Sonam Kapoor and Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo broke all the box office records. But Sonam said that she received a lot of negative reviews, when the trailer of the movie came out. Sonam also said that she was not a showpiece in the movie.
Talking about Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sonam Kapoor told DNA, "When the trailer came out, I received a lot of negative reviews. But post the film's release, the feedback has been mostly positive.The best compliments I received were mainly from the senior critics and members of the media who said that I played the part really, really well. When people say that you have lived the character, that's possibly the best thing you can hear about your work."

Sonam Kapoor further added, "I went in knowing people will think that I am just another actress who's romancing Salman Khan, but I patiently waited for the film to hit screens so that people could see how much of a role I had. People thought I would have barely 15-20 minutes on screen, but they now know that I wasn't another showpiece in the film. Despite Salman Khan being a force where people usually get lost in, Sooraj took care of my character.''
''A love story can't be one-sided. In this film, my role had the length, the meat and everything else. Salman shot for 200 days, I also shot for 150 days. But that doesn't mean I am against a short role. Even a 20-minute role is great if it can create the necessary impact. Look at Delhi 6 or Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. I barely had 15-20 minutes screen time but my character impacted the entire film's plot. People still remember me for those films," the beautiful actress said.

Talking about Prem Ratan Dhan Payo's box office numbers, Sonam Kapoor says, "I have always been away from this box office race. I don't understand numbers.''
Sonam Kapoor further added, "My brother Harsh follows it more than I do. I just asked him, ‘Is this actually good?' He told me, "It's brilliant, didi! what's wrong with you?'''
''For me, people liking the film and it doing well, matters because we make it for them to watch it. I might not understand the box office part of a film's success,'' the beautiful actress said.
Sonam Kapoor further revealed, ''I do understand that if people are talking about your film, messaging positive things after watching the film, that's the greatest feeling ever."
"I don't think I can ever achieve what Bhagyashree did in Maine Pyaar Kiya or what Madhuri did in Hum Aapke Hain Koun..,'' Sonam Kapoor said on Salman's heroines.

''It will mean pushing myself way too much. That's what Sooraj told my dad when he met him. He said that there's a lot of hunger in Sonam to perform and to work hard,'' she said.
Sonam Kapoor added, ''That hunger goes away if you think you're too big for your boots. I don't ever want to show it on screen that I know it all. I feel I have a really long way to go and with each film, I only want to get better.''
