Sonam Kapoor, in another interview to Mumbai Mirror
IT'S NOT ME, IT'S MY DAD
Sonam Kapoor spills the beans on the rapprochement with Abhay Deol, says she has always been in touch with him
On Saturday, Mumbai Mirror reported how Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol were all set to work together yet again in Rajkumar Santoshi's next. And while, many thought that this was a big step for the young actors since their fallout after the release of Aisha, Sonam herself revealed that it wasn't her but her father who was upset with Abhay's unsavoury remarks about him. In fact, Sonam told Mumbai Mirror that she always thought Abhay was 'the most talented actor' and that they had stayed in touch even when 'he was in Spain shooting for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'.
"He said something weird about my dad. I didn't like it. But to be honest, it's between my dad and Abhay," said the same actress who had earlier expressed her shock over Abhay's comments about Anil Kapoor.
The actress who clearly stays separate from her father's affairs also stated that being a star kid has not really helped her in her career. "My dad is crazy. He thinks I am headstrong. But I always have this thing...I have to do everything on my own," she added.
But when it comes to dressing (and that is one thing she does really well), Sonam is totally dependent on her sister Rhea. "My Players look is completely Rhea. I gave her a brief that I want to look sexy but not 'nanga'. I am all covered up in the film and yet I look sexy. The entire credit goes to Rhea," said the actress.
While her style quotient has remained a constant, the roles she has played have been extremely diverse. From intense drama in her debut Saawariya to a rom-com I Hate Luv Storys and now the action packed Players, was the choice intentional? "No one has ever asked me this before," said a surprised Sonam and added, "I love the fact that directors feel I can do everything. I'm glad to get all kind of roles. I get to wear Indian clothes as well as western. It's exhilarating. I have multiple personality so I can play multiple genres. And though I am not very intelligent, there is a little bit of thought that goes behind my choice of films."
