Why Sonam Kapoor Ahuja Lied To Enter Bollywood?

Sonam K Ahuja debuted in Bollywood with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya alongside Ranbir Kapoor. However, in an interview with ZEE ETC Bollywood, she had stated that she lied to enter the industry. Her parents were reluctant about her film career. She was only 17 years old when she expressed her dream to work in film industry to them. So, she convinced them by lying that she wished to work as a writer in Sanjay Leela Bhansali productions. When she visited Bhansali’s office she didn’t mention about being Anil Kapoor’s 17-year-old daughter and asked to be his AD. This upset Sanjay when he learned the truth, but eventually he let that slide away. Sonam mentions herself to be a self-made star as her parents didn’t refer her name to anyone.

However, Bhansali would not have casted any random girl as his lead if she had lied to get in films. He would not even provide any opportunity to some random outsider in that case. Though Sonam mentions that Sanjay had advised her to work in films even before he knew about her father, maybe SLB casted her as a lead because she was from the Kapoor family. She has been praised for her acting in films like Neerja and Khoobsurat, but do you think she is a self-made star?
