Ac­tor Sonam Kapoor (left) says that the makers of her re­cent release co-star­ring ac­tor Sal­man Khan, had to ex­plain to her that the film’s col­lec­tions were good, as she is clue­less about the math­e­mat­ics be­hind box-of­fice num­bers.

“I don’t understand num­bers. I just don’t get how it works. I used to re­ceive a call from the co-pro­ducer ev­ery day about the col­lec­tions and I would ask, ‘Is it good or bad?’ And they would say, ‘It’s very good news’. This film has made those kind of num­bers, so ob­vi­ously, many peo­ple have watched the film,” says the ac­tor.

Sonam’s dance in the film’s ti­tle track has been quite pop­u­lar, with nu­mer­ous videos of celebri­ties danc­ing to her steps in them, do­ing the rounds.

“Ev­ery­body is con­grat­u­lat­ing me. What I love is that I’m get­ting calls and mes­sages from peo­ple who’ve never mes­saged or called me. And it’s peo­ple not from the in­dus­try. I’ve been get­ting a lot of calls from In­di­ans abroad who’re watch­ing the film and miss­ing home so much. For me, that is the best thing, when some­thing af­fects you emo­tion­ally in the best way,” says the 30-year-old.

Sonam re­cently be­came a vic­tim of trolls on so­cial me­dia for her ap­par­ent ‘misog­y­nis­tic’ re­mark on the meat ban in Mum­bai. But there are no trolls for her per­for­mance in the film. “Pre­dom­i­nantly, I re­ceive a lot of neg­a­tiv­ity on so­cial me­dia, but I’m re­ceiv­ing only pos­i­tiv­ity now and that is over­whelm­ing for me on a dif­fer­ent scale. Thanks to Sal­man, Sooraj sir; it has noth­ing to do with me, but I’m very happy,” she says.
