Actress Sonam Kapoor, looked upon as a fashion icon by the youth, says she hates the term ‘fashionista’. “I hate the word fashionista. There is a difference between being fashionable and stylish. One should be comfortable with what he or she wears. One should smile and be confident,” Sonam told reporters here.
The 31-year-old “Neerja” star was talking at the launch of the latest Oppo mobile phone. “I am happy to be associated with Oppo mobiles and with Hrithik Roshan (also an ambassador of the brand). They have grown by leaps and bounds,” the “Raanjhnaa” actress said.
“I love taking pictures. I love taking a lot of selfies. It’s important to smile while you take pictures. I smile a lot,” she added. Cricketer Yuvraj Singh and celebrity photographer Daboo Ratnani were also present at the event.
Sonam also said lately that language should not curb any actor’s enthusiasm and that she is open to doing Russian, Chinese or French films if the script and her character is good. Sonam, when asked if she would do a Punjabi film, said, “I don’t know the language; I do understand it. I understand Sindhi and Hindi more, but why not? I don’t think, as an actor, a language should curb your enthusiasm.
“If I like the story and if it is Punjabi, Chinese, Hindi, Marathi, Russian, French or any language, I will do it if I like the character.”
While Sonam’s contemporaries like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are currently doing films in the English-language Hollywood, films in Russian or Chinese or French have not been tried often by Indian actors. The only one in recent times that can be considered is Sonu Sood and Amyra Dastur working with superstar Jackie Chan in the English-Hindi-Mandarin film “Kung Fu Yoga”.
Sonam is will next be seen in the film Veerey Di Wedding.
