Sonam Kapoor tells it like it is. She's known to be honest and sometimes labeled brash for her honesty.
Sonam admits to being good friends with most of her co-stars, including Shahid Kapoor with whom she will soon be seen in Mausam. There were reports some time back about the two not being on very friendly terms.
This is what she told Daily Bhaskar in an interview: "I didn't know Shahid at all before we started shooting. So, maybe we came in with pre-conceived ideas about each other. But once we understood each other better, we realised that we are far different from what each had imagined. I'm glad that it was all sorted out, as I have found a 3 am friend in him!"
What gets tongues wagging are that this confession-gushing comes after reports have done the rounds of the two not being able get along at all.
"I think most people here have an underlying agenda. They double-talk and simply don't have the guts to stick by what they say. But it has stopped bothering me now. I'm not here to make friends. That's why Shahid is special, because he's such a rarity," she added.
While the leading lady of Pankaj Kapur's directorial venture Mausam was all praises about her co-star of the film. She couldn't say the same about another Kapoor - Ranbir Kapoor.
"Too much has happened now to call him my friend. I don't think of him as my friend anymore," admits Sonam. "I won't regret turning down any offers with him. I don't care if people consider me a snob or arrogant; that's a tag people earn here for being honest, so I'm okay with it."
