Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who was last seen in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa, added another feather in her cap by featuring in Variety’s International ‘Women’s Impact Report 2019’. Every year, the magazine salutes women who have made an impact in entertainment and lifestyle sector, both business and creative, across the globe.
Sonam was chosen for making a positive impact in a major way in Bollywood. The actor shared the report on her Twitter handle and expressed her happiness.
Oh my god what an honour to be mentioned with these women! ☺️? https://t.co/sJV0BfMnsD— Zoya Singh Solanki (@sonamakapoor) March 7, 2019
The report looks at her achievements through her work in the Hindi film industry in the recent past.
“Last year, the busy Bollywood actress starred in women-empowerment comedy Veere di Wedding; Padman, in which her character facilitates the journey of a man who makes it his life’s mission to provide affordable sanitary pads to rural Indian women; and Sanju, Bollywood’s highest grosser of the year. Already in 2019, she has starred in Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga, Bollywood’s first mainstream LGBTQIA film,” the report read, according to Variety.

“No effort is too small. Someday, we are all just going to be memories and it’s my aim to be the best one I possibly can,” she told the magazine.
Sonam, along with sister Rhea Kapoor, has taken it upon herself to change the way in which Bollywood and the audience perceive women and their relationships, as they are portrayed on screen. She will next feature in The Zoya Factor, which is based on the 2008 best-selling novel by Anuja Chauhan.
