Lifestyle updates: We reveal Sonam Kapoor's best-read for this weekend; top 5 suggested books by the actress

Actress Sonam Kapoor who is known for her sartorial choices in the Hindi film industry is a learner of life, who likes to try different things. We support our statement with evidence of Sonam's films where the actress has been seen experimenting with her roles. Speaking of Sonam's engagement in different fields, the lady is proactive and truly workaholic.

Sonam Kapoor, who is married to Anand Ahuja, is an actress, model, and businesswoman. Yes, you read it right! Sonam also looks after high-end fashion brand RHESON in collaboration with her sister Rhea Kapoor. Giving you a piece of information here, the brand's name RHESON  is made up from the names of its co-founder ladies -RHE from Rhea, and SON from Sonam.

While Mrs Sonam K Ahuja is totally work-committed, the actress also keeps her hobbies alive. Revealing one of the hobbies of this 'Veere Di Wedding' movie star, Sonam likes to read books. Fashion enthusiast Sonam is an avid reader as well. Sonam took to her Instagram account sharing her recent best-read. The actress read Mahashweta and was touched by the story.

While praising the novel Mahashweta, written by Sudha Murty, the actress writes "Mahashweta is a touching story about a woman who was ostracized by those she thought stood by her. Love the way how Sudha Murty aptly speaks to the Indian society and portrays the inner strength of a woman, leaving you in awe & admiration." as her post's caption.

Adding more words to the caption, Sonam asked her followers to share their reading choices. She writes "Continue to share the books you guys have enjoyed reading and I will repost the ones which inspire me the most. Tag me & use the hashtag #WeekendReadingWithSonam."

Talking about the story of this novel, GoodReads summarise it as -Anupama looked into the mirror and shivered with shock. A small white patch had now appeared on her arm.' Anupama's fairytale marriage to Anand falls apart when she discovers a white patch on her foot and learns that she has leukoderma. Abandoned by her uncaring in-laws and insensitive husband, she is forced to return to her father's home in the village. The social stigma of a married woman living with her parents, her steother's continual barbs and the ostracism that accompanies her skin condition forced her to contemplate suicide. Determined to rebuild her life against all odds, Anupama goes to Bombay where she finds success, respect and the promise of an enduring friendship. Mahashweta is an inspiring story of courage and resilience in a world marred by illusions and betrayals. This poignant tale offers hope and solace to the victims of the prejudices that govern society even today.
