Her films often see her play the demure girl-next-door, but off the screen Sonam Kapoor is a chirpy young woman who would blurt out just about anything. 

A few years ago, in an interview to Times Now, the lady was asked by the reporter what the one thing that she hates about being a woman was, to which pat came the reply: "Wearing a bra."

Miss Kapoor had famously taken a swipe at Ranbir Kapoor on Koffee With Karan when, in the presence of Deepika Padukone, she said, “Ranbir is a nice guy but I don’t know him as boyfriend, and she [Padukone] did a great job at hanging on to him for so long.”

In her latest stunning disclosure, Sonam Kapoor has told a daily that she wouldn’t mind going bald for a role. “I would love to go bald for a film! I have a nicely shaped head. It would look good if I went bald,” she told DNA.

The Neerja actress revealed that Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had offered her the female lead in Mirzya, for which she was required to go bald. That was before he approached her brother Harshvardhan Kapoor for the lead role. Kapoor had agreed to go bald, but once Mehra pinned on her brother for the lead role, Sonam Kapoor had to be replaced.

In another bald disclosure, Kapoor revealed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted her to go bald for Saraswati Chandra but that film didn’t take off.

Well, all those curious cats who are wondering how Sonam Kapoor would look bald? We took a bit of creative liberty and applied Edward Scissorhands to Miss Kapoor’s scalp.
