Sonam Kapoor is undoubtedly one of the very finest actresses in the industry. Known for her great and unique fashion sense, her beauty is one that is also appreciated by fans both within and outside India. Steadily she has made her up for success. However ever since her debut, film 'Saawariya', directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, many have wondered why she has not been seen in any of his recent movies. The actress has since worked with filmmakers like R Balki, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, and Aanand L Rai. In 2017, Sonam Kapoor after having acquired so much of experience in the skill of acting became the National award-winning actress for her film Neerja. Her recent film Padman co-starring Akshay Kumar was, in fact, a hit. However, it has been 10 years since her debut in the Bollywood industry. Being launched by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, it is indeed surprising that she has not appeared in any of his films. As reported by a leading daily, when asked why this is what Sonam had to say.
I don’t think I am his kind of actor. Yes, I am eternally grateful to him for giving my debut but I don’t think I meet the requisites as an actor for the kind of movies, he makes. Though I am sure if he thinks I suited a particular role, he will cast me again.With his latest film Padmaavat, Sanjay has found great satisfaction in the actress Deepika Padukone and has been praising her for her talent and skills as an actress. As earlier reported, he got so impressed he gave her Rs. 500 for an amazing Jauhar act while on set. Well, one would not blame Sonam for saying she is not his kind of actress. Workwise, Sonam Kapoor is currently busy with Shelly Chopra Dhar’s directorial debut Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga!
