Mumbai, March 27 -- Sonam Kapoor has always been attached to her family, but recently, professional commitments compelled her to pick work over time with them.
It was her mother Sunita's birthday on Wednesday (March 26), and the actor was keen on planning a party for her, but a shoot for a brand she is affiliated with played spoilsport.
A friend of Sonam tells us, "Anil uncle (Kapoor; Sonam's father) has been shooting in Dubai for a while, and Sunita aunty joined him a few days ago. They were both planning to return to Mumbai for the party. But now that the party is not happening, they have cancelled that plan. Both of them are celebrating her birthday in Dubai."
A source close to Sonam adds, "She is disappointed that she can't be with her mother on her birthday, but she's in regular touch with her over the phone."
