Fam jam: Sonam ex­cited about work­ing with dad

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - FRONT PAGE - Prashant Singh ■ prashant.singh@htlive.com

Ever since Sonam Kapoor made her act­ing de­but in Bol­ly­wood with the 2007 film, Saawariya, she and her fa­ther, ac­claimed ac­tor Anil Kapoor, have been asked one ques­tion re­peat­edly: When will you two work to­gether?

Now, as the duo is fi­nally team­ing up in Vidhu Vinod Cho­pra’s next pro­duc­tion, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga, Sonam is vis­i­bly kicked about it, but “can’t dis­cuss any­thing about the film” since she has signed an NDA (non dis­clo­sure agree­ment). “I can tell you that I have started shoot­ing for it and I’m very ex­cited about work­ing with my fa­ther and to do such a film,” she says.

The ac­tor has also worked with her sis­ter, pro­ducer Rhea [Kapoor], on Aisha (2010), Khoob­soorat (2014) and on one of her up­com­ing films.

Dad Anil has joked many a time about Sonam not be­ing ready to share screen space with him. To that, his daugh­ter dear­est says, “I don’t know whether I am ready even now or not but this film needed my fa­ther. That is the max­i­mum I can say about it.”

Com­par­ing their fil­mog­ra­phy, one can say that Anil has mas­tered the art of com­mer­cial Bol­ly­wood pot­boil­ers, but Sonam hasn’t been part of many such films. “I en­joy them, but if I’ve to do a film that is only com­mer­cially rel­e­vant, then I’d rather work with Sooraj Bar­jatya,” says Sonam about her Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015) di­rec­tor. “Women are not flow­er­pots and dec­o­ra­tions in his films but ex­tremely rel­e­vant [to the story],” she adds.
