Prioritising good work over fame
ACTRESS Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, pictured, who has completed a decade-long journey in the Hindi film industry, says she chooses good work over fame and stardom.
The daughter of actor-producer Anil Kapoor ventured into the world of filmmaking in 2005, as an assistant director for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie Black.
She made her acting debut two years later in Saawariya. Ever since her debut, she has featured in over a dozen films comprising commercially successful ones like Khoobsurat, Neerja and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Asked if she feels that stardom comes with a price tag, Sonam said: “I have never gone for fame or stardom. I have always gone for good work. So when you are not seeking something out, there is no price tag attached to it.”
Sonam has featured in films of a variety of genres, like romance, comedy, drama, biographical thrillers and biographical comedy-dramas among many others.
But she said it was never a conscious choice to do specific genres of films. – IANS
