Sonam Kapoor is an Indian film actress who appears in Bollywood films. Sonam made her acting debut in 2007 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya opposite Ranbir Kapoor and subsequently featured in the offbeat drama Delhi-6 (2009).
She earned her first commercial success with the romantic comedy I Hate Luv Storys (2010) and followed with such films as Aisha (2010) and Thank You (2011).
Kapoor's first release in 2011, Thank You was a critical failure, although the film was an average grosser at the box office.
The same year, she made an appearance at the 64th Cannes Film Festival representing L'Oréal, the brand she endorses in India.
Her second film of the year was the romance film Mausam, in which she and co-star Shahid Kapoor had four different looks representing each of the four seasons. The film received mixed reviews and was a failure at the box office.
However, Sonam's performance was appreciated by most prominent critics. Taran Adarsh commented, "For Sonam, MAUSAM will prove to be a turning point in her career. Astonishing -- that would be the right word to describe her work this time around. The confidence with which she handles the distinct characterization speaks volumes".
Her first release of 2012 is Players, a remake of The Italian Job, alongside Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
The film received mixed to negative reviews and didn't do well at the box office. At the moment, she's busy shooting for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag with Farhan Akhtar and Raanjhnaa with Dhanush of " Kolaveri Di" fame.
