Actress Sonam Kapoor, who made her debut in 2007 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’, has had a tough time with none of her movies making a great impact at the box-office.
But the actress has regrets about the choices she has made so far.
“There are no regrets, it is all about looking at things positively and regarding everything as a part of your growth. I don't think anyone should have regrets, whether it is your personal decisions or your career choices, as you learn from them,” Sonam Kapoor told IANS.
“Being a human is about learning from your life and that's why we have been put in this world...to gain knowledge," she added.
The actress has so far acted in movies like ‘Delhi 6’, ‘Aisha’, ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, ‘Thank You’, ‘Mausam’ and ‘Players’. While ‘Delhi 6’ and ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ tasted moderate success at the box-office, her other movies flopped without a trace.
Sonam Kapoor hopes that her fortunes change with her upcoming movies ‘Raanjhnaa’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.
“I think it is better than getting no reactions. Next year is a good year; so I am looking forward to ‘Raanjhnaa’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’,” she said.
When asked if any characters resemble her in real life, she said, “I am too complicated a character to be incorporated in a film. I don't think anyone would be able to write such a complicated character like me.”
“Unfortunately I have been stereotyped as a de-glam actress. All my friends are in fashion; so they ask 'When are you doing a glamorous film? When can we give you glamorous clothes?' So I guess, other than ‘Aisha’ and’ Players’, my movies didn't have much of fashion involved,” she added.
“I played very simple girls. It is completely the opposite of my image and what people perceive me to be,” she further said.
The actress said that in ‘Raanjhnaa’ too she plays a simple desi girl.
“In ‘Raanjhnaa’, I play a Banarsi girl, who joins JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University). I think it is important to have an Indian touch, as we have been doing a lot of films influenced by the west. I like the language, story and everything of the film. I had the best time working on this film," she said.
Sonam said that she hopes to get an opportunity to act alongside the three Khans – Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, of Bollywood one fine day.
“I would love to work with all three...maybe at the same time. Whatever comes my way is good,” she said.
The actress said that she is especially keen to act in a movie directed by Aamir Khan.
“I would like Aamir to direct me. One of my favorite films is ‘Taare Zameen Par’. For me, I love him as a director. I think he has a keen eye when it comes to performances; so I would like him to give me that knowledge,” she concluded.
