Mani Ratnam to salvage Sonam Kapoor’s career?

For a long time the Mausam babe resisted south Indian film offers. However, when Raavan filmmaker Mani Ratnam went to her, she couldn’t say ‘no’. And wethinks she did a wise thing!

It is no surprise that Sonam Kapoor, daughter of Anil Kapoor who started out doing films in the south, is inundated with film offers from the same industry. But for a long time the Mausam babe kept turning it down. Rumour has it that Ghajini director AR Murugadoss was keen to cast her sometime back. Anyway, Sonam has finally bitten the bait of south films. Maverick director Mani Ratnam has cast her in his forthcoming film, tentatively titled Pookadai. Initially, the Kapoor babe was hesitant to be a part of the Tamil film as it starred a newcomer – popular actor Karthik’s son Gautham – as the leading man. But according to sources, Sonam’s dad, who played the lead role in Ratnam’s first film Pallavi Anupallavi convinced his baby to do it. Daddy’s darling daughter couldn’t disobey his command. And we are glad she didn’t. At this point, Sonam has firmly entrenched her name as a dazzler every time she struts in those stylish garbs on the red carpet, but is yet to make a mark as an actor. So, who better than Mani Ratnam to help her do it? Remember Abhishek Bachchan, who was once widely criticised for his mediocre acting skills, received his first critical acclaim for Mani sir’s Guru? Maybe that’s what Anil had in mind when he pushed his child to say ‘yes’ to the project. Let’s hope the father’s wish comes true and Sonam dazzles on the big screen too!
