Actress Sonam Kapoor, who reprises the role that Rekha played in
the 1980 family comedy Khubsoorat in its remake, says she
sought the blessings of the veteran stunner before beginning to
shoot for it.
"I got her blessings for the film I am doing; I met her at the
Jab Tak Hai Jaan premiere and that's when she told
(blessed) me," Sonam said here.
"We are just taking the spirit of the character and putting it
in a modern way. We are modernising it and just keeping the spirit
of the girl. We are not sticking to the same story line," she
The original film, directed by the maverick Hrishikesh
Mukherjee, also starred Ashok Kumar, Dina Pathak and Rakesh Roshan.
Khubsoorat is being remade by Sonam's actor father Anil
Kapoor, and directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
Sonam said: "I am very excited to work with Shashank. He is the
director and he is an absolute genius. The film is going on floors
in August." IANS
