It wasn't a dream start for Sonam Kapoor in Bollywood, with most of her films only doing average business at the box office. The unfazed actress, however, looks at everything in a positive way and considers it all a part of her growth.

"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 told IANS in an exclusive interview.

"Being a human is about learning from your life and that's why we have been put in this gain knowledge," she added.

Daughter of veteran actor Anil Kapoor, Sonam made her Bollywood debut with 2007 film "Saawariya" and has since been part of movies like "Delhi-6", "Aisha", "I Hate Luv Storys", "Thank You", "Mausam" and "Players", though most of them failed to garner their expected success at the box office.

The actress is, however, undeterred and is now eagerly looking forward to her two new films, "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" and "Raanjhnaa". Both the films release next year.

"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.

Though the 25-year-old got a chance to play diverse roles in a career span of five years, Sonam feels none of them was even close to her real life personality.

"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," she said.

"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," added the actress, who is otherwise known as the fashion icon of Bollywood.

"I played very simple girls. It is completely the opposite of my image and what people perceive me to be."

She will once again be seen playing a simple Indian girl in "Raanjhnaa" too.

"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 is also keen on getting an opportunity to work with the three Khans of Bollywood - Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan.

"I would love to work with all three...maybe at the same time. Whatever comes my way is good. I would like Aamir to direct me. One of my favourite films is 'Taare Zameen Par'," she said.

"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 added.

As I have previously commented about Sonam, that if she was not a daughter of Anil Kapoor, Sonam would struggle to find work in TV serials let alone working in Bollywood movies because Sonam is ordinary looking with mediocre acting skills!
