The masakali girl seems to be all over — the screen, hoardings, wallpapers… As the lady revels in all the attention, she categorically denies talking about anything but Delhi 6.
“I have a policy. I don’t talk about anything except my current release. I never spoke about Delhi 6, during Saawariya and I will not talk about any other film right now,” said the lady when asked to verify the news that she is appearing in her father’s home production Emma, based on Jane’s Austen’s popular novel by the same name.
Well then back to Delhi 6. The movie’s music is already topping chartbusters, especially masakali. Is that her favourite too? “It is such a great album. I love all the tracks,” says Sonam and tells a little more about the movie.
“It’s a family entertainment. Such a film has come after long time. It doesn’t show the ‘yo’ culture, but India at its best.” The Indianness in the film is quite evident from Sonam’s look too but the lady calls it her Delhi look. “I noticed Delhi girls are very cautious about jewellery, chudiyan and silver stuff and they wear prints too. We got all of this in the film. I have lots of friends in Delhi and they tell me that ‘this is exactly how we dress’.
Sonam along with her mother Sunita and designer Anamika Khanna scanned the bazaars of Delhi to source Sonam’s wardrobe in the movie and interestingly, off it too. “Not just for this film, I pick most of my Indian attire from Delhi only,” says the young actress and calls Delhi, “the fashion capital.” She buys her bangles from Kinari bazaar in Chandni Chowk.
From the leading lady to a doting daughter, does papa Anil Kapoor advise his beti on films? “He just asks me to put my best and never step on anyone’s toe.”
So, anything she would like to imbibe from him? “Being his daughter, there’s nothing that I will say no to… if the script will demand for it.” Point taken, Ms Kapoor!
