Sonam Kapoor, the actor who always wears her heart on sleeves

Sonam Kapoor is a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. 

Sonam Kapoor knows how to amp up her fashion game with the latest trends. She made her debut in the film industry with 'Saawariya', co-starring the nation's heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor and left everyone in awe of her beauty. In a career span of over fifteen years, Sonam has come a long way as an actor. This bold beauty has never shied away from speaking her heart out. Here is a look at some of the statements made by her which stirred the internet.

Weight gain

Sonam Kapoor tied the knot with businessman Anand Ahuja in 2018. In an interview with news agency IANS, the actor revealed that she gained weight post-marriage, had bad skin, and developed dark circles. However, she didn't lose her confidence. She encouraged other women by saying that it's okay to be a mess. Sonam said, ‘A lot of girls tend to be like, 'Listen, if I am such a mess, how am I ever going to succeed in life?' But I want to say, it's okay to be a mess.’

She further stated that in India there is a lot of pressure, be it about marriage, education, skin, short hair, or drinking.

Homosexuality

Sonam Kapoor has been a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. During a conversation with Kareena Kapoor Khan on her radio show, ‘What Women Want’, the actor talked about homosexuality as she portrayed the role of a lesbian in the 2019 film, 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.' When asked if she is inspired by her real-life for her role in the film, the 'Neerja' actor said that she draws mere emotions from her real life. Sonam further added that people need to understand that one's sexuality is something one is born with, be it a man or a woman, it's on that person to be a woman or a man.

Distance makes the heart fonder

Sonam Kapoor is a doting wife to Anand Ahuja. Since her marriage to the Delhi-based entrepreneur, her life has been 'everyday phenomenal'. In an interview, the 'Delhi-6' actor said that she keeps shuttling between Mumbai, London, and Delhi. On juggling between work and personal life, Sonam said that distance does make her heart fonder and she misses Anand a lot. She said that her husband flies to see her at times while she also cancels some of her projects to spend quality time with him.

‘Honesty is not appreciated in film industry’

Sonam Kapoor believes that honesty is not appreciated in the film industry and that she needs to be very 'careful' while pouring her heart out. She added that one's statements can be ‘twisted and distorted’ and a lot is ‘lost in translation.’

During the promotions of her 2014 film 'Bewakoofiyaan' there were reports that Sonam Kapoor's father Anil Kapoor said that her bikini shot would get her film a good opening. However, the actor refuted the reports and said that he never made such a statement.

‘My style statement is my self-expression’

Sonam Kapoor is known for her sartorial choices. Speaking about the same, she said that she never intends to dress up for others. She said that her style reflects her individuality and her self-expression. She also shared how the clothes and jewellery she received in legacy hold a special place in her heart. For the unversed, the actor wore a pearl necklace given to her by her Nani on her wedding day.
