While 2018 was a year that be­longed to women power for more than one rea­son, it won’t be wrong to say that ac­tress Sonam Kapoor turned out to be the undis­puted fe­male star at the box of­fice. The way she el­bowed out her con­tem­po­raries and de­liv­ered the high­est open­ing num­bers for a fe­male star re­mains a mile­stone in her film ca­reer.

With hit films such as PadMan, Sanju and Veere Di

Wed­ding, Sonam emerged 2018’s most profitable fe­male star. Be­sides be­ing a part of films that ush­ered so­cial change, Sonam not only wit­nessed 2018’s best open­ing week num­bers to­talling 34,46,66,667, but also led to­tal week fig­ures to the tune of 50,77,66,667. A trade source says, “After win­ning a Na­tional award for her per­for­mance in Neerja , Sonam has es­tab­lished her­self as one of the most bank­able fe­male stars of her gen­er­a­tion. Neerja was the most profitable film of 2017 , while her films in 2018 Sanju, PadMan and Veere Di Wed­ding went on to draw com­bined box of­fice num­bers that were on par with some lead­ing male stars. Her choice of films have been smart both on the com­mer­cial front as well as rep­re­sent­ing the kind of films young In­dia wants to see on the big screen.”

Sonam is cur­rently shoot­ing for The Zoya Fac­tor and also pro­mot­ing her soon to be re­leased film, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. Hin­dus­tan Times
