The New-Age Khoobsurat Girl


Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is known for her impeccable dressing sense. Draped in a bright saree by Manish Arora with golden heart print motifs all over, Sonam carefully chose matching heart-shaped earrings by Yves Saint Laurent from Viange. A low bun and a gold clutch completed Sonam’s look. She was in the capital to launch the 60th edition of fashion glossy, Filmfare.
A self-proclaimed voracious reader and always hungry for news, Sonam puts forth, “Times are changing and so has the quality of social media and entertainment. Celebrities are becoming more accessible, so film magazines and newspapers are also moving in that direction. These days it is almost like having front-row seats to exclusive parties, having access to more candid-than-ever pictures and engaging in heart-to-heart with your idols.”
It has been a busy year for the actress as she was a part of several big projects including Bhaag Milkha Bhaag opposite Farhan Akhtar, Ranjhanaa, which marked Dhanush’s Bollywood debut, and is now all set for the big banner — a Yash Raj film alongside dishy Ayushmann Khuranna and a remake of the 1980 hit film starring Rekha Khoobsurat.
The remake is being produced by Sonam’s father, actor Anil Kapoor, and will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh. “The film is set in contemporary times, does not ape the original blockbuster and hardly draws parallel with Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s film. We had the rights to the film, took the spirit and charm of the character and tried presenting it in a completely new setting; something that youngsters can relate to,” points out the chirpy actor.
Sonam and Vicky Donor star Ayushmann Khurrana will be the next big onscreen jodi in Yash Raj Films’ yet untitled film. “The film is a love story in times of recession. It’s more of an urban setting in this film and is being directed by Nupur Asthana. Ayushmann is a very talented actor and there is so much to learn from him. I am looking forward to this release,” she says.
The actress, who is deeply attached to her father, is hoping the audience will give a thumbs up to the upcoming TV series 24.
“24 is the Indian adaptation of the hit international television series of the same name in which dad is making his television debut. I have seen the international show as well and quite liked it. We hope people back home love the desi version featuring some of the veterans of the film industry and are able to relate to it,” signs off Sonam.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
