Sonam Kapoor is never the one to mince words. While her contemporaries Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are bagging plum projects in Hollywood, the actor says that she, too, has been looking for work abroad.

When asked about her Hollywood plans, she says that she will only pick up something worth her while. “It’s not like I haven’t gone abroad and tried to get work there. There is amazing work happening there. But be it Bollywood, Hollywood or China… it has to be something that can help me grow,” she says, adding, “I’m really happy for Priyanka and Deepika. They are doing great work. In fact, I love watching Quantico, I am addicted to it.”

The actor says that she would love to do meaningful films, irrespective of the language. “Whether it’s Chinese, Tamil, English, or Iranian, as long as there is something that I can do in it, I will go ahead. It has to be worth the effort that I’ll put in,” says the 30-year-old.

The actor, who was applauded for her performance in her last film Neerja, says that she still has a long way to go. “Dilli bahut door hai. There should never be a final moment. There has to be a longing to learn. You should always be a student. I am greedy for growth. But I am also very happy with where I’m right now,” she says.

The actor says that it’s her father, actor Anil Kapoor, who inspires her to keep improving herself. “This is my dad’s upbringing. He says that I can do better. Everyone is saying that I have performed my best in my last film, but I feel that I can do much better than this. I will try very hard,” she says.
