If she played a high-on-fashion girl in "Aisha", she even essayed a simple girl in "Delhi-6" and "Mausam". Actress Sonam Kapoor, who will now be seen in her forthcoming film "Raanjhanaa", says she considers it a big achievement that she has escaped being typecast in the film industry.
"I don't compare my life with the success ratio. I am not getting typecast and that's my biggest achievement. I want to be able to do different roles and I have consciously decided it and not done typical roles," Sonam told IANS.

The actor also added that he did a lot of preparation for the role.
"I did a lot of preparation for the role. I did voice preparation and also worked on diction.I worked on my physical srtucture as well," he said.

"Namaste! Please sit down, sit down," Chan told the over-enthusiastic audience, which stood up and went clickety-click at the packed Siri Fort Auditorium as he took to the stage.
He said it was "so exciting" to be here, and he felt "so honoured".
