Sonam has to rest now: Anil Kapoor

Actor Anil Kapoor is in no mood to let his daughter Sonam take her health lightly after she was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on Thursday due to over-exhaustion.

A concerned Anil says, "Sonam was discharged from the hospital yesterday morning. She is going to take complete rest for at least a week at home. As actors, you will always be busy with work. But this time around, I will make sure she takes it easy."

Apparently, Sonam was fatigued and sleep-deprived after a hectic work schedule, which included shooting for an endorsement, jetting off to SonamJaipur as brand ambassador for a luxury car, shooting for Mausam, and rushing to Dubai for the promotion of Thank You.

"I feel Sonam is facing the health scare mainly because she didn’t take enough rest after a bout of typhoid. When you are recovering from typhoid, you have to eat home-cooked food and take adequate rest. Since she refused to relax, God said: ‘Now, I will make your rest.’ But as actors, we have to constantly travel to various places and eat different kinds of food," said Anil.

According to Anil, Sonam is a tough girl but of late, she has been working too hard to complete Thank You and Mausam.

"When you work on big films, you have to schedule your dates as per other stars’ availability. For instance, she has been working hard on Mausam because it also has a big star like Shahid (Kapoor). Since both the films were towards completion, Sonam, being a professional, thought she should complete the films before relaxing," he added.

Apparently, Sonam’s hospitalisation has cost the producers of Mausam dearly. An elaborate set worth Rs 1.5 crores, which was constructed for Pankaj Kapoor’s film shoot to be held from March 30 to April 1, had to be dismantled. Reportedly, it will take as much money to re-construct it.
