MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor seems to be flying high on the success of her most recent films, ‘Raanjhanaa’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, for she recently auditioned for a Hollywood film franchise!
Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor is already an established name in the Hollywood space, and now Sonam seems to be following in her father’s footsteps.
With the success of her last 2 films, Sonam has landed a plum audition for the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series, which stars Hollywood A-lister Johnny Depp.
Reportedly, the makers of the ‘Pirates’ instalments reached out to an Indian celebrity management company, who reached out to Anil Kapoor. Kapoor then convinced his daughter to try out for the part.
Sonam’s audition was taken at a suburban Mumbai studio, last week. A source revealed: “Sonam breezed through the auditions. The outcome is awaited.”
Besides the audition, Sonam even had an in-depth video conference with Studio representatives of Walt Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer (who is the producer of the ‘Pirates’ films) and Hollywood casting agents.
Sonam auditioned for a plum role in the fifth instalment of the series, which will reportedly go into production sometime in 2015. It is not clear whether Sonam has auditioned for the lead role.
