Her Journey From Rom-Com , Family Entertainer to Biopic
When Sonam Kapoor was asked about the transition to biopic from other genre to another like rom-com, family entertainer, this is what the actress said –
“Well, its’ a biopic but films like Khoobsurat, Raanjhana or Prem Ratan also require the same effort. You need to learn your lines and act. They are just different genres. So I think every film comes with a different set of challenges. And every film requires a performance. I have tried my best with every film and Neerja as well.”
About the Film Neerja
When Sonam Kapoor was asked about “Neerja” being banned in Pakistan, the actress said –
“Neerja has not been banned in Pakistan as of yet nd I really don’t think there should be any objections towards Neerja because the film hasn’t come out. Moreover, we have made Neerja extremely honestly, have tried to stick to the true story as close to it as possible. Everybody is involved. We have made it as honest and as amazing as we can so that we respect the wishes of her family.”
“I am believer in God. I read Hanuman Chalisa as a ritual” ~ Sonam Kapoor
When asked whether she believes in God, Sonam replied that she is god fearing.
“I am believer in God. I read Hanuman Chalisa as a ritual but it has nothing to do with luck and all. I believe in destiny. I believe in God’s grace. I pray everyday and I think I am blessed by life. I have a rudraksh where I say Om Namah Shivaay. I am a Shiv Bhakt. I truly believe in God and respect every religion. Honestly I don’t have any ‘lucky charms’. I think you create your own luck and you work hard or work honestly and you believe in the grace of God, then good things happen to good people.”
Sonam’s Biggest Fear is….
Recently, we saw how all the celebrities including Shahid Kapoor and Salman Khan came in support of Sonam Kapoor by making a video on their biggest fear. This is what Sonam shared when she was asked about her biggest fears –
“I cannot sleep alone. I am afraid of the dark. I have an overactive imagination. So I always used to believe that there’s this monster going to come and get me.(laughs) You know how children are?” Ask her how has it changed now and she quips, “It’s the same. That will never change. I still can’t sleep alone. I have to keep that one light on.”
“I love Ageing” – Sonam Kapoor
Sonam Kapoor loves growing up. She doesn’t see it is a bane but as a boon. Here’s what she said –
“I think of being inconsequential. Of being somebody who is just loved for her beauty; I think as an actor I was loved only for my beauty but eventually beauty fades. But talent never goes away. I believe I have earned every line on my face. Age has given me wisdom and I love ageing. So for me that’s not a fear but my fear is becoming somebody who is afraid of growing up.”
