Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor

Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor has garnered immense appreciation for her role in Salman Khan’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. Recently the beauty shared a very shocking fact about her casting for the film. The Neerja actress revealed that Salman Khan did not want to do the film with her.

Sonam Kapoor said, “I lost out on a lot of films because of my father. Salman Khan didn’t want to do ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ with me. He was like, ‘Anil Kapoor has been my close friend. How can I romance his daughter?’ It was really difficult and weird.”

  • She further added that, “I had to face the brunt of being Anil Kapoor’s daughter. It took me a while to shake that off because I was surrounded by people who constantly made me feel like I was some entitled brat. I refused to take anything from my father (Anil Kapoor) because of that and he used to get frustrated. There were days when he’d say, ‘What’s the point of me having done so much in the industry when you want to do everything on your own?’ Now, I’ve made peace with it as I feel I’ve been born into a family, given this talent to make a difference and I’m not going to let some outsider guilt-trip me into believing that I’m just a girl born with a silver-spoon who had it easy in life. That’s very unkind and an unfair judgment.”
