Sonam Kapoor's debut film Saawariya may have sunk without a trace at the B.O. Yet both the critics and audience were unanimous in their words of praise for the tall and pretty actress. Since then, Sonam has been busy shooting for her second film- Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Delhi 6 where she is paired opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
This year, Sonam may not have had a single release, yet she has managed to stay in the limelight for one reason or the other. The latest is that Sonam has bagged her first official endorsement deal. According to sources, it is learnt that the young actress will be the brand ambassador for international cosmetic brand L'Oreal and will launch its new range of products targeted at the young generation.
By now its common knowledge that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been the face of L'Oreal. So does that mean its curtains for Ash from the L'Oreal family? Well, not quite, as Ash will continue her association with the brand as the original old face of L'Oreal while Sonam would be the face of L'Oreal for the younger generation.
Sonam has already shot for her first L'Oreal ad which will be launched sometime in January next year (2009).
