Sonam Kapoor started life with a structured education and firm grounding in the process of film making. After completing her schooling from Arya Vidya Mandir and receiving International Baccalaureate from the United World College of South East Asia, she started her career in the film industry by assisting Sanjay Leela Bhansali during the making of Black (2005).

Sonam Kapoor made her debut with Saawariya (2007) alongside debutant male actor, Ranbir Kapoor. The film did not do well at the box-office; however Sonam Kapoor as an actress was recognized. Delhi – 6 (2009), her second film also failed at the box-office. She then appeared in I Hate Luv Storys (2010), which went on to become her first box-office hit. Aisha (2010), in which she starred with Abhay Deol, was again a box-office failure.

In 2011 she was seen in Thank You and Mausam. Both the films failed to do much at the box-office. She was seen in Abbas-Mustan’s thriller Players in 2012 but this film also turned out to be a box-office flop.

Kapoor made her third appearance at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2013, representing not only L’Oréal, but also some Indian brands (dress by Huemn and jewellery by Suhani Pittie). Her first release of 2013, Raanjhanaa, opened to a positive critical reception and proved to be a commercial success, netting 340 million (US$5.2 million) nett approx domestically in the first week.

Kapoor’s portrayal of Zoya Haidar, a headstrong but emotional middle class girl, earned her rave reviews throughout the globe, with Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama noting that “The actor in Sonam was waiting for a role that would make the spectator sit up and notice it and the one in Raanjhanaa gives her that opportunity. The headstrong and emotional persona comes across so well in this film. In addition, like Delhi 6, she’s devoid of makeup and that makes the character so appealing. This film is a huge leap frontward for Sonam as an actor.” Komal Nahta agrees, saying that “Sonam Kapoor looks very pretty and plays Zoya beautifully. The character of Zoya has tremendous range and Sonam does full justice to it. Her transition is amazing.” Rajeev Masand adds that “[Kapoor] does some of her best work here, going smoothly from innocent to manipulative to cynical, without ever losing Zoya’s inherent vulnerability.” Joginder Tuteja also writes positively, saying that “Sonam is a revelation and though she has seen appreciation coming her way in earlier films, this one would stand out as a milestone and her career best till date. Playing well on the front foot in an author backed role, she delivers, and how. Moreover, her act in the last 15–20 minutes of the film go on to stun you”.

Kapoor on the sets of India’s Dancing Superstar to promote Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. She next appeared in the biographical sports film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag opposite Farhan Akhtar and Pakistani actress Meesha Shafi. Her role Biro was of Akhtar’s former love-interest. The film opened to tremendous critical acclaim and was termed as a huge box office success on the second day of release itself. Moreover, her performance also met with positive reviews. Mohar Basu of entertainment site Koi Moi wrote, “Sonam Kapoor has a lovely tinge in her little role in her limited screen time, she will flatter you enough that you actually feel bad that Milkha and Biro eventually part ways!”. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama also mentioned, “Sonam puts her best foot forward as well. Although the character is brief, she shines in those pertinent moments nonetheless”.Gayatri Shankar of Zee News stated, “Sonam, though has very little screen time, does her bit quite well”. Joginder Tuteja of Movie Talkies also gave a positive review saying, “Sonam Kapoor has a very minor role and after Raanjhanaa, we wish we could have got to see more of her in this film”. The film has also been termed as her biggest commercial success ’til date.

Kapoor is currently shooting for Yash Raj Film‘s Bewakoofian, co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Rishi Kapoor.
