Sonam Kapoor is all set for the release of her forthcoming movie “Dolly Ki Doli”. The actress in an interview talks about her next 2015 release “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” and said that it’s not a movie where the actress has three scenes and four songs.
In an interview with Koimoi, Sonam said, “The reason I decided to do Sooraj Barjatya’s film is because it was a romantic film and you can’t make a romantic film if you do not have equal screen space.”
“In any Sooraj Barjatya’s film hero and heroine have same amount of screen time. This is a film about love, family, it’s not a film where a heroine has three scenes and four songs. And I know the audience always has expectations of me,” she added.
The “Raanjhanaa” star said that she is not concerned of the screen time and added that she will not choose to do films where she just have to be a pretty face.
“And it’s not about screen space… if you see my film ‘Delhi 6’, I am there for twenty five minutes in the film, but you won’t notice that because it was the strength of the character and the scenes and the kind of role it was. Even in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ I was barely there for ten minutes in a three hour film,” she said.
“So, if people remember me for those twenty five and ten minutes that’s what is important. Saying that, fortunately or unfortunately for the audience I am there through and through in this film. I will not choose to do films where I am not relevant or I just have to be a pretty face. I cannot do that to myself,” Sonam added.
“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” features Salman Khan in the lead role.
