Next Big Thing: Sonam Kapoor Filmfare Scans. Before starting her career off as an actress, Kapoor worked as an assistant under Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and assisted him during the making of his film, Black (2005). She made her debut alongside newcomer Ranbir Kapoor in Bhansali’s Saawariya (2007), which failed to do well at the box office. Her performance was opened to good response by most critics. As of August 2008, Kapoor has completed filming for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi-6, which will release on February 20, 2009.
