What Sonam Kapoor Said
"I don't think Shahrukh Khan wants to work with me. There have been so many opportunities where I could have worked with him but he... I wanted to work with him and I reached out to him as well. But I never got the opportunity. I guess it'll happen whenever he feels like working with me."

Sonam Kapoor told a leading daily, "Somebody asked me if I would like to work with SRK, and I said, 'Of course, I would love to work with him when he wants to.' I have just not had the opportunity. He is in a unique position, where he takes the calls (about the female leads he wants to work with)."
I Was Misinterpreted: Sonam
Sonam Kapoor further added, "Yes, a lot of calls are taken by directors and I only work with those directors who take that call. So, all I said was that I will work with him when he wants to, and whenever there is a role and an opportunity. But whatever I said was misinterpreted."

"Even Mr Khan called me up and asked if the statement was true. And I said, 'No, it's not. I didn't say it like that. You have known me for many years and it is not what it is.'"
