A little more than a year ago when Saawariya was released, there were ton loads of expectations from Sonam. Now when Delhi-6 arrived, she is already a household name. The pressure on her must be lesser this time around though, right?
“No, actually I have never been under pressure, be it Saawariya or now Delhi-6. I seriously believe that if there is too much of pressure, you can't deliver properly as you are constantly thinking of the outcome. I like the journey more than the outcome," she said
But people do have expectations. Doesn't that linger on somewhere in the mind?
“See, I want people to appreciate me and my role and think about it. So in this context, yes I am conscious about the fact that people do have good expectations from me. They are right in speculating that from Sanjay Leela Bhansali to Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, have I become better or worse," she said.
Isn't that a scary situation?
“What's the point? And why just me, even the biggest actors are compared with their previous films. People do talk about whether Shahrukh Khan's movie will be bigger than his last film or whether Akshay's next film will make him # 1 or a star's next big release would get a good or a bad review. This way no one is safe ever. Whenever you are doing any form of art, it all boils down to public appreciation," Sonam pointed out.
If she is seemingly all vivacious and happy in Delhi-6, it is because of two reasons: a) She is like this in real life as well and b) Her character of 'Bittu' in this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed film is the kind that has a lot to look forward to in life and is perpetually happy. That's Sonam Kapoor for you, the Saawariya girl, who is looking extremely beautiful and happening on screen. And this has been made possible because of a bunch of brilliant people who, in her own words, have come together to design her look.
