Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is one such actress who is known for her candid nature. Now, a Hindustan Times report suggests that Sonam is set to join the Harvard Business School’s (HBS) panel for a special talk.
“HBS’ India research centre – as part of the Best of Harvard in South Asia platform – conducts lectures, roundtables, panel discussions and debates around substantive topics that are relevant from an Indian perspective,” an insider told HT.
Soon, HBS will start a Gender Series. Under this, the first conversation will be with the school’s professor on the topic – Beauty: Limiting or Liberating. Now, it has been learnt that the institution has invited Sonam to join the panel on July 14 for the same. The actress will share insights and take part in the debate as well.
“Sonam will talk about the pitfalls and challenges associated with both the aspects – notions of beauty and the aspiration to look ‘beautiful’,” said the insider.
Sonam wrote an open letter titled, ‘I didn’t wake up like this’ last year. The letter busted the myth of flawlessness. “Plus, she has also been very vocal about condemning body shaming and embracing individual beauty,” said the insider.
“I look forward to joining the conversation conducted by the HBS. I think the subject is very relevant to times that we live in,” told an excited Sonam.
