Sonam Kapoor and Salman Khan

The year 2014 seems to have begun on a positive note for Fashionista Sonam Kapoor. After being declared as the female lead opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Raees”, Sonam is said to have grabbed a project with none other than Salman Khan. She will be portraying the romantic interest of Salman Khan in Sooraj Bajatya’s next. Reports of Sonam being considered for the film have been doing the rounds after the film’s initial choice Deepika Padukone opted out citing date issues.




According to sources, Sooraj is said to have picked Sonam for her innocent and traditional looks. Barjatya, well known for his family-drama films felt the actress suited the part the most, after having watched her performance in ‘Raanjhaana’. There will be a proper announcement at the right time. Till then Sonam can’t talk about it all. Even her family is keeping mum on this prestigious project.

Sonam’s next, a YRF film “Bewakoofiyaan” with Ayushmann Khurrana has created a positive buzz, since its trailer was released on 6 February. It has already amassed around 2 lakh hits in a day.
