Sonam Kapoor, who will be seen
sharing the screen space with Tamil star Dhanush in
Raanjhnaa, says she feels like a newcomer in front of the
Kolaveri singer despite her seven-year-old career in
Sonam essays the role of a student from Benaras who comes
to Delhi to join Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in the love
story, directed by Anand L Rai.
"I am still a newcomer and he has worked a many more
years than I have in Indian film Industry. It is his debut
Bollywood project but I wouldn't call him a new comer. I think
he is one of the most brilliant actors and he is definitely
better actor than me. I feel like a novice when I work with
him," Sonam told PTI.
Ranjhaana will hit theatres on June 28, 2013.
The 27-year-old actress started her acting career with
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya in 2007 opposite Ranbir
Kapoor. The film did not do well at the box-office but Sonam
was noticed for her screen presence.
Sonam says her goal now is to be a part of interesting
projects that would satisfy the actress in her.
"I had lost my way for sometime so I need to do things
that I am happy with. It's not about being the number one
heroine or money. It's about doing roles that I enjoy. My
biggest ambition is happiness," she said.
The actress is quite busy with her back-to-back projects
including Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Khubsoorat remake and
filmmaker Nupur Asthana's Yash Raj project.
"I don't shoot two films at the same time. I finish one
character and get into another character because I change my
look for every film. It's difficult but I enjoy doing that,"
Sonam would be reprising the role played by Rekha in the
remake of Khubsoorat and the actress is ready to face
comparisons with the legendary diva.
"I am glad that I got the opportunity to play a character
that is so vibrant and alive. I am Anil Kapoor's daughter so I
am always compared with legends. It is a part and parcel of my
life. The film is not the same story at all. We have just
taken the spirit of the girl. It is the spirit of the
character that I want to capture," she said.
