Sonam Kapoor is all set to push her limits for the first time in her forthcoming film, Players. “This is something very different from what I have done earlier. It will be my fourth year and I am more adventurous,” says Sonam, who plays a nerd in the film that releases on January 6.
The style-conscious actor has a bold look in the film, and is happy with the final result. “Earlier, I used to play the girl next door, with inherent style in me. I was trying to translate my public image on screen and figure how people would like that,” says the younger daughter of actor Anil Kapoor, who made her debut along with actor Ranbir Kapoor in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Saawariya (2007).
Incidentally, Sonam considers actor Kareena Kapoor one of the most beautiful actors in the industry and says she would love to have her as a partner, if she ever chooses to become a lesbian. “She is so beautiful. She has a family, so I hope she doesn’t mind me saying that,” says Sonam, adding. “I don’t mind doing a film like Dostana (2008). I am narcissist as an actor.”
In the last four years, Sonam has featured in films like Delhi-6 (2009), I Hate Luv Storys (2010), Aisha (2010), and Mausam (2011), but most didn’t fare well at the box-office. “I usually look at the character arc and its growth. So, even if people don’t remember my films, they will always remember my characters,” believes the actor.
