From the time she entered Bollywood in 2007 with "Saawariya", Sonam Kapoor Ahuja mostly courted the limelight as a fashionista and a highly-opinionated person rather than with her acting skills -- till "Neerja" in 2016 changed that opinion for many.
Sonam, along with other Bollywood stars was invited by PM Narendra Modi for the release of a cultural video with the theme 'Change Within' to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The Zoya Factor actress opted for a gold and ivory saree by Sabyasachi. She shared her several pictures on her social media handle, captioning them with quotes by Gandhi.
"Initially I was disheartened to face criticism for no reason. There were times people criticised me and did not take me seriously because I love fashion and dressing up. I felt bad but I also love acting and the process of moviemaking so much that my passion towards my profession remain a constant drive", Sonam told IANS.
"I love acting and fashion. I make every choice from my self-belief, and when you are driven by passion you are bound to get positive results. I have learnt to be patient and realised that patience is the greatest virtue in life", she added.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's last release "The Zoya Factor" failed at the box-office.
