After Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, now, it’s the turn of Sonam Kapoor. The ‘Neerja’ actress has inked a deal with popular Hollywood talent management company United Talent Agency, for representation in the United States. This deal will mark Sonam’s first professional outing in the US and it remains to be seen which Hollywood projects does this beauty bag. In Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor is working on two major projects. Sonam will be seen in ‘Veerey Di Wedding’ as well as an onscreen adaptation of novel ‘Battle For Bittora’.
Kapoor hails from a popular filmy family with father Anil Kapoor conquering, not just Bollywood, but Hollywood as well. In an Instagram post, the actress has shared a screenshot of a Deadline news report exclusively confirming her project.
“Super duper chuffed to sign on with #unitedtalentagency ! I know this is going to be an epic partnership!,” Sonam Kapoor wrote on Instagram. For the uninitiated, 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.
With various films like Aisha, Delhi 6, and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sonam Kapoor’ acting abilities were seriously doubtful despite being from a family connected to the Bollywood industry. Until this year, when she proved her potentials with moving performance in the film Neerja.
Sonam Kapoor is one of the brand ambassadors of Loreal, if she gets the right role, she can probably prove she is more than the fashionable woman at the red carpet of Cannes.
