"I am scared because the whole point of the film is to capture the spirit of that character because the story has been completely changed. She did it so beautifully and I hope I can do even 10 percent of what she did," Sonam said here in an interview.
Sonam also plans to make it contemporary.
"But at the same time, I hope to make it more current...like how young girls are right now. Let's see how that works out," she said.
The 27-year-old describes it a complete chick-flick.
"It is going to be very 'Mills & Boon'ish. It's for girls, I make movies for girls, it's a chick-flick," Sonam said.
The remake is being produced by Sonam's father, actor Anil Kapoor, and will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
