Style diva Sonam Kapoor is all set to impress the audience with her quirky act in the upcoming film KHOOBSURAT, which is a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 hit film starring actress Rekha in the lead role though Sonam’s KHOOBSURAT is set in the backdrop of a ‘royal’ family. The film is said to be a modern-day remake of the cult rom-com.
The first trailer of the film, produced by Disney and Anil Kapoor Productions, was launched on Monday. In KHOOBSURAT, Sonam Kapoor would be seen as a physiotherapist called in for the recovery of Prosenjit Chatterjee. Just as Rekha was a misfit in her sister’s family in the original KHOOBSURAT, likewise Sonam is a misfit in the royal family where she is the doctor on duty. Interestingly, the film gives the feel of Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway’s PRINCESS’ DIARY with Rekha’s KHOBBSURAT’S storyline, with an Indian touch to it!
Meanwhile, buzz is that Sonam Kapoor who essays a role of a physiotherapist in Disney’s KHOOBSURAT went all out to get under the skin of her character – the actress trained under a local physiotherapist to better understand the practice to make the movements on screen look more authentic as she is seen tending to her patients in her upcoming film. According to sources close to the film, Sonam also spent her free time reading up on the health care practice via the manual of the Indian Association of Physiotherapists!
The film also stars Pakistani actor Fawad Afzal Khan and Aditi Rao Hydari in lead roles. Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the film is set to hit the silver screen on September 19 this year.
