After hits like Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (both 2013), actor Sonam Kapoor’s last film, Bewakoofiyaan, didn’t perform too well at the box office. The actor, however, remains unperturbed with the market figures.

“It was an average performer. We didn’t expect it to perform better than it did,” says the 28-year-old. “It was a small budget film and was appreciated. It did do the business it was supposed to do. Everybody made money out of it,” she adds.
Sonam is confident about her upcoming films. “I will only do those films that add a new joy to my life and to my job,” says Sonam, who has recently finished shooting for the remake of Khubsoorat (1980). Meanwhile, she is keeping her fingers crossed for her brother, Harshvardhan’s, Bollywood debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next.

“I’m very excited. He (Rakeysh) is a brilliant director. If there’s one man who can make him (Harshvardhan) give his maiden performance, it’s Rakeysh,” says the actor.
