Pri­ori­tis­ing good work over fame

Post - - BOLLY / KOLLY -

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
