After a long time we hear the Mausam actor has signed her next film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. But it is the only film she has on her plate. And we wonder why!
Unlike the current breed of actors, Sonam Kapoor has been extremely slow in taking up new films. For example, Deepika Padukone (Om Shanti Om) and Sonam (Sawaariya)’s first film released on the same day, yet, the model-turned-actor has more films in her kitty than the fashionista. Deepika has churned out 10 films, whereas Sonam has had only six releases. The Mausam actor may say she believes in quality over quantity, but we have our doubts. Barring Abbas Mastaan’s Players which releases in January 2012 and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag opposite Farhan Akhtar, there isn’t any film on her plate. So we are forced to think it’s due to her poor acting skills. Like it or not, Anil Kapoor’s daughter is famous for her fashion sense and not acting! Though it wasn’t like this always. Despite Sawaariya being a box-office debacle, everyone was pretty impressed with Sonam in her debut flick. Unfortunately she did not manage to live up to the positive buzz. Recently she was highly criticised for her monosyllabic performance in Mausam. So are filmmakers shying away from her and signing her contemporaries like Anushka Sharma, Deepika, Asin? Or does she prefer fashion over films? Let’s hope she proves us wrong with Milkha Singh. Luckily it is being made by a director she greatly admires. And we did see glimpses of talent in Delhi 6! So there is some hope for Sonam and she doesn’t mess it up again!
