Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, are all set to make Hollywood debut through XXX sequel and Baywatch respectively, but Sonam Kapoor says she'll get to West only if "there's a strong & amazing character" and does not want to be just another "hot Indian girl" there.
Yes, Sonam Kapoor, who is basking in the success of her latest film Neerja, says she's worked really hard to reach the point where she is now in Bollywood, and does not want to start all over again in Hollywood just to be a "hot Indian girl" in the West.
The Neerja actress, Sonam Kapoor was quoted as saying, "I would like to take my projects to the West. I do not want to be the hot Indian girl there. I have worked very hard not to be this exotic Indian girl in India. I have worked very hard to the point where I could get to do a film like Neerja and be taken seriously."
Sonam Kapoor further commented,
"I do not want to start all over again. If I can get something with a lot of gravitas, I would definitely want to do it. I would approach them myself. If it's a great role, why not? But if it has something right and which attracts me."

When asked if she doesn't like international stardom, Sonam Kapoor replied as,
"For me, conquering the world is not important. For me conquering and honing my craft is more important. It doesn't matter what language I get to work in, as long as I get to explore something about myself and explore a character that I want to do. I will make a decision based on the fact that there's something that I can do in it."
Sonam Kapoor further adds, "There has to be something much more... There are so many roles being written, so why not? I want a strong, amazing character. Films like Neerja have a lot of potential of crossing over. Look at how well The Lunchbox and Masaan were received. They crossed international barriers."
