Sonam’s ticket to Hollywood


After Anil Kapoor made his Hollywood debut with Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire (2008), it’s now his daughter Sonam’s turn to be wooed by LA.

The spunky actor, who will next be seen in her home production, Aisha says she’s received two big-budget Hollywood offers, and is trying to work her dates out to accommodate them.

Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor“I’m extremely excited about them, but at the moment, I’m not sure about the dates. I am committed to Pankaj Kapur’s Mausam for the next 100 days, and both the Hollywood projects require time.

These are big films, so I have my fingers crossed,” says Sonam. The two projects include Ben Stiller’s production — 30 Minutes Or Less — opposite Zombieland actor Jesse Eisenberg, and Sophia Loren’s son Edoardo Ponti’s film, Das.

While Ponti offered the film to Sonam directly, Stiller had asked the father for his daughter’s showreel, after the two met for a possible collaboration.

Ready to audition

Sonam reveals, “I have no qualms in even auditioning for movies. For Ben Stiller’s movie, I had created a showreel of my work from Saawariya (2007) and Delhi 6 (2009) and sent it across.

But he loved the showreel so much that he offered me the film without an audition.”It’s been a good month for the actor, since this news comes close on the heel of the box office success of I Hate Luv Storys, Sonam’s film opposite Imran Khan that released earlier this month.

Neck deep in work

But she plays it down, “I have missed the reactions in India, since I’ve been shooting for Mausam continuously in Scotland. Besides, hits or flops are just tags people give. I’m glad that they liked my film. I’m in my own bubble here.”

In fact, the actor is so neck deep in work that she won’t be able to promote Aisha for more than 10 days, starting next week, when she comes down to India. “Aisha is as important to me as Mausam is, so I can’t choose one over the other, right?” she says explaining her dilemma.

But Sonam, who is a huge fan of Jane Austen’s novels and knows them “by heart,” says she is especially excited about Aisha since she identifies with Emma, the book on which the film is based on.

“Jane Austen once said that no one would like Emma as much as she does, since she’s the most real, naïve and flawed amongst all her characters. And I relate to that too — like Emma, I’m also a girl trying to be a woman.

Though Aisha comes of age by the end of the movie, I think it’ll still take me a couple more years!” she giggles.
