Chat Face-to-face with Sonam
S onam Kapoor talks about her obsession with gadgets, her views on “The Dirty Picture” and her tweeting about Arjun Kapoor. Excerpts:
You recently tweeted about your cousin Arjun Kapoor (Boney and Mona Kapoor's son) entering the film industry.
I am really excited. He is more than a brother and I love him so much. I am sure he is going to be the biggest star of this country.
Ranbir Kapoor recently said you are a true drama queen. What do you say about it?
I am an actor; I have to be a drama queen. I have been spoilt rotten. I do a lot of drama. The biggest stars, most of them, always did a lot of drama.
When did you get your first mobile phone?
I got my first cell phone when I was 17 — not that long ago. I was studying at a boarding school in Singapore; my mother wanted to keep in touch with me, so she gave me a mobile phone. Who is your 4 a.m. friend?
I talk to my sister the most. I call her even when she is in the next room.
You have replaced Priyanka Chopra and Katrina who were initially finalised to endorse a mobile connectivity brand.
I got the offer to be the brand ambassador and I took it up. I might have been chosen because I am seen around these days, my movies are out and I am known. The similarity between my brand and me is just like me, my brand is vivid, colourful and constantly changing.
How gadget-friendly are you?
I am obsessed with gadgets. I go through each and every feature of my phone as soon as I get a new one. Which is the gadget you cannot do without?
My hair dryer.
Have you seen the The Dirty Picture trailer? Can you imagine anybody else playing Silk Smitha?
Yes, I have seen the trailers. I am a huge Vidya Balan fan. She is stunning. Only she can carry off a role like this. She is sexy and classy at the same time.
