We of­ten hear a lot about ac­tors and their link ups, how­ever, ac­tor Sonam Kapoor says she wants to be talked about only for her work. “I don’t feel the need to talk about my pri­vate life to the world. I am not the kind of per­son who would ever an­nounce my re­la­tion­ship sta­tus to the world. I would only dis­cuss it with my fam­ily and close friends,” she says.

Asked if the me­dia’s cu­rios­ity in her per­sonal life has ever both­ered her, she says, “But where is the cu­rios­ity? I think even the me­dia has stopped ask­ing me ques­tions about my per­sonal life be­cause they know I will not talk about it. I think it takes away from your work.”

Ad­dress­ing the pay dis­par­ity among fe­male ac­tors in Bol­ly­wood, Sonam sees a pos­i­tive change com­ing about. “I am happy that at least peo­ple are talk­ing and are not keep­ing mum,” says the Saawariya (2007) ac­tor. Be­ing the daugh­ter of ac­tor Anil Kapoor, Sonam has fre­quently faced com­par­isons, but she says she has al­ways had her fa­ther’s moral sup­port. “My fam­ily sup­ports me in ev­ery­thing. Even if there is some­thing that they don’t agree with, they ex­press their views but give me the free­dom to de­cide,” she says.
