Sonam Kapoor entered the Hindi film industry as a leading actress with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya alongside Ranbir Kapoor. On Monday, Sonam completed 13 years in the industry with Saawariya. However, it was during the promotions of The Zoya Factor that the actress opened up on how the ace filmmaker was upset upon learning that she was the daughter of Anil Kapoor.
In an interview, Sonam revealed that during her college time, Sonam had revealed to her parents that she wished to work with Sanjay. Her mother, Sunita Kapoor’s reaction was a resounding ‘No’ after which she tried to convince her father. He, however, had forgotten that Sanjay had assisted Vidhu Vinod Chopra in his film, 1942: A Love Story. Anil was also skeptical because he did not know Sanjay personally. However, Sonam convinced her father by saying that Ranbir is assisting Sanjay as well.
She went on to reveal that Sanjay did not know about her being the daughter of the evergreen star. She reasoned her parent’s decision to keep their kids away from the media glare for the same. “The first day I went to his office to meet him, I was sitting at a table. He just came back from church and he looked at me and he is like, ‘You have come for acting? Are you here for an audition?’ I said, ‘No, sir, I have come to be an assistant.’ He said, ‘But you should act, haan.’ I said okay,” Sonam had told ETC Bollywood.
Later on, when the Padmaavat helmer had learned that identity, she revealed he was very upset. “Then he found out who my father was and he got very upset. He was like, ‘Are you allowed…?’ I was 17 years old and bohot jhooth-voot bol ke (after lying a lot) I was there. But I got it on my own,” the I Hate Luv Storys actor revealed.
