Sonam Kapoor, the fashionista admires the ethereal, elusive, dynamic Rekha. Sonam has always admired Rekha and has taken inspiration from her. Now Sonam gets a chance to step into the large shoes of Rekha in the remake of the 1980’s classic Khoobsurat.
Sonam started her career with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya which was not exactly a blockbuster. Sonam’s fashion sense has been the talking point of her career. Rekha on the other hand is known for her metamorphosis into the glamorous swan, and her histrionics on screen. The evergreen Rekha is still the diva she was a couple of decades ago.
Rekha has been admired for her acting prowess in films like Khoon Bhari Maang, Silsila and Umrao jaan. Sonam Kapoor has recently started her career and has done films like Raanjhana, I Hate Luv Story and Aisha.
Belonging to different generations and different eras of film making but a common thread binds the two divas together.
Said Sonam, “I am a big fan of Rekhaji. She has always been my inspiration throughout my career. She’s an inspiration for every actress in the industry. I had watched Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Khoobsurat and other films as well.”
We wish Sonam Kapoor every success in her new endeavour.
