Sonam Kapoor was all smiles yesterday as her film Neerja received the Best National film Award and the actress also received a special mention for her role in the film. The actress looked extremely stunning in a pistachio green saree at the event.
While talking about the win to a leading daily, Sonam said, “It’s amazing because I am here with my parents and it’s a matter of great pride. For me receiving the award being Anil Kapoor’s daughter is the biggest joy because I don’t lobby for awards. Funnily, I didn’t feel any pressure or nervousness, I just feel light because this is a huge validation. Contrary to what people think, I work really hard on every project and I do it with a lot of integrity. When a film (Neerja) like this wins an award, it’s reassuring as everyone is part of a competition and the rat race. It’s about putting your head down, being focussed and working at your own pace. I’ve realised that aggression doesn’t work in the long run. It affects you mentally and physically, and eventually burns you out. If you are kind and honest, it should be enough.”
Sonam was last seen in Neerja and took a break post that. Currently, Sonam is working with R.Balki for his next titled Padman. With Neerja’s award win, a lot is being expected from Sonam.
