Sonam Kapoor on her character in ‘The Zoya Factor’: She is very normal and average
Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is one of those rare performers who gets a lot of stick for speaking her mind. But that doesn’t stop Sonam from speaking on relevant issues and not just being politically correct. Yesterday, Sonam (May 8) completed her first wedding anniversary with Anand Ahuja. Now, the diva will next be seen in ‘The Zoya Factor’ and she is extremely chuffed about it.
‘The Zoya Factor’ is an adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s book about a girl named Zoya Singh Solanki who ends up becoming a lucky charm for the Indian cricket world cup team. What Sonam really loved about Zoya is the fact that she is a “huge mess”.
Sonam (in an interaction with news agency IANS) said, “A lot of girls tend to be like, ‘Listen, if I am such a mess, how am I ever going to succeed in life?’ But I want to say, it’s okay to be a mess. I think that’s what I said through Mili in ‘Khoobsurat’ and that’s what I liked about Zoya as well. I like to play girls who are regular and normal, who have regular problems because all of us have them.”
The ‘Veere Di Wedding’ actress further elaborated her point and said, “After my wedding, I have put on weight, my skin goes bad, I have really bad dark circles and I want all the girls to know that it’s okay. In India, there is so much pressure on girls… Whether it’s about who you’re getting married to, what is his education, why is your skin looking like that, ‘don’t go to sunny places you will become dark’, ‘why have you cut your hair’, don’t go out so much, don’t go out drinking. So I think it’s important for me to play characters who are normal. That’s what I loved about Zoya — she is very normal and average.”
Sonam Kapoor always lives her life without any conditions and it is a very refreshing change. ‘The Zoya Factor’ also stars Southern superstar Dulquer Salmaan.
