Many Bollywood women seem to be Hollywood-bound.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have all done that while Sonam Kapoor is likely to fly over the Atlantic very soon, unless of course she takes the other route.
CINEWS wonders why Indian film journalists forget to mention Frieda Pinto who made a name in Hollywood before Deepika and Priyanka, in the same breadth as other stars. Is it because the Slumdog Millionaire star did not rise through the ranks of true Bollywood?
On an Instagram post, Sonam has shared a screenshot of a news report exclusively confirming her project.
“Super duper chuffed to sign on with #unitedtalentagency ! I know this is going to be an epic partnership!,” UTA is a California-based talent agency. Some of their internationally well-known clients have been Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Alicia Vikander, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.
The last time Sonam Kapoor appeared in an international project was on Coldplay’s music video, Hymn For The Weekend where she was in the frame for merely a few seconds.
Her father, Anil Kapoor has worked in well known Hollywood projects like Slumdog Millionaire, Brad Bird’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and even did a cameo in the popular American television series The Simpsons.
Sonam Kapoor had made her debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, Saawariya, alongside Ranbir Kapoor in 2007.
Though she has appeared in lot of films earlier it was her performance in Neerja that showed her true potential. – CINEWS
