my eyes all of a sudden I am speechless. It is quite heart warming. You are right! The hype surrounding the film and its music, its actors and the director will always be there and I hope that when Saawariya releases, the hype sustains and people are not disappointed.

Ranbir Kapoor has got the perfect brake that he needs but much depends on how the viewers accept him in the movie. Sonam Kapoor is also acting in the movie and she is the lead actress in the movie. I have feeling that Sonam Kapoor is getting much media attention these days and people are comparing her with Deepika Padukone who is the lead actress of another Diwali movie Om Shanti Om. So, Ranbir Kapoor should try to make better relationship with the media and should ensure better coverage for himself. Do you agree?

Shahid Kapoor Looking Ahead for the Future

Shahid Kapoor is now in the media headlines for wrong reason. His name is coming again and again because of the break up of Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. Secondly, Kareena Kapoor is now supposed to be having a romantic relationship with Saif Ali Khan. So, this is a really a tough time for Shahid Kapoor and specially, his latest movie Jab We Met is going to hit the movie screens this Friday. Jab We Met is a story and the irony is that here Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor are the two lead performers. Shahid Kapoor had very good relationships with Kareena Kapoor for many months. Shahid Kapoor has lot of potential.

Recently he gave an interview to Indiatimes where he felt that he was the underdog. Here is an excerpt:

What's your state of mind right now?

How should it be? I'm up and about and all geared for my next release, Jab We Met . I've just returned from Toronto where I was shooting for Aziz uncle's film. We shot for 56 days out of the 60-day schedule. We're all pooped. But it was fun.

A lot of things happened while you were away. People were speculating about a break-up between you and Kareena. Were you dreading coming back to India and facing the media?

No, in fact I was looking forward to getting back. It was a long stint in Toronto. It felt like I'd lived a lifetime there. I was missing home, family and home food, and couldn't wait to actually get back here. Interacting with the media is fun, it usually is. So why should I shy away? Also, I know exactly what's happening in my life. I'm aware of my personal relationships, and have nothing to fret, for I'm not answerable to all and sundry."

May be Shahid Kapoor is right because he is now 26 and he ahs been in the Bollywood movies for quite sometimes. He got some success but it is not enough. Actually, I think that Shahid Kapoor has not got his due fame in Bollywood. Of course, he has got a lot of money and other things but yet he has not got enough recognition. Shahid Kapoor in the recent years has focused more on quality films. However, you know that in Bollywood there are very few quality films. So, Shahid Kapoor has to work hard and may be someday he can really add some movies that people will remember many years after he dies.
