Sonam Kapoor is one of the versatile actresses from the Hindi Film Industry. The beautiful actress who is known for her straightforward attitude is in the news every now and then. Sonam is one such actress who makes beauty statements and carries off fashion with style. She has come a far way in Bollywood and proved her acting with the versatile roles she has done in the films. It is not known to many that the Neerja star turned down a modeling offer to pursue a career in acting.
Sonam Kapoor recently revealed that she rejected a modeling offer by remarkable photographer-producer Atul Kasbekar and preferred acting over modeling. The actress recently made her presence on an episode of “Vogue BFFs”. Sonam on the episode said, “I remember it was at a party which was for a cosmetic company, in 2006, I think. This tall person walks up to me — which is Atul — and he’s like, ‘Oh my God, do you want to model?’ I had just started acting in ‘Saawariya’. And I wasn’t out at all, publicly, because my parents had kept me away from the press and the paps (paparazzi) and everything.”
“So nobody knew what I looked like or anything,” the Khoobsurat star added. “One of my friends was a make-up artist, so I just went for her party, just for fun! Nobody took pictures of me at that point. And I have Atul walking up to me and saying, ‘Do you want to model?’ So I told him, ‘I am already acting in a movie!’.”
To that, Kasbekar replied,”Ok, good…good.”
It seems that it was a wise decision by Sonam Kapoor. The actress debuted with Saawariya in 2007 has given many powerful performances in her career with films like Neerja, Raanjhanaa and many more. She will next be seen in Veere Di Wedding which also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan.
