Fashionista Sonam Kapoor is presently working hard on how to dress down. The actress, known more for her style statements, is preparing to go de-glam to essay the role of a village girl in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
- a biopic on Milkha Singh. (Pics: Sonam scores a gender bending fashion hit)
Though the shooting of the film started earlier this year, Sonam Kapoor was not part of it. She will join the unit in August. The actress is excited not just because she will be shooting sans make-up and designer label but also because of the fact that she will get to visit the India-Pakistan border.

Sonam said, "I have never been to the Indo-Pak border before and shooting there will be an experience for me. I am very excited to start shooting. I have been working hard to play the character of a village girl." (Pics: Priyanka Chopra copies Sonam Kapoor)
She has dressed simply in her earlier films like Delhi 6
and a bit in Mausam
. And now, the star feels this will be real stark, as she has not gone so rustic and simple before on screen. (Pics: Sonam Kapoor shines in Alexander McQueen)
Though her co-star Farhan Akhtar has interacted with Flying Sikh Milkha Singh as preparations for the shoot, Sonam Kapoor is yet to meet him and his family members. Her character is depicted as bringing about a big change in Milkha Singh's life.
