New Delhi: Can you ever believe that stunner Sonam Kapoor refused to be a model at one point in time? Well, turns out it's true. She actually said 'no' to none other than ace photographer Atul Kasbekar.
In her interview with 'Vogue BFFs', Sonam was quoted as saying, "I remember it was at a party which was for a cosmetic company, in 2006, I think. This tall person walks up to me -- which is Atul -- and he's like, 'Oh my God, do you want to model?' I had just started acting in 'Saawariya'. And I wasn't out at all, publicly, because my parents had kept me away from the press and the paps (paparazzi) and everything."
"So nobody knew what I looked like or anything," she added. "One of my friends was a make-up artist, so I just went for her party, just for fun! Nobody took pictures of me at that point. And I have Atul walking up to me and saying, 'Do you want to model?' So I told him, 'I am already acting in a movie!'."
To that, Kasbekar told her: "Ok, good...good."
Sonam made her big screen debut with Ranbir Kapoor in 'Saawariya' (2007).
