Sonam at Har­vard school’s panel talk

She played a fear­less flight at­ten­dant in her award­win­ning role as Neerja. In real life, too, Sonam Kapoor has al­ways spo­ken her mind on a num­ber of sub­jects — be it women’s is­sues, the film in­dus­try, or so­ci­ety in gen­eral.

Now, we’ve learned that Sonam is set to join the Har­vard Busi­ness School panel for a spe­cial talk. “HBS’ In­dia re­search cen­tre — as part of the Best of Har­vard in South Asia plat­form — con­ducts lec­tures, round­tables, panel dis­cus­sions and de­bates rel­e­vant from an In­dian per­spec­tive,” says an in­sider.

In a cou­ple of days, HBS will launch a Gen­der Se­ries, in which the first conversation will be with the school’s pro­fes­sor Ge­of­frey G. Jones on the topic Beauty: Lim­it­ing or Lib­er­at­ing. For this, the in­sti­tu­tion has in­vited Sonam to join the panel. She will share in­sights and par­tic­i­pate in the de­bate, too. The event will take place at a south Mum­bai ho­tel.

“Sonam will talk about the pit­falls and chal­lenges as­so­ci­ated with no­tions of beauty and the as­pi­ra­tion to look ‘beau­ti­ful,’” says the in­sider. Last year, Sonam broke the In­ter­net with her open let­ter ti­tled: ‘I didn’t wake up like this’, which busted the myth of flaw­less­ness.

When con­tacted, an ex­cited Sonam says, “I look for­ward to join­ing the conversation con­ducted by HBS. I think the sub­ject is very rel­e­vant to the times that we live in.”
