Chit Chat

Why should I apologise to Ranbir: Sonam Kapoor

The show Koffee with Karan Season 3 was completed long ago, yet it’s backlash is still coming. In a recent interview with Sonam Kapoor by Vickey Lalwani from Mumbai Mirror, she still holds grudges with Ranbir. Looks like after losing many movies against her contemprories like Deepika, Anushka & Sonakshi she seems to have opinion now about everyone in the industry that too not the good one.

Here are some excerpts of her chit-chat with Vickey along with some comments from Surveen, our humor angel;

How did you get Pankaj Kapur’s Mausam?

It all began with Shahid (Kapoor) calling me up. There are three reasons why I accepted the offer:
(1) I am a big fan of Pankaj Sir,
(2) I loved the script and
(3) I had never worked with Shahid.

Well Daddy’s spoilt gurl, you haven’t worked with many stars and super-stars. If you keep on maintaining this attitude you know what, you might not get a chance… ever…

Pankaj Kapur is known to be a very hard taskmaster…

Not with me. He never raised his voice at me. He knew that I prepared a lot before coming to the sets. I imbibed a lot from his narrations. But yes, every actor is different and Pankaj Sir dealt with each one of us differently. Once I met him, I knew that I wouldn’t be sidelined in the film even though his son was the hero.

Well, Pankaj Kapoor wanted to avoid your Nautanki and tantrums, so he thought its better not to teach you how to act. Afterall he want’s his son Shahid to look and perform good, you are mere prop in the movie, we know it.

And did his son live up to his reputation of being a meddler?

I haven’t worked with Shahid before Mausam, so I don’t know how he behaves otherwise. But during the filming of Mausam, he was extremely respectful of his father and obeyed him completely. I know there were rumours of Shahid and me not getting along as well. The truth is, Shahid and I share a very good equation. We are good friends. Just because I am not having an affair with my hero, doesn’t mean I don’t get along with him. Let me tell you something about him…

Why the hell would Shahid want to get stuck with you when he has chances with Piggy Chops, Anushka and likes ? Are you worth like them ? Think again…

Go on…

He doesn’t give a damn about what he wears. He is too much of a teenager who dresses up like an 18-year-old skateboarder. He can pull off just about anything without raising eyebrows. But…and it’s hilarious…he is extremely worried about his hair.

Sorry, Shahid is busy with movies so he doesn’t have time to waste like you on shopping wierd apparels

But you, on the other hand, are too particular about what you wear.

I don’t wear tight dresses that outline my butt. I refuse to get into body hugging tops with spandex simply because it doesn’t fit my body type. I do not believe in cosmetic surgeries either. I think, every single imperfection adds to your beauty. I’d rather be imperfect than perfect. And yes, I have a certain sense of aesthetics. Think about it… I still look good in both Indian and Western wear. (And she winks)

Sorry gurl, you need curves to wear dresses which highlights your assets.

Maybe not tight clothes, but would you ever sport a bikini?

I don’t have a body like Deepika Padukone or Bipasha Basu. But if it’s a beach scene, I surely can’t wear a salwar kameez, right?

What will you do if you have to do a role of Chameli, Julie… ? Full frontal ?

Speaking about Deepika, why haven’t you two resolved your cold war?

She is sweet if and when we meet. However, we haven’t met since we made an appearance on Karan Johar’s show. We don’t have time, I guess. Also, for two people to be friends, they need to think alike, isn’t it?

Oow… during the show, you both were tag-teaming against Ranbir. Now, after the show you think you both have different frequencies ?

Correct me if I’m wrong… but you are not apologetic about your remarks against Ranbir on Karan Johar’s show.

No correction required. You are not wrong. Well, it was Ranbir who started it all by saying ‘Sonam is not sexy’. I just shot back and said ‘Ranbir is not sexy’. If a man says it, chalta hai. But when a woman says the same thing, nahi chalta hai?
That’s sexist!
Why should I say ‘sorry’ to him?
Just because his father made a hue and cry about it?
If Ranbir apologises to me, I shall too.

Not just Ranbir, ask anyone in the industry, you will find no one who finds you sexy. Look at your lean and mean body.

So, you don’t talk to Ranbir anymore…

I don’t know Ranbir anymore. He is not my friend now. I did have offers to act opposite him but I turned them down. And that’s simply because I thought that those roles did not suit me. If I get something nice, I’ll act with him. It isn’t necessary for me to be friends with all my actors.

Gurl, before you say that let me educate you one thing. It’s not who turned down the movie, but it was Ranbir who first turned down a movie with you. Get your facts right, before speaking.

How do you judge whether a role suits you or not?

Depends on my mood. I am eccentric.(Smiles)

Wow, this again proves you are still the Daddy’s little spoilt gurl and you have no right to be in art & entertainment industry.

Punit Malhotra?

What about him? He was my director in I Hate Luv Storys.

You are dating him…

I shall talk about my personal life if and when I decide to get married. That day is yet to come.

Hasn’t he moved ahead ?
