Her debut movie is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and a few
days before its release she is offered a movie directed by Rakeysh
Omprakash Mehra opposite Abhishek Bachchan. Seems like a distant
dream! But thats what has happened with Sonam Kapoor. Just days
before the release of Bhansali directed Saawariya where
she stars opposite Ranbir Kapoor, the actress will play the lead in
Mehra's upcoming movie Delhi 6.
The script for the movie was narrated to Sonam and her dad Anil
Kapoor and the actress committed on it immediately. The actress is
believed to have been promised a handsome pay for the movie.
Incidentally this is the first movie for Rakeysh after the
tremendous success of Rang De Basanti.
The director took a lot of time in finalizing the cast and after
considering Hritik Roshan, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor and Siddarth
he finally settled for Abhishek Bachchan. It is being rumoured that
Kareena was considered for the female lead but the idea was dropped
once Abhishek was cast in for the role. For now Sonam Kapoor can
have no complaints with life.
