'Sonam has been a surprise'

'Sonam has been a surprise'

Star talk

They became friends after meeting on the set of ‘Raanjhaana’ and Swara Bhaskar says Sonam Kapoor turned out to be a ‘surprise’ as she had a different perception about industry kids before meeting her.

Sonam comes from a cinema background, while Swara, 28, is a complete outsider but they bonded from the beginning. Apart from ‘Raanjhaana’, Swara and Sonam worked together in Salman Khan-starrer ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. They are working again in ‘Veere Di Wedding’.

“Sonam is a tremendous person. We met on the set of ‘Raanjhaana’ and I have to say that getting to know Sonam has been a surprise at every turn,” said Swara, adding that she had a different perception about her and thought “she must be an awful person.”

“But I have no shame in saying that our friendship is 100 per cent Sonam’s effort. She is the one who not just befriended me but won over all my prejudices by constantly trying.”

“After ‘Raanjhaana’ released, my best compliments and the most effusive praise for that film came from Sonam. I think that is a true sign of generosity,” Swara added.
