Sonam Kapoor and her clothes have always garnered utmost attention – be it red carpet events or film premiers. But the actor has qualms in admitting that she loves clothes and that she’d ‘rather people talk about her clothes than personal life’. In an interview with HT Café, Sonam talks about Cannes, clothes and her slate of upcoming films.
What do you like the most about attending the festival?
I am wearing some amazing clothes so I am quite excited about that. But the best thing is just the energy. I make sure to have fun because if you aren’t having fun that shows in the way you look and the way you dress. I don’t feel the pressure because I am walking for a cosmetic giant but I am sure it would have been different if it were for a film.
So what is your plan of action for your stay there?
This time, Cannes for me will not be such a grand affair because I am hardly there for three days. I rush in, do my red carpet appearances and rush out. I have absolutely no time for parties and all of that. It is a very rushed visit.
Do you think there is too much scrutiny on the clothes that celebrities wear at international events?
I have been lucky as far as my clothes are concerned. But I’d rather people talk about my clothes, so I am fine with that too.
Suddenly, you have a lot of films that you are simultaneously working on…
Yes. I took a year off after Neerja so it was high time I got back to the sets. I have three films this year and to be honest, I am scared. I have finished the first schedule of Padman and then I move to the Sanjay Dutt biopic and hen Veere Di Wedding.
Veeri Di Wedding is being touted as the first film on girl-bonding. Is that true?
Absolutely. It is a very commercial film and in India, we can make films that are for women and about women. Why do women oriented films have to be hard-hitting for them to make an impact? It’s a genuine film about four women and there is no lead role. I am really excited to work with Kareena (Kapoor Khan), Swara (Bhaskar) and Shikha (Talsania). They are all wonderfully talented women and actors. We will also have Rhea (Kapoor, sister) so I am sure we are going to have an amazing time. After Aisha and Khoobsurat, I am looking forward to working with my sister as these are the films that have me a solid fan base of girls.
