Salman was reluctant to do Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with Sonam



Sonam Kapoor, most of the time, is rejected due to her famous father, Anil Kapoor, because many people feel weird to romance her.

Recently Sonam has revealed in an interview “I lost out on a lot of films because of my father. Salman Khan didn’t want to do Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with me. He was like, ‘Anil Kapoor has been my close friend. How can I romance his daughter?’ It was really difficult and weird,”

She further disclosed another incident, “Farah Khan is one of my mother’s best friends yet I haven’t done a Farah film, nor does she look at me as an actress she’d want to cast. It’s a different, non-work relationship.”

She furthermore told that the top actresses in Bollywood do not approach from the film society.

She told “The top heroines today — Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra — are both women who aren’t from the industry. And are you telling me that Alia Bhatt is where she is due to her family and not due to her talent? Favoritism exists all over but that doesn’t make the voyage any easier.”

Sonam further elaborated that why the silver spoon upbringing doesn’t aid in the getting movies, she said “It is a business and nobody will spend crores in the movie’s production and another few in just marketing as you are associated with someone… and totally talent-less. It just doesn’t tote up.”


The actress further revealed that “You audition. I auditioned for Saawariya together with Shivani Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, and Deepika Padukone. There is a procedure and we are all equivalent when we undergo it. I even auditioned for Delhi 6 and ventures for Yash Raj Films. I didn’t just awaken one day to have all these movies in my register!”

The Khubsurat actress considers that in spite of what the narrative is, it will for all the time is pointed out in a manner that profits the media.

She further added “It doesn’t suit the admired account, which is that of an industry girl having it easy. This version approximately gainsays it. At the end of the day, people, involving journalists, are biased and believe in what they decide to believe in,”

She is that fortunate actor who has not been connected to any scandals, but she has her PR team to thank for that, Sonam told, “I cannot envisage life without them, we have been with each other since I began out as an actor. They know everything. And they are good at controlling it as very hardly does something regarding my personal life come out in the papers.”

But that is as well due to that she lives a quite scandal-free life.

She said “That is factual. I have never dated anybody from the industry, never had a scandalous affair with someone, I shun parties and I cannot touch alcohol. I’m exactly bent in my bed with a book by 10 in the night approximately every other day.”
