Sonam Kapoor talks about her choice in films,her career and on why she took up a films like Saawariya.
I know that none of my movies have done well at the box office. And I think it is because of the film critics that I am still surviving in the industry. For most of my movies, the reviews are not so good, but my work is applauded by critics. I know that people make jokes about my movies, but I don’t mind that because I don’t take myself so seriously. People ask me why I did Saawariya, to which I say I had two-three solid reasons for doing it. First, it was based on my favourite novel White Nights written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Second, it had my childhood friend Ranbir Kapoor, and third, it was made under the master direction of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. I believe that movies don’t fail; it’s the budgets that do. Some get media attention, some try to create a controversy with the help of PR machinery. But the movie producers and makers must stop thinking that the audience is dumb.
Sonam also adds that even though she is a fan of Dabanngg, she would like to see films with better content.
I’ve seen Dabangg and I wouldn’t mind accepting it publicly that it is a good film. But I would really appreciate it if the movies are more rich in terms of their content.
