Sonya V Kapoor

Sonya, who has wanted to direct films and work in the entertainment industry since she was in sixth grade, spent 15 years in the talent management field before launching her own company.

Before meeting Sonya, Amrita had no intention of becoming an entrepreneur, having worked at Globosport for 9 years.

“At the time, the concept of becoming an entrepreneur was not on my mind, but possibilities presented themselves approximately 2-3 times. And it was at that point that I realised I didn’t want to leave anything behind, so I discovered myself,” Amrita explains.

Women are now fearlessly carrying the torch of entrepreneurship in every field, overcoming all obstacles and converting them into opportunities. Even though they faced problems, Sonya and Amrita, as two women entrepreneurs in the media sector, played it safe. “

You can also look at how we changed them into positives and used it to our strength instead,” they add.

The two, who are from separate places, have managed to network in their respective cities and put everything under one roof, something they are proud of as business partners. While Sonya is well-connected in Delhi, and Amrita is well-connected in Mumbai, both are experienced in creating their mark in the industry. “We’ve done marquee deals with Disha Patani, Kiara Advani, individually worked with Kareena as well as a really interesting one with Manoj Bajpai,” say the duo, whose biggest milestone was a collaboration with Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. 

While it was a nice one, Sonya adds, “Fortunately, there is a lot more work occurring and to come.” Their most recent work started when Tata Play approached them about an exciting rebranding potential with top personalities onboard. “This is quite exciting for us, and it makes us very proud of all of our hard work. This has been one of our most talked-about ads, and it’s a terrific way to kick in 2022,” Amrita says.

For them, the future holds a slew of celebrity partnerships as well as a foray into filmmaking and the OTT realm. “Right now, I’m in the middle of pre-production of a short film. The aim is to progress, to keep working, and to have fun while doing so,” Sonya explains.
