Known for her unconventional movie choices, extraordinary fashion sense and honesty, there is one thing not a lot of people know about the Khoobsurat actress, Sonam Kapoor and that is her work for social causes. She works to raise awareness for breast cancer by being the spokesperson for Elle Breast Cancer campaign, helps underprivileged children get an education by having an auction called “Sonam Turns Santa” every Christmas, lead the Mumbai anti-rape protest rally being the only Bollywood actress to do so, fighting for equal rights and pay for female make-up artists, and speaking against child labour to raise awareness and that is to name just a few of her efforts.
Continuing her social work, Sonam is now calling people in Delhi to adopt dogs a cause which she calls “close to my heart”. The actress tweeted in support of Puppy Love Delhi showcasing the groups mission to place Desi dogs in loving homes. Sonam herself has adopted three dogs after finding them in a miserable condition outside her Mumbai home. As an avid animal lover, this is not the first time Sonam has spoken about helping animals. Sonam, along with PETA, has always promoted the ban of manja, a glass coated string used to fly kites, to make it safer for birds during kite-flying season.
Often in the news for her movies and her fashion choices as well as her opinionated personality, this is an unsung side of Sonam that not many people are aware of.
Sonam will be next seen in Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo along with Salman Khan. The movie will be hitting the screens this Diwali.
