Sonam’s first movie “Sawariya” was also a pickup from a short story White Nights, by Fyodor Dostoevsky', and her second “Aisha” was also inspired deeply by Jane Austin’s “Emma”. Maybe the third time down the lane “copy procedure” will prove to be lucky for the Kapoor Babe.
If Sonam manages to get the movie rolling with the female character picked up from Chauhan’s book, this will be her dream come true. An avid book lover, Sonam was heard commenting "The idea of taking a book and turning the pages I remember have been the biggest high for me. So, it was imperative for me to play something like this before I get too old. It is about modern Indian women who exist in reality but not in Hindi cinema."
The gorgeous beauty maintains her silence as to which of Anuja Chauhan’s books are going to hit the director’s eye, The Zoya Factor or Battle for Bittora. Claiming on the roles she has sashayed in the past, She proudly holds her head high, as she has managed to play a woman with real mantle on the celluloid screen, “I could play a little bit of modern Indian girl in Delhi 6 and Aisha. Both were Delhi girls. One was from Chandni Chowk while the other was from Defence colony and both girls exist,” stated the Kapoor beauty.
Daddy’s favorite girl
She has always been the Apple of her father’s eye, and has always been pampered by him to the hilt.
The girl proudly exclaims out loud, about the two books being considered for the Modern Indian Girl role, "I was offered both those characters but nothing came of it and I was getting very irritated so I became shameless and asked my dad to pay for it. It is imperative for me to play today's Indian girl. It's very difficult to find characters like these in the film industry, to find women with shades, but Anuja writes them and I want to play them before I get too old for them."
Well, Sonam you were gorgeous as the girl-next door in “I hate luv storys” , will you be able to spin the same magic for the public as the “Modern Indian Girl”.
