She is having a rollicking time in Scotland, with the cast
and crew of "Mausam", and is looking forward to coming
back to India to promote "Aisha".
"I am experiencing four seasons in a day here in Edinburgh...the
'mausam'(weather) is so unpredictable here...but I am loving
it. I am coming back home on 27th of July to promote 'Aisha'.
It's going to be fun," she said.
Sonam plays the principal character in "Aisha" -
a young, free-spirited, stylish and spoilt high society girl
obsessed with match-making. Based on Jane Austen's classic novel
"Emma", the film is about Aisha's life and her friends.
What makes the film special for Sonam is that it has been produced
by her younger sister Rhea and has the backing of her father.
"Aisha", releasing Aug 6, also features actors like
Abhay Deol, Cyrus Sahukar, Arunoday Singh, Ira Dubey and debutante
Sonam has been zipping across the world to fulfil her work
From promoting "I Hate Luv Storys" here and going
back to the sets of Anees Bazmee's romantic comedy "Thank
You" opposite Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Kapoor's "Mausam",
she has been constantly on the move.
But she doesn't find it tiring.
"I don't want a break. Working is a holiday for me. I
have a lot of work lined up till December, then maybe I take
two weeks off. But I really don't believe in the concept of
taking a month off," said Sonam.
In fact, it is her packed work schedule that is making her
indecisive about two international projects that have been offered
to her. One is a Ben Stiller movie, while the other is a co-production
between her father Anil Kapoor and Italian actress Sophia Loren's
son Edoardo Ponti.
"Yes, I have been offered these two films. I have read
both the scripts - one is a comedy, the Ben Stiller one. I have
liked both of them, but I can't give any of them a thought till
I work out my dates. My schedules are jam-packed. I don't know
when they want to shoot - so accordingly, if my dates are free,
I'm all for them," said Sonam.
So even if she maybe Hollywood bound, what's the kind of work
she is looking forward to in Bollywood?
"I have been quite appreciated for what I have done. I
want to do work that makes me happy and I am quite an impulsive
decision-maker. I don't mind smaller but offbeat films, and
not so much mainstream stuff. By mainstream, I mean ones with
big budgets and no story," she said.
