Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor would love to play legendary actress Meena Kumari in case her biopic is made because she is fascinated by real characters with some flaws.

"I would like to play Meena Kumari...she had such a tragic life," said Sonam known for playing different roles in films like "Delhi-6", "Mausam", "Aisha" and "I hate Luv Storys" among others.

Meena Kumari, one of the most talented and successful actresses of her time, was tagged as "Tragedy Queen" for playing such roles in films like "Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam". Her personal life was not a bed of roses either - she had to deal with a troubled marriage and alcohol addiction and died of liver cirrohsis at the age of 39.

"I want to play any one who has a nice character arch and is flawed, I would love to play such roles. It is because they are human. I am very flawed myself...I want to play a real person," said Sonam.

In last six years, Sonam has worked in about a dozen of films, but it is her recent release "Raanjhanaa", in which she plays a simple girl from Benaras, that helped her get her due at the box office.

Of course, she is enjoying the unexpected positive response.

"The response has been good. I am very happy. When I was working, I didn't think I will get as much appreciation. I was working hard and was putting in a lot of effort. I really enjoyed working with (director) Aanand L. Rai. He is my favourite director," said the 28-year-old.

Also, viewers enjoyed her chemistry with southern actor Dhanush in the "Raanjhanaa".

"He is a good actor and a good person as well. When that combination comes, it suits people a lot. A nice performer is liked by people," she said.

Meanwhile, the actress is excited about her role in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", where she plays a small part.
