Sonam Kapoor is a rebel

She is a trend setter, but there’s a free-spirit vibe to the young actor that sets her apart. We are talking about none other than the Sawariya actress Sonam Kapoor.
Since her much-publicized debut and a film like Aisha , Sonam has surprised many for her acting, but almost more so for her liberating and independent image. Movie stars, whether we like it or not, set the fashion trends and attitude for the nation. And Sonam, in her short career, has become a fashion tour de force, one of the major trendsetters for a new generation of young women. She’s set the pace with daring dressing, going out on a limb when most actors border on the conservative.

“The only reason I experiment with clothes is that I don’t give a damn about what people think. It’s about being myself and being comfortable, and people have to accept me for who I am. I don’t want to conform for the sake of people liking me.” Said Sonam Kapoor.

Her piercings and tattoos add to her charm, but she refuses when asked how many or where (not somewhere where you can see them) and to being a rebel when she was younger (all the typical stuff, like staying out too late). She admits to being a risk taker. “Think about it. The greatest achievement in life is because of a risk you’ve taken. It can either be calculated or spontaneous, and for me, most of the time it’s spontaneous because I am a rebellious person.”
