It seems fitting that Sonam should represent our country on a global stage with other accomplished artists to bring in a new era of unity, harmony and creativity. As a father, and as a member of the Indian film fraternity, I could not be more proud of Sonam for being the face and voice of this generation. @sonamkapoor (red heart emoji)."

At the coronation concert, Sonam introduced the choir performances of The Bahamas Youth Choir, Steve Windwood and Virtual Commonwealth Choir. Beginning with a namaste, her speech at the event stated, "Our Commonwealth is a union. Together we are one third of the world’s people, one third of the world’s ocean, one quarter of the world’s land. Each of our countries is unique. Each of our people is special. But we choose to stand this one. Learning from our history, blessed by our diversity, driven by our values and determined to build a more peaceful, sustainable and prosperous future for everyone, where every voice is heard."
Sonam was last seen in the film AK vs AK (2020) in a cameo alongside her father Anil and brother, actor Harsh Varddhan Kapoor. She is awaiting the release of her next film, Blind, produced by Sujoy Ghosh.
