Being a star kid has its positives, but the pressure to perform that comes with it can be challenging, says Sonam Kapoor, daughter of actor Anil Kapoor.

However, no matter how challenging the situation is, the actress admits she is proud to be his daughter and says she has learnt a lot from him.

"It is much easier in the industry for a star kid, but everyone has their own struggle. It is easier to join (the industry) and people look at you differently, but then they also come with their own baggage of comparisons," Sonam told IANS.

"I think it is a privilege to be Anil Kapoor's daughter because he is such a good artist and it is great to be associated with him in any way," she added.

After making her debut with "Saawariya", the actress has essayed integral parts in movies like "Delhi-6", "Aisha", "Players" and "Mausam".

Sonam says she would love to be a part of a remake of any of her father's past films, provided she gets to play the role her dad essayed.

"I like a lot of his films... as long as I get to play the hero! I love 'Lamhe' and 'Mr. India', I don't mind playing Sridevi's character there... I love 'Tezaab' and 'Ram Lakhan'. If I get to do any remakes of films from the 1980s an 1990s, where it was more male-dominated, I would rather be the hero," she said.

While a sequel to "Mr. India" is in the making, Sonam says she will consider it if the script is exciting enough.

"It all depends on the script and the role. I never do anything as a favour for anyone," she said.

Meanwhile, direction too is on the charts for Sonam, but she says it will happen in a few years.

"Eventually I will direct a movie. But right now I will concentrate on my acting," said the 27-year-old, who is eagerly waiting for her films "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" and "Raanjhaana" to release next year.
