Feb 13, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Pankaj Kapur’s ‘Mausam’ had a number of contenders for the female lead opposite his son, Shahid, like Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi, Govinda’s daughter Narmada, and Alyque Padamsee’s daughter Shazahn Padamsee. However, looks like it’s going to be Sonam Kapoor who takes away the cake.
According to sources, everyone on the unit of ‘Mausam’ is glad to have Sonam join the team. They are of the opinion that Sonam is a good choice for the role. Supriya Pathak, Pankaj’s wife, is the most excited of them all to have Sonam in the film. She got along with Sonam amazingly well during the shooting of ‘Delhi-6’.
Sonam was chosen for the film without an audition. While that is alright, the film was supposed to look for girls all over the country for the role. Apparently, the idea was dropped as it proved to be too troublesome.
