Sonam for Shahid’s Mausam!!

20 02 2010

Sonam Kapoor, the sexy slender babe of bollywood who made her acting debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Sawaariya’ and then mesmerized audiences with ‘massakali’ act in ‘Delhi 6’, has been finalized by Pankaj Kapur to act in his upcoming magnum opus ‘Mausam’ opposite Shahid Kapur.

 Initially, Sonam Kapoor was not even in the reckoning and Pankaj Kapur wanted to cast some new face like Sonakshi Sinha (Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter) or Narmada (Govinda’s daughter) or Shazahn Padamsee(ad guru Alyque Padamsee’s daughter) and had even auditioned these young cute things.

However, they could not satisfy Pankaj’s high standards, and finally he opted for Sonam Kapoor, who was too glad to grab the opportunity with both hands. Sources close to Pankaj Kapur say that a major factor in favor of Sonam Kapoor (who is Anil Kapoor’s daughter) was the fact that she had a terrific chemistry with Supriya Pathak, Pankaj’s wife. In fact, they both had worked together in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Delhi 6’ and had been on good terms since then.

However, it does not mean that Sonam Kapoor was selected due to her connections with Supriya. In fact, Pankaj Kapur and others were very impressed with her freshness and mesmerizing act in ‘Delhi 6.’ Though the movie could not do any wonder at the box office but it did establish Sonam as a sweet next door girl. Even her song ‘massakali’ was super duper hit with the audiences.

The grapevine has it that the role in ‘Mausam’ was such that Sonam Kapoor’s fresh face and slender figure perfectly suited the subject matter of the film. The whole creative team of Pankaj Kapur’s flick was perfectly convinced that she would be able to do full justice opposite Shahid Kapur in the film.

Earlier, Pankaj Kapur had expressed his desire to go for a nationwide search for the heroine of his film opposite Shahid, as he felt that an established heroine would not be able to do justice with the subject of the film. But the logistical difficulties in going for such a venture forced him to zero in on the gorgeous Kapoor babe.

In the meantime, Shahid Kapur is trying to concentrate on Pankaj Kapur’s film for the next year or so. After the super success of Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Kaminey’ (and the debacle of ‘Chance pe Dance’) at the box office, Shahid has become selective and wants to take every step with care.

‘Mausam’ with Shahid Kapur and Sonam Kapoor in the lead is expected to go on the floors in July this year.
