|Sonam with her father, Anil Kapoor.|
My "obsession" started when Sonam's debut movie, Saawariya came out. Sonam made her movie debut alongside her co-star Ranbir Kapoor. Usually, I could care less about a movie with two newcomers in it. But when I saw Sonam, for the first time in a really long time, I saw a beautiful Bollywood actress. After the era of Madhuri Dixit, I didn't really find anyone beautiful per say. Yeah, there were a lot of pretty actresses, but they just didn't have that same class as actresses before their time. With Sonam, I saw that class. She didn't have to wear tiny clothes in her first movie to portray her beauty. It was all in her face and eyes.
Then I watched some television interviews with her. Unlike all other actresses, Sonam is blunt and says it like it is. She admits that she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but her parents always kept her grounded. When she talks, she doesn't think about what others will say or whose feelings she might hurt. She doesn't say anything with bad intentions. And the one thing I like the most about her is that she isn't diplomatic, which is my pet peeve when it comes to celebrities.
As Sonam made more public appearances, I noticed something else. She didn't dress like most Bollywood actresses. She actually had a sense of style. For the first time, I fell in love with the wardrobe of a Bollywood actress. I would say Sonam's style is classy vintage. Her style is inspiring and relatable.
I would suggest to you to check out one of her movies just to get a sense of who she is. And look out for her forthcoming movie, Mausam with Shahid Kapoor releasing on Friday, which I am sure will be a blockbuster because the two make a darn cute couple.
Is there any star or celebrity that inspires you? Anyone that you are obsessed with and claim to be their biggest fan?
