Bewakoofiyan was the first movie in which Sonam Kapoor donned a bikini, but did you know what was dad Anil Kapoor's comment on the scene? Read on.
Bollywood's fashionista Sonam Kapoor shocked everyone when she was seen in a hot pink bikini in her Bollywood movie Bewakoofiyan featuring Ayushmann Khurrana.
The movie didn't do well at the box office but her sensuous avatar made headlines and shocked many.
Some said her bikini look did not suit her; a few were awestruck with her sexy look. This was the first time Sonam was seen in a two-piece and she did raise many eyebrows back then.
Talking about her father Anil Kapoor's reaction to the bikini scene, Sonam had said, "He knew about that (the bikini shot)! My dad is an artist and he is very open-minded...actually he was the one who encouraged me to become an actress. He didn't say anything, he just said the film will get a good opening."
She explained further at a press conference of the film, "I didn't have to work hard because I am playing a regular girl in the film. I have a tendency to put on weight but my routine was the same for this film. You will not see me as a movie star in this movie as I am playing a regular girl."
"When I signed the film, it was my idea. I was briefed that there is a pool there and I have to wear swimsuit. I said my body is lean, and it is thin on the waist...so let's just show that. If you see the shot...unlike the shots in films like 'Dhoom' or 'Race', cameras are not panned on the body. It's a normal shot where I am wearing a swimsuit and jumping into the pool," she said.
Last month, Sonam Kapoor took to Instagram to announce that owing to the vegan diet, she had developed iodine deficiency. "Just a note to all the vegetarians or vegans out there! Please make sure you're using SALT with IODINE in it. I've just found out I have an iodine deficiency (sic)," she wrote.
She is currently busy with her next The Battle of Bittora featuring Zain Altaf Khan. Rhea Kapoor is producing a film based on the novel written by Anuja Chauhan. Sonam's last movie The Zoya Factor with Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan won good reviews.
