Bollywood actor and fashion diva Sonam Kapoor recently shot for the cover of a popular international women's fashion magazine and claimed that she has to make harder choices to stop feeling sorry for herself and pave the way for other women. The actor spoke at length about issues of women empowerment and her choices of film roles. She shared several photos from the shoot and captioned them with excerpts from her interview.

Wearing a khaki coloured Bazza Alzouman off shoulder tulle ball gown, Sonam Kapoor looked ethereal as she captioned her post with the words, "You can’t just be the poor little rich girl or feel sorry for yourself - no. I have to make those harder choices and pave the way for other women after me. My whole team are women - and we need to lift each other up. There are thousands of years of patriarchy to cut through.”
