Sonam Kapoor to play Akshay Kumar’s love interest

Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam Kapoor has been chosen by director Anees Bazmee to play Akshay Kumar’s love interest. Debuted with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’, Sonam Kapoor showed her acting talent in ‘Delhi 6’. Anees Bazmee’s new film will be a comedy titled, ‘Thank You’. Though none of the two films of Sonam rocked at the box office, Anees was impressed with Sonam’s performance.

This is the first time that Sonam will try her hand in comedy. Confirming her presence in the film, Sonam said, “I have signed a film titled ‘Thank You’ which will be directed by Anees Bazmee. I am being paired opposite Akshay Kumar. Thank You is being produced by UTV.”

The actress will also be seen in Anil Kapoor’s ‘Aisha’, which is based on Jane Austen's ‘Emma’ opposite Abhay Deol and Pankaj Kapur’s ‘Mausam’ opposite Shahid Kapur.
