Bollywood Actresses 6
More beautiful female stars of Hindi films with Sonam Kapoor, Ayesha Takia, Manisha Koirala and more
So here we are at my sixth Bollywood women article with even more beautiful Bollywood actresses.
This time we have Konkona Sen Sharma, Ayesha Takia, Manisha Koirala, Kareena Kapoor's sister Karisma, Sonam Kapoor, Sushmita Sen and Celina Jaitley.
As far as I can tell, Sonam Kapoor isn't related to Kareena Kapoor.
I could be wrong though.
She was born on June 9,1985 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
(Just how many Bollywood actresses were born in Mumbai anyway?)
Sonam's film debut was in the 2007 film Saawariya with Rani Mukerji. Not only was Saawariya the first Bollywood movie to receive a North American release by a Hollywood studio, it was also one of the first Bollywood films to be released on Blu Ray.
She has only released one film since then, 2009's Delhi-6, but she will be appearing in the upcoming Bollywood films Aisha and I Hate Luv Storys scheduled for release in 2010.
