National award winning actress Sonam Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming film 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga', has said she doesn't believe in labels, which are associated with the actors in the film industry.Sonam Kapoor was interacting with the media at the promotional press conference of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga' along with his co-actors Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla, director Shelly Chopra Dhar and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra in Mumbai on Monday.
Sonam Kapoor is essaying an LGBTQ character in the forthcoming movie.Same-sex relationships continue to be a taboo in India, despite the Supreme Court scrapping Section 377 that criminalised "unnatural intercourse". And when it comes to lesbians, there is a further lack of acknowledgement or understanding.However, 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga' seems to be talking on a pertinent issue - marriages of middle class, queer and Indian women. The trailer of the film has received a positive response from the audience.
When asked whether she had second thoughts while playing a bold character in the film or not, Sonam said, "I don't know about bold character but there is one thing that I don't believe in and that's 'labels'. When I decide to do a film or a character, I get encouraged by the fact that nobody else would say yes to it except for me."
When asked Sonam whether she thinks that she is pushing the envelope for Indian actresses by playing these kind of characters, she said, "I don't think I am immodest enough to say something like that. I am humble enough to understand that I am certain kind of person and actor. I can't do what other people do so, I can only do what I can do.
I don't think I am talented enough to do what other people do, So, I am very happy in my space. I am just trying my very best to do what I can do."Anil Kapoor is collaborating with his actress daughter Sonam Kapoor in 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga' for the first time.
