If truth is to be told, 2019 has not turn out to be quite a successful year for actress Sonam Kapoor. The actress saw the release of two films in 2019 – Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and The Zoya Factor – but both of them fell flat at the box-office. Though her performance in both the outing were lauded by critics as well as audiences, they incurred heavy losses for the producers.
