DID YOU KNOW?
You've probably heard it a million times: People aren't always who they appear to be. Whether they're somebody you pass by on the daily, a friend you always talk to, or a celebrity everybody knows, there is always more to a story than what meets the eye. And this is something Sonam Kapoor has proven time and time again. Often regarded as just a pretty woman with a keen sense of taste in fashion, she keeps showing the world that she's more than just what people perceive her. Well, with a slew of Sonam Kopar movies under her belt, what's stopping her from reaching her goals? Indeed, one cannot deny that she has successfully forged a sterling path to stardom. But what a lot of people aren't aware of the fact that, like almost everyone in the industry, she also had humble beginnings.
Did you know that Sonam Kapoor once worked as a waitress at the age of 15? Yes, the award-winning Indian actress also had her fair share of struggles and hardships. It was her first-ever job. And although it was only for a week, she had to go through everything the job entails - the jeers and the demands of every customer - because she needed extra money to get by in Singapore while studying there. The daughter of well-renowned Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, she seems to have her future laid out to her. But no, having an acclaimed pedigree didn't give her a head start in life. In fact, Sonam admits that she has been independent since childhood. Since then, she has never taken money from her parents. Now that is what we call sheer independence.
