Much has been written about Pankaj Kapur’s directorial debut

“That’s half-baked news,” says Sonam. “My character in the movie is not that of a ‘mature woman’, as reported. I very much play a girl of my age, though her character’s unlike anything I have played earlier. My look is certainly different in the film but it’s not at all ‘old’.”

Sonam, who is currently touring India to promote her film


, which releases on Friday, has spent the last two months shooting for


in Scotland, where she has been “cut off from the gossip in India”. “I really enjoyed being in my own space in Scotland. It was a tough shoot and I hardly had the time to relax between shots, but I can’t complain because it’s the role of a lifetime.”

Not willing to divulge much about her role, Sonam says that


is a “classical love story.” “It’s a sensitive, simple and intensely romantic love story. I can’t thank Mr Pankaj Kapur for casting me on a whim for this role, though he had auditioned a number of girls. It’s a very challenging role, and I actually cried the first time I read the script.”
