Mani Ratnam to salvage Sonam Kapoorís career?
It is no surprise that Sonam Kapoor, daughter of Anil Kapoor who started out doing films in the south, is inundated with film offers from the same industry. But for a long time the Mausam babe kept turning it down. Rumour has it that Ghajini director AR Murugadoss was keen to cast her sometime back. Anyway, Sonam has finally bitten the bait of south films. Maverick director Mani Ratnam has cast her in his forthcoming film, tentatively titled Pookadai. Initially, the Kapoor babe was hesitant to be a part of the Tamil film as it starred a newcomer Ė popular actor Karthikís son Gautham Ė as the leading man. But according to sources, Sonamís dad, who played the lead role in Ratnamís first film Pallavi Anupallavi convinced his baby to do it. Daddyís darling daughter couldnít disobey his command. And we are glad she didnít.
At this point, Sonam has firmly entrenched her name as a dazzler every time she struts in those stylish garbs on the red carpet, but is yet to make a mark as an actor. So, who better than Mani Ratnam to help her do it? Remember Abhishek Bachchan, who was once widely criticised for his mediocre acting skills, received his first critical acclaim for Mani sirís Guru? Maybe thatís what Anil had in mind when he pushed his child to say Ďyesí to the project. Letís hope the fatherís wish comes true and Sonam dazzles on the big screen too!...being a human...
