Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor has not been keeping well of late. The actress was tested positive for swine flu a few days ago and is now on the road to recovery. 

She will soon appear with Salman Khan in "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo."

There are few facts about the "Khoobsurat" actress that very few people are aware of.

Let's take a look:

Sonam Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are cousins

Everybody knows that Arjun and Sonam are cousins but few of them are aware of that Ranveer Singh is also related to the actress. Ranveer is related to Sonam from her mother's side.

Sonam was a waitress

While actor Anil Kapoor has evidently pampered his princess, the actress has been a waitress in the past to supplement her pocket money.

She broke up with her former boyfriend due to her weight issues

Sonam Kapoor is said to have dumped a former boyfriend because he made some comments on her weight. Well, the guy must be regretting it now.

Sonam claims that she will not marry an actor

The diva has vowed not to marry an actor. It seems the Kapoor girl has seen her father's work life and she thus doesn't want to marry someone from the same profession.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali took a year and a half to convince Kapoor for her debut

At the age of 17, she was offered Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Saawariya" and it took a long time for the director to convince the actress to make her Bollywood debut. She once said, "When I met him he said I look like an Ajanta painting. I never knew I was good looking so was never sure of becoming an actress. It took him one and half years to convince me to do the role."

Sonam always threatened others with her brothers' names as a kid

"Sonam would every time use our names like we're expert in gunda-gardi. So one time in school she came up to me and complained about a boy and I like a charged-up brother went and pulled him by his collar. Next thing I knew he had punched me and I later found out he was a National level boxer!" said Arjun Kapoor in a chat show.
