Her father, that Bollywood survivor and comeback vet Anil Kapoor, had prepared her for disappointment and failure through his own bitter experience. “But it hits you when you go through it personally,” admitted the lovely Sonam. “It was disturbing because Saawariya, I truly believe, was a beautiful film. The negativity I faced after its release was scary. I just evaporated into thin air,” she added.

Are Saawariya and Ranbir history now?

Both will remain more than special to me. Ranbir and I have known each other since we were kids. We were really close. And when you know someone very closely, there’s nothing to discover about him. But I know if I need Ranbir, he will be by my side.

Are you broken-hearted that he’s seeing Deepika?

Ranbir and I were never seeing each other. But I don’t know about the future.

If both of us are single... you never know what destiny has in store. But, at this point, I can vouch he is not my type. He has grown up before his age. He is way too mature for me. He is very proper and cute. I love messy relationships, full of intensity and drama.

Your kind of guy would be...

I wish Salman Khan was single, not an actor, not my father’s friend, and my age! I know it’s asking for too much.

It’s said you’re a girl trapped in a woman’s body...

The image of Saawariya must be strongly etched in people’s minds. I looked and behaved like a woman, maybe. But, hello, I am a girl of my age, with dreams, style, fashion, and likes that’s so of my age. And, yes, I have a mind and opinion of my own, but I am not overbearing in it.

Whispers are that your dad’s not pushing your career enough...

Agreed, and why should he? I believe things should come by my karma. As his daughter, I am happy that dad is doing so well again. It’s laudable to see him being paired with young girls. But, no, dad isn’t deciding my offers. He lets me choose. We can have parallel careers running in the industry. It’s just that I’m not happy with the offers. Almost all are woman centric. I want to do young, yuppie roles that befit my age.

Will you kiss on screen?

No issues, if the role demands it.
