Everybody reminds me of this every day. I face this fear every day. People say, Oh she is Anil Kapoors daughter. Is she?”It is heartbreaking but at the same time it gives me strength because I love being my fathers daughter and I dont want anyone to make me feel like it is a burden. He has worked very hard to give me everything that I want. My father has always worked for the family. Thats my fear,” she said.Sonam, 30, also recalled a conversation with actor Dhanush, her co-star in “Raanjhanaa”, about the same and that affected her deeply.”One day I sat down with Dhanush, who is a very close friend of mine. I heard something and it stayed with me for a very long time.
