Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is known for her distinct sense of style and fashion, says the 1960s was a golden period for Indian cinema, and she would love it if it comes back.

"I can only say that the 1960s was the golden period of Indian cinema and I hope that time comes back again," the 27-year-old said here Friday at the screening of "Bombay Talkies (2013)", a film made to pay tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema.

Sonam says she is humbled to be a small part of Indian cinema.

"My family has been a part of the industry since the time of 'Mughal-e-Azam' and I am very excited that I am also a very small part of it. Like it is said 'Jiyo hazaaron saal', that is the best thing to say (for Indian cinema's 100 years)," Sonam said.

Sonam is the daughter of actor Anil Kapoor and grand daughter of late film producer Surinder Kapoor, who was an assistant director on the epic film "Mughal E Azam."

He later produced films like "Ek Shriman Ek Shrimati", "Woh Saat Din" and "Judaai".

Sonam made her Bollywood debut with "Saawariya" in 2007.

    We have many good films nowadays but I guess those get overshadowed by big budget masala films with item numbers and pathetic actors.

    Sonam has good style and is great for modeling, but she can't act. The first sentence alone draws attention to her fashion sense than acting. She should stick to what she does best because she really hasn't improved in the five or six years she's been in the industry.

    We have lots of talent which can bring the good cinema back if people discard those useless movies and don't make them hit !! Movies like kahani , burfi , Vicky doner Lagaan , zindagi an milegi , etc can become hit too so if only people stop watching those item number stupid movies then only it's possible to get all good cinema.
