Haven’t got anything: Sonam on Hollywood

The daughter of actor-producer Anil Kapoor hasn’t signed anything recently in ­Bollywood either. Her last film was this year’s acclaimed hostage drama Neerja. “I’m looking for something right now,” she said. So, is it easier for star kids to take a break from films compared to outsiders? “It takes a lot of courage to wait for the right thing to do. I don’t take money from my father. Just because I’m Anil Kapoor’s daughter, doesn’t mean he pays my bills,” she said. – IANS
