Love has always been an integral part of her films and Sonam Kapoor says she chooses romantic movies because fairytale love stories don’t exist in real life.
The 28-year-old star’s films – Saawariya,I Hate Luv
Storys,Mausam and upcoming Raanjhanaa – all have love as the common theme.
“I believe in love a lot. I think these movies and novels have spoiled us and we will never find a good boy. We look at boys and think… Do they exist? So I think if I am not getting them in real life,at least,I can see them in reel life. That is why I am attracted to love stories,” Sonam told PTI in an interview.
“I like the heroic and unconditional love because I know such boys don’t exist in real life and I am very idealistic and romantic. I want to live my life vicariously through these characters,” Sonam added.

In Raanjhanaa,slated to release this Friday,Sonam Kapoor plays a small town Muslim girl who falls in love with a Hindu Brahmin boy from her locality.
Sonam Kapoor believes the audience would be able to relate to her character of a modern,independent girl.
“Zoya is a Muslim girl from Banaras who is the only child of her professor father. She is very much loved and a lot of freedom has been given to her. The movie is about love but a more realistic one,with which people will be able to relate to,” said the actress,who is also gearing up for the release of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag this July.
Raanjhanaa director Anand L Rai,who shot to fame with Tanu Weds Manu – is all praise for his lead heroine and believes Sonam has given her career’s best performance.
The actress,however,feels she has a long way to go before calling herself “good enough”.
“I have a long way to go as an actor. I am not going to call myself good enough… I love the craft so much that I will never give up working at it. I will continue acting till I become the best at it and right now I am very far from it,” the actress said candidly.
Sonam Kapoor’s last few films — Thank You,Mausam and Players — failed to do well at the box office but the actress says she will continue to take risks with her roles.
“I know,I have something to fall back on so I can take these risks. A lot of girls who come to this industry have to make safe choices and I don’t have to do that. I have a great cushion which is waiting for me to fall and I am grateful for it,” said Sonam.
Her impeccable style sense has earned her the tag of Bollywood fashionista but Sonam doesn’t not mind fashion being her primary identity.
“I’d rather be known for my fashion than my affairs or controversies. I’d rather be a fashion icon who dresses beautifully and is also an actress. I’d rather have that than be known for my affairs.”
