Sonam Kapoor will be making her acting debut on November 9 in the film Saawariya. Sonam is the daughter of Anil Kapoor and has been launched by one of the best director’s in bollywood, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However even before her debut film has released, Sonam has already bagged her second film, Rakeysh Mehra’s Dilli 6 opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
Sonam will be doing her second film with another talented director Rakeysh Mehra who has given the super hit film Rang De Basanti. Sonam will also be paired opposite Abhishek Bachchan who has already been finalized for the main lead in Dilli 6. Naturally Sonam is excited as at such a young stage in her career, she is already getting to work with some of the best directors as well as actors. After Rang De Basanti, Rakeysh Mehra has decided to make Dilli 6, so no doubt there are huge expectations of another super hit film. Rakeysh Mehra has earlier cast several others for the male lead in the film. Hrithik, Akshay, Siddharth etc were considered for the role, but later Rakeysh reverted back to casting Abhishek in his film.
For the female lead in the film, Rakeysh had considered Kareena Kapoor and even Soha Ali Khan. However he finally has cast newcomer Sonam Kapoor. It will be interesting to see the fresh pairing of Abhishek and Sonam Kapoor on-screen. Currently Sonam is extremely nervous and excited for her huge debut in Saawariya, but nonetheless she is also excited to be working with a director like Rakeysh who has given the film industry one of the biggest hits, Rang De Basanti. Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor is extremely happy for his daughter and says “I am delighted as a father, though I have no role to play in this as such. But as an actor I should be jealous. Her first film is with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the next is with Rakeysh Mehra. What more an actor can possible want? I am very happy for her.”
