Star kids have to struggle more: Anil Kapoor
Actor Anil Kapoor believes that star kids have to struggle more in the film industry as there are lot of expectations from them. Anil, who has three children - of whom Sonam is into acting and Rhea has turned a producer while son is still studying - said, "It is a different kind of struggle that they have to do. Our struggle was different. Their struggle is that the expectations from them are more as they are celebrity kids. I feel their struggle is more than us."
Sonam made her acting debut in 2007 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Saawariya' opposite Ranbir Kapoor that bombed at the box office. She subsequently starred in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's 'Delhi 6' (2009) opposite Abhishek Bachchan, which again was a flop.
Her next release, Karan Johar's production 'I Hate Luv Storys' (2010), was her first commercial success.Later again, four of her films, Aisha (2010), Thank You (2011), 'Mausam' (2011) and 'Players' (2012) did not impress the audience.
"I feel Sonam has had a fantastic journey. She did a lot of hard work. It is a different kind of struggle that they have to do. If they do something good, people still expect more. There is certain expectation from her as she is the child of a celebrity," he said. Though Sonam's journey in Bollywood may not be that happening, she is always talked about, especially about her fashion sense.
"When she did 'Sawariya' and 'Delhi 6' people started saying she should wear fashionable clothes, she is doing Behenji type of roles. She does not have that thing. So when she did 'Aisha' they were like... do that kind (de-glamorized type) of a film. She has proved herself, from 'Sawariya' till now," Kapoor said. (PTI)
