Sonam Kapoor made her second appearance on the red carpet at Cannes on May 19, which incidentally is the 30th wedding anniversary of her parents Anil and Sunita Kapoor. While Anil is away on a cruise for shooting, Sonam urged her mom to go with her. Sunita, who prefers to remain in the shadows -- She didn't even accompany her husband on Oscar night during Slumdog Millionaire -- gave in to the pressure from her actress daughter and accompanied her to Cannes. Though one can be assured she will not be seen her on the red carpet.
But the trip was just the beginning. Sonam has planned a surprise party for her mum, even though she has a busy schedule. The actress, who lives with her parents, is a total family girl and has always made it clear that they are a priority. And when it comes to special occasions, she makes it a point to be there.
