Sonam is a very graceful dancer and has received training in classical Indian and Latin dance forms.
Sonam was a tom boy during her school days and even captained the basketball team. She had a bob cut till she was 15
Sonam was almost 90 kgs when Sanjay Leela Bansali offered her ‘Saawariya’. She lost around 30 kgs to get into the character.
Sonam never wanted to be an actress this is what she said in an interview ‘If I wanted to act with Sanjay, I would not have gone as a 90-kilo girl. I would have done my eyebrows, not worn glasses and at least groomed myself a little bit before going. That was not my intention, I was too young and I wanted to go to university but it was destiny or fate I don’t know but I wanted to work with him.”
