Sonam Kapoor made her debut in Bollywood in 2007. Then itself all the trade expert of Bollywood and literally everyone in the tinsel town talk highly of this upcoming actress. Sonam made her debut in Bollywood opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Saawariya, the film bombed badly at box office.
After that hyped debut the young lady somewhere down the line lost in bunch of mediocre roles and films. She was more in limelight for her Cannes appearance or Fashion statements. Yes, she was not in a rat race of No.1 in Bollywood, but at least acting in films was suppose to be her first professional love.
Sonam Kapoor after her much hyped debut Saawariya which bombed at box office, worked in few box office dudes in Delhi 6, Aisha, Thank You, Mausam, Players. Yes, she had 'I Hate Love Story' which was a plus film in trade, but other than that she had none to show off. Yes, her acting was liked in Aisha, but again it was a box office dude.
But everything is going to change for her with RAANJHANAA. Raanjhanaa released on 21 June, 2013 and after that Rest is History. Sonam character in the film 'Zoya' is praised by all in one breath. Be it critic, be it audience or be it die hard haters of her. What's more Raanjhanaa is performing very well in Theaters and heading towards Clean Hit status in coming days, which is more important then any critics review. Moreover there is a point to prove. Sonam showed to all with 'Zoya' character that how much she is serious and committed to being an actress. Give her roles she deserves and she will deliver.
Yes, post Raanjhanaa, belief is back that Sonam has still the fire inside to become big in Bollywood. Yes, there is belief among all that she is still the Next Best Thing in Bollywood.
What Cocktail did to Deepika Padukone in 2012, hope same phenomenon continues for Sonam with Raanjhanaa. Hope Sonam performance in Raanjhanaa is not a one film wonder. Hope she again performs to her best in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag which is slated for release on July 2013 and after that also. Hope we talk more about her acting prowess than her regular fashion & style statement or Cannes updates. There is one of thing to have talent, but to transform that into good performance is another thing. Plus, yes Box Office Success is important as that only shows the audience love for you after all.
Finally, dear Sonam Kapoor there are many die-hard fans of yours who are waiting for many more performance like 'Zoya' in coming years. Hope you will not disappoint us! Hope Raanjhanaa is just a start of the actor inside you!
