Sonam sets the record straight

The thing with Sonam Kapoor is that given the characters she has portrayed on screen, it becomes apparent that somewhere people have misunderstood her personality as her character’s personality.

However when Mili was being written, the character was truly a little too close to home… The wacky, crazy girl that everyone has seen in ‘Khoobsurat’ is very close to what Sonam has been all her life.

“This is the first time that a character was written specifically keeping me in mind, and Rhea and Shashank did it very sneakily and I got really angry with them when I read the first draft as I thought that the world is going to think of me as a clumsy crazy girl!” points out the pretty lass. However, her younger sister, the clever Rhea said something to the tune of ‘Well, as long as they don’t think of you as a rich girl with Daddy’s credit card…’ “Because that’s what people started thinking about me after ‘Aisha’,” shrieks Sonam.

“It is completely the opposite of who I am as I have stopped taking money from my Dad since I was 17 and I definitely don’t want to get people married.” So there, no more mixing up Sonam’s real character with her onscreen characters, please!
