Sonam choose acting over modelling

Mumbai: Actress Sonam Kapoor said no to modelling offer by leading photographer and producer Atul Kasbekar to continue with her acting. The actress made her debut in the Bollywood industry with Ranbir Kapoor in 2007 with “Saawariya”.

Sonam stated during an appearance on an episode of “Vogue’s BFF’s” that: “I remember it was at a party which was for a cosmetic company, in 2006, I think. This tall person walks up to me — which is Atul — and he’s like, ‘Oh my God, do you want to model?’ I had just started acting in ‘Saawariya’. And I wasn’t out at all, publicly, because my parents had kept me away from the press and the paps (paparazzi) and everything.”

The actress further added on “One of my friends was a make-up artist, so I just went for her party, just for fun! Nobody took pictures of me at that point. And I have Atul walking up to me and saying, ‘Do you want to model?’ So I told him, ‘I am already acting in a movie!’.”

The “Khubsoorat” star is known to be the trendsetter and is a fashion sensation in the industry and she made place for herself in the hearts of the viewers with films like “Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo”, “Raanjhana”, “Neerja” and “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”.
