‘I have always been a hard-working person. Even when I was an air hostess, I used to make sure I am doing my work perfectly. Even today, I try to give my 100 percent to whatever I am doing. I think I was just destined to be here, and it was all God’s favour. Otherwise, I come from a very humble background. Both my parents are teachers. They have been immensely supportive of my career choices and never stopped me from doing what I love. Having said that, I don’t take stardom as permanent.’
A simple girl from a small town in Uttarakhand chased her dreams and is now ruling the Punjabi film industry! Sonam’s story is an encouragement to those who feel that outsiders can not make it big in the film industry.
