 Girls' girl

Anuj Kumar engages Sonam Kapoor in a candid chat

Sonam Kapoor is a great example of how perceptions are fickle in the entertainment industry.

Somebody who was praised as the next big thing in the industry after her first two films was quickly reduced to a brand-conscious papa's girl who is seen more on fashion magazine covers than celluloid.

That three of her four films didn't do well at the box office made it worse. Now as she promises to make a statement with Thank You followed by Mausam, Sonam Kapoor presents her point of view.

Excerpts from an interview:

Of late you have become more of a model and less of an actor.

Am I? I have done only four to five brand endorsements, three to four magazine covers, but for some strange reason my covers stay in somebody's head. I guess that it has something to do with the face. I am not as public and vocal about myself as somebody else. I don't know what it is. I take it as a compliment.

For somebody who set out to become an actor of substance, these things become an unnecessary distraction.

I agree. After Sanwaryia the perception about me was that she is a very shy Indian girl. Then after Delhi 6 it was like she is a cheeky girl, an actor who can put in a performance. Then after I Hate Luv Storys it changed to 'Oh! She is a complete commercial actress' and after Aisha I am being considered a fashion bimbo. I take it as a compliment because people have started identifying me with the character of the film. It shows they believed in the character, which is a cool thing. May be after Thank You people will think I am a young wife and after Mausam they will identify me as the shy Muslim girl' Maybe it is my acting.

Your fraternity is not taking this point of view very seriously. If "Koffee With Karan" could be taken seriously, all the directors and actors put you and Deepika Padukone as the last two on their list of competent actors.

I don't know why. I can't take everything that is said about me very seriously. I don't cosy up to directors and actors. Sometimes it goes in your favour and sometimes it doesn't. When you are not linked with actors and directors you can work with them in future!

You sparred with Abhay Deol when he criticised "Aisha".

The controversy was between dad (Anil Kapoor) and him. He has the right to be disappointed with his performance or the film but to speak about a senior who has supported you so much in the industry in an uncharitable way is a little unfair. But I guess Abhay is a little impulsive and that's also the best thing about him as well.

Were you happy with the film?

I was very happy with the film because the kind of response I got from young girls and kids is what I was looking for. My fan following has increased because my fans are mostly female.

Why do you say that?

I know it is mostly female (she repeats it thrice) and I am proud of it. I am more of an actor somebody aspires to be than somebody's wet dream!

How is Thank You going to help, for in Anees Bazmi's films female actors are largely showpieces?

He is family. It is an out and out comedy and I wanted to work with Akshay Kumar. I wanted to work with Bobby Deol, Suniel Shetty and Irrfan Khan.

That's how you sign films!

I am also doing a Mausam. It is about balancing things. If you do a Mausam you have to balance it with a Thank You and Players.

Is it as scientific?

I don't mean it is scientific. Contrary to popular belief, I didn't start with art films. Those were big films with big banners. Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Black and Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra had Rang De Basanti behind him.

After making some mature choices, you are behaving like all young actors who want everything in their platter.

It's fun. I am a young girl and I want to do makeup but at the same time I know I can go without makeup and do a Mausam. I can do both a character and a role, but who says acting is easy in commercial cinema? Thank You is not my space and was more difficult for me than Mausam. You don't need to be a pseudo intellectual and don't go for it. Whether you like it or not some of our greatest films, like Sholay and Mr India, were hardcore commercial films. Sanwariya and Delhi 6 didn't even get good reviews.

What's the good word

Thank You, the word: I am always apologising and thanking people.

Candid with the media: Media needs stories and I make a good copy.

Brand conscious: It is flattering to know that people feel whatever I wear is branded. Right now, people will obviously believe that it's Dolce & Gabana but they don't know that it's a rip off.

Losing pounds of weight: Everything is easy when you are young. You feel can always bounce back. You are invincible.
