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
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.
