MUMBAI: Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is known for style statements, is a voracious reader and would like to pen down her autobiography some day.

“You know I think I am too young and inexperienced and I don’t know if I have the talent to write, but you know everybody is narcissistic. I would like to write about my life one day or the other. I am an actor after all, but I don’t know if right now I will be able to,” the 26-year-old said here while launching the book Two Mothers And Other Stories by Khalid Mohamed.

Known as a fashion icon, Sonam would not touch the topic she is most known for in her book.

“Clothes and style is just my personal choice. It is not something I am obsessed with. May be romance,” said Sonam while talking about the issues she would want to touch upon in her book.

Talking about how she learnt reading, she said: “I was being read to at a very young age by my mother. She would always read fables that had a meaning. She would always ask me what was the point behind the story,” said Sonam.

“In the meantime, I was little annoyed with my mom… then she tried to make me more of a voracious reader… she would not finish the story and I used to get anxious to know the rest of it. So, I had no choice but to read it myself. So that’s how I started reading so much,” she added.

Sonam will soon be seen in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag opposite Farhan Akhtar.

    What’s with this picture of her? She looks stunning in the lawn ads. I doubt many people are dying to read a book by a 26-year-old whose success is because her father is a Bollywood veteran.

    But what she will write. She was sweet sixteen just 10 years back and 10 years of life is nothing for autobiography. Baby wait for few years and enjoy the life from all angles and then try it. By the way, for many days, ET is very quite about its beloved Veena Malik. Hope no dispute or difference propped up.

    She is not so famous. So who will read her autobiography?

    Whether she is worth her salt to write an autobiography at a young age is certainly questionable. I can count the no of films she has acted on my fingers. Ofcouse having a Biological Father in Bollywood helps more than god father itself, who himself happened to be in the top league is a bonus for her. Certainly daughters of Shakti Kapoor, Kulbushan Karbanda (J J W S) are not having it easy.I how ever enjoy her girle fight on twitter with fellow celebrities like shobha de, Abhay Deol and also shaid kapoor. However she should be appreciated for her impeccable style and sense of dressing. Ofcouse when money is not a criterion for buying designer labels, at least she should be appreciated for having guts to try and be different.

    She can try covering great Himalayas, the ancient sufis and such other topics. I hope it will be some success then :-)

    She can actually write about how she went on from being a 90 KGs obese girl to looking this great! Can surely be an inspiration for young girls.
