The Raanjhanaa actor feels men sometimes bring negativity into women’s life
Bollywood’s chirpy, young and fashionable actor Sonam Kapoor loves being surrounded by her ilk and feels men sometimes “bring negativity” into women’s lives. The 27-year-old, who has played feminine roles in films like Aisha and I Hate Luv Storys enjoys the company of women. “I love girls, I surround myself with only women. I think men bring negativity into your life sometimes. Only women work with me,” said Sonam in an interview.
She may not have been wise in choosing her roles, but the actor has proved that she never goes wrong in making style statements. She admits it’s a challenge to innovate winning looks every time she steps out. “It is a challenge and that is why you have great products to help you and I have great people to help me look good. When you see me normally, I don’t look so good,” she said.
Terming herself a bit “self-obsessed”, Sonam admitted that it is her sister, Rhea Kapoor, who gives styling tips to her dad, actor Anil Kapoor. “My sister is really good at that. I am really self-obsessed; so I only concentrate on myself,” the 27-year-old confessed.
While tackling a tough work schedule, Sonam stays fit by following a strict food regime. “I eat right, I have a nutritionist who takes care of me. I have people who are constantly firing me to drink enough water. It’s about eating right, drinking enough water and being happy in general…surrounding yourself with positive, happy people,” she said.
As far as acting is concerned, she will next be seen in Raanjhanaa, Bhaag Mikha Bhaag, the Khoobsurat remake and Yash Raj Films’ untitled project. She says her endeavour is to be different on screen every time. “Raanjhanaa is a very real character. She is a serious person. I don’t think one character has also been similar to my last character. The characters that I have in Raanjhanaa, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Khoobsurat and YRF’s untitled film, all are very different. They are about girls with incredibly different characters and journeys,” said Sonam.
Raanjhanaa will see her teaming up with southern star Dhanush and she said: “I love Aishwarya and Dhanush. They are the most amazing couple. I can call Dhanush a really good friend now. He is so respectful and modest and an incredible actor.”
Is Sonam ready to step into the South Indian film industry?
“I would love to do a Southern film. I saw how tough it was for Dhanush, so I am scared about it,” she said.
