Looks like it’s an eye-to-eye battle.
Sonam’s got homework
The news that Sonam Kapoor will play Rekha’s role from her 1980 hit Khubsoorat in her father Anil Kapoor’s remake, is setting tongues wagging. But now, we’ve heard that she plans to watch the classic film a few times before starting the shoot next year. So, once she is through with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Raanjhana, she will get down and concentrate only on the Khoobsurat remake, produced by her sister Rhea, who earlier teamed up with Sonam on Aisha (2010), which was a success at the box-office. We have heard the Kapoor sisters don’t want to leave anything to chance with the remake
