Actress Sonam Kapoor's daring bikini shot in "Bewakoofiyaan" may have raised some eyebrows, but her father Anil Kapoor was unfazed. In fact, he said it would get the film a "good opening".

"He knew about that (the bikini shot)! My dad is an artist and he is very open-minded...actually he was the one who encouraged me to become an actress. He didn't say anything, he just said the film will get a good opening," Sonam said at a press conference for the film's promotion here Friday.

The tall actress, who was once on the heavier side on the weighing scale, says she didn't have to go through much stress and strain to look fit enough for a bikini scene.

"I didn't have to work hard because I am playing a regular girl in the film. I have a tendency to put on weight but my routine was the same for this film. You will not see me as a movie star in this movie as I am playing a regular girl," she said.

While there has been a lot of talk on whether Sonam has been able to pull off the two-piece garment, she says she always knew about the scene and she was comfortable with it.

"When I signed the film, it was my idea. I was briefed that there is a pool there and I have to wear swimsuit. I said my body is lean, and it is thin on the waist...so let's just show that. If you see the shot...unlike the shots in films like 'Dhoom' or 'Race', cameras are not panned on the body.

"It's a normal shot where I am wearing a swimsuit and jump into the pool," she added.

Directed by Nupur Asthana, "Bewakoofiyaan" also features Ayushmann Khurrana.

    here is my take on this...Bikinis require a certain body structure..otherwise it doesn't look good!

    Living in America have seen plenty Bikinis if you choose to wear one have the right body type!

    What's big deal in bikni.guys just grow up.
    Mr anil kapoor is a fabulous actor and offcourse he gave her genes of acting to her daughter sonam too which she definately showed up in movies like raanjhana and i hate luv story.
    May be she didn't give to much hit movies and her talent is still under wrapped sheets. But she has do more movies like raanjhana and IHLS to groom up her talent
    and no doubt mr anil kappor is broad minded father.

    ok seriously who wants to see that?

    she does not have a bikini body...not every actress needs to show up semi naked to gain popularity

    Vidya Balan is the best actress on screen and is proud of her curves..love her for that!!


    wonder who sonam got rid of her stretch marks! she has them after her weight loss

    That's more of a publicity. It's not a big deal wearing bikini in a pool !! But she is lacking talent so has to do this for publicity. She's beautiful and sharp tongued.

    I saw the trailer of this movie, and I saw the bikini shot. It was not that risqu. It was just a scene in a pool. Nothing to sweat about.
