Actress and international fashion icon, Sonam Kapoor, has much reason to celebrate as she was lauded for her performance in what could only be described as her career’s biggest film this far, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
The actress turned into the quintessential Sooraj Barjatya heroine in the family drama opposite superstar Salman Khan and impressed audiences and the trade alike, with her performance in the film.
All praise for Sonam says Taran Adarsh, “First of all to be cast opposite Salman Khan in a Sooraj Barjatya film is a big achievement. Sonam is not a decorative piece in the film, she has acted really well. Initially when the cast was announced people had raised eyebrows but then everyone saw how lovely a couple she and Salman made as Prem and Maithali. There is no stopping this girl. She has a very bright future.”
Adds Komal Nahta, “Sonam is very good in the film. Not only does she look beautiful on screen but also got under the skin of her character. Although she has a very urban image she fit beautifully into the character of a traditional girl. This film is a turning point in her career.”
Says Amod Mehra, “Sonam has done her best in the film. She has looked charming and very graceful. I would say that she is the best thing in the film. And her contribution to the film is definitely immense.”
Apart from several raving about her performance, the actress who turned Indian princess with the film has also been celebrated by fashion and lifestyle magazines all this month.
