Why didn't Salman want to do 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' with Sonam?

New Delhi [India], Sept. 20 (ANI): Who says star-kids are always privileged?

Sonam Kapoor recently revealed that she lost many films because of her father Anil Kapoor and while citing an example she said, Salman Khan did not want to do 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' with her.

"I lost out on a lot of films because of my father (Anil Kapoor). Salman Khan didn't want to do Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with me. He was like, 'Anil Kapoor has been my close friend. How can I romance his daughter?' It was really difficult and weird," she explained during an interview with Huffington Post.

Citing another such examples, the 31-year-old actress said, " Farah Khan is one of my mother's best friends and yet I haven't done a Farah film, nor does she look at me as an actress she'd want to cast. It's a different, non-work relationship,"

Further denying the notion that star kids like her, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha got easy access in the industry, Sonam stated, "The top heroines today- Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra- are both women who aren't from the industry. And are you telling me that Alia Bhatt is where she is because of her family and not because of her talent? Nepotism exists everywhere but that doesn't make the journey any easier."

On a related note, the actress, in an extension to her thought, spoke about the inner conflict she dealt with for being part of a wealthy family.

"It took me a while to shake that off because I was surrounded by people who constantly made me feel like I was some entitled brat. I refused to take anything from my father ( Anil Kapoor) because of that and he used to get frustrated. There were days when he'd say, 'What's the point of me having done so much in the industry when you want to do everything on your own?' Now, I've made peace with it as I feel I've been born into a family, given this talent to make a difference and I'm not going to let some outsider guilt-trip me into believing that I'm just a girl born with a silver-spoon who had it easy in life. That's very unkind and an unfair judgment," she added.

On the work front, after garnering an universal acclamation for her performance in Ram Madhvani's ' Neerja,' the 31-year-old actor will start working on home production ' Veere di Wedding,' which will also feature Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar. (ANI)
