After a series of duds in the last three years, Sonam Kapoor has managed to make a mark with back-to-back hits — Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag — this year. Even as she continues to make news for her fashion-conscious avatar, she is also making headlines for her marriage plans. Her father Anil
Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor looked her stylist best at the launch of Fall Holiday '13 collection. Tommy Hilfiger hosted the high fashion event that was graced by the Bollywood beauty
Kapoor went on record saying how her mother has set the criteria for an ideal son-in-law.
He also added that Sonam is free to marry anyone of her choice. We talk to the 28-year-old actor about her marriage plans, father’s comments, new home, a possible clothing line and upcoming films.
According to your father, your mother has set the criteria for what she wants in her son-in-law.
I’m a little too young to marry or settle down. I am like, ‘Not right now, please’ (laughs). It’s so freaky.
Interestingly, your father said that you can marry a Chinese or Japanese man if you want to.
(Laughs) I don’t think he meant that. I think my father wanted to say that I can marry anyone of any ethnicity as long as I am happy. He said that he isn’t judgmental about any religion, ethnicity or anything else. He is okay with me marrying anyone who will keep me happy.
We hear that you have bought a new place for yourself and might move out soon.
I am looking at buying something, but I haven’t done it (yet). I have had a very good year as far as work is concerned, but I am definitely not moving out of my parents’ place because I like the comfort of my home. I am finalising and looking at something (buying a house) very seriously as an option right now. But, I am not moving out.
Is it true that you were supposed to do Homi Adajania’s next, which Deepika Padukone is doing now?
I don’t talk about the films that I am not doing. But according to me, Arjun (Kapoor) and Deepika are the best choices for the film. I don’t have anything to do with the film now. I really love Homi as a director and would definitely love to work with him in the future.
Are you and your sister Rhea actually launching a clothing line?
That is something I would like to do, but there’s nothing right now that I can discuss. Nothing has really taken shape at the moment (about the clothing line). But I would love to do that for sure.
We spotted you at a fashion event (hosted by a fashion portal, farfetch.com) a couple of days ago. Is a new fashion tie-up on the cards?
No. My designer Cecilia Morelli (Parikh), who owns the store Le Mill, is a really good friend of mine and she asked me to host a party for her because she has won an award. I just couldn’t say no since I love her a lot.
What’s your next acting assignment?
I am leaving for Rajasthan for a 20-day schedule to start work on the Khubsoorat (1980) remake.
