Sonam Kapoor raises a middle finger in ‘Players’!
The Mausam actor has so far stuck to roles that are soft-spoken, demure and generally very ladylike but in Players she has apparently shed the good girl tag
There is definitely some karmic connection between Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor; they are both from B-town’s respected filmi families, they made their acting debuts together, they share a bitter-sweet relationship which they are vocal about and they have both raised their middle fingers in their forthcoming films, Players and Rockstar respectively. But this one is about Sonam and how she has given up on the coy, girl-next-door avatar of Mausam for a rebellious and edgy persona in Abbas-Mustan’s thriller. If the trailer is anything to go by, her Players co-star, Bipasha Basu will be mostly seen adding the sizzle quotient in her red bikini whereas Sonam would be seen doing some edgy stunts. One stunt that particularly caught our attention was where the Aisha girl raises a middle finger to all those who think that ladies were bad at the wheels. Sonam not only maneuvers a speeding car but also deftly parks it in a cramped space, something which probably only Superstar Rajinikanth could have done. While the scene is well shot and all that, helping her steal the limelight from Bips, we aren’t totally sure if papa Kapoor would be happy to see his pretty li’l princess raising a middle finger, that too on the big screen.
