This is why; if she was a shy Sakeena in Saawariya, Sonam is a spirited youngster (who represents the youth of India - in her own words) in Delhi-6. Meanwhile, she insists that it isn't a definite image change that she is looking at by working on two contrasting films.
So, is she conveying a message to the world out there that 'Hey, I too can have a lot of fun'?
''Honestly, it isn't anything like 'I wanna have fun'. The fact is that I don't believe in an image'', says Sonam who in last few days has gone through extensive photo shoots and press conferences en route to this Friday's release of Delhi-6.
She adds, ''Cliched as it may sound but it's true for most actors to be just like a chameleon. You can be bored doing same thing time and again and after a while, it isn't acting; it just turns out to be a job. I don't want that to happen to me.''
Sonam insists that she wants to follow her father's footsteps.
''I always want to be different in what I do. My father has also done the same thing in spite of being around for three decades'', she says with a certain pride in her voice, ''He has such an enviable repertoire of work behind him and the reason for that is that he has played around with his roles. I want the same for me and hence aim for doing something different in each of my films.''
Sonam Kapoor has just started her career as an actor but in these couple of years, she has realized that she wants to evolve on a continuous basis. Self admittedly, she gets bored if she is asked to do the same thing repeatedly and when it comes to cinema, she wishes to explore different settings, genres and of course characters with every film of hers.
