Hollywood has been ultimate dream of many young Bollywood actors but very few have been lucky to get the chance to fulfill their dreams. But the charming Saawariya girl Sonam Kapoor has proved to be very lucky in this case as the four-film-old actress has already got two offers from Hollywood within a span of six months.
The 25 year old bubbly Sonam has been able to fascinate the Hollywood actors with her performances. The elder daughter of Anil Kapoor, who has already wooed the Hollywood, is going to follow the path of her father probably.
According to a source, “Anil met Ben Stiller during his visit to LA. He was exchanging ideas with Ben regarding a production company, which they are planning to launch together. In this meeting, Anil informed Ben about his home production Aisha, which stars his elder daughter Sonam Kapoor”.
The source added, “Ben expressed his desire to see the reel of Aisha as he was then casting Kate’s role for his $30 million film for his production house Red Hour Films. The film directed by Reuben Fleischer stars Danny MacBride and Jesse Eisenberg, is titled 30 Minutes Or Less. After watching the reel, Ben sent an email to Anil Kapoor saying that Sonam was excellent and he wished to cast her in his movie”.
Confirming the news, Anil Kapoor’s business manager said, “It is true that Sonam has been offered the role in Ben’s 30 Minutes Or Less and we are trying to work out the dates for the same. She is now busy shooting for Mausam with Shahid Kapoor and Thank You with Akshay Kumar. Her tight schedule makes it impossible to take up the offer but we are still working it out”.
The next offer came to her doorstep just within a month of Anil Kapoor’s return to India. This time it was from Edoardo Ponti, son of Carlo Ponti and Sophia Loren, for his new project titled Das. He also wanted to cast Sonam in this film, which will be made in India.
In spite of receiving these Hollywood offers, the father daughter duo is keeping their focus straight as Sonam has other prior commitments to keep here in Bollywood.
