Sona started her career shadowing Sanjay Leela-Bhansali whilst he shot his epic 'Black' throughout 2004. She then made her debut with the same director in 2007 with 'Saawariya' alongside fellow star son Ranbir Kapoor.
Although she made her mark with her first film, all the glory (and awards) were taken by Deepika Padukone who incidentally debuted the same Friday with the box-office smash hit 'Om Shanti Om'. And since that day, their so-called "rivalry" has kept them in the gossip columns.
Today she has come a very long way. She has had her share of hits and misses. And last month she wowed audiences worldwide with her stunning appearance at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
Currently she is working on 'Players' alongside fellow UBD Bipasha Basu which is due later this year; and 'Mausum' opposite Shahid Kapoor which has wrapped it's schedule and will open in cinemas September 9th.
On her 26th birthday, let's celebrate by enjoying one of her finest moments so far: Masakali.
