From Neerja to Padman to her latest Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Sonam Kapoor has finished some radical choices in her career and a actor says her aim is to support stories that have clever women representation.
While Neerja was a story of slain moody attendant Neerja Bhanot, Padman talked about menstrual hygiene and it was her impression who helped a protagonist (Akshay Kumar) to make low-cost spotless napkins. Veere Di Wedding revolved around 4 contemporary Indian women and with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, she became a initial A-list actor to have played a homosexual character.
“Women need to have some-more illustration in this film industry. Women don’t have it. Last year, we have had Veere Di Wedding and Raazi doing good commercially. There should be some-more women illustration in terms of lead, some-more suspicion and calm for them.
“There are gifted lady in a film attention here, who have also achieved stardom and it all should be used in a right way,” Sonam told PTI.
The actor, who finished her entrance in films with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya and starred in a few cliche regretful dramas, shifted her concentration to calm driven projects with Aanand L Rai’s Raanjhanaa. She afterwards featured in films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Khoobsurat among others.
Sonam believes with calm apropos a favourite of a film, there is no “safe” or “unsafe” section for actors.
“What is personification safe? we have finished blurb films and they did not do good during all. And some of my films that were not blurb did well. we am wondering what is protected today?
“Today we have films headed by Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao and they are so successful. Nobody knows what a assembly is going to like or not like during this point. There is no formula. The usually thing that works is honesty, firmness and a good story,” she added.
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, that expelled on Feb 1, has minted about Rs 20 crore and Sonam is happy with a vicious appreciation.
“I consider commercially we are going in a right direction. we wish it was a wider release, we usually expelled it in 1,000 screens. With a kind of response we are removing and due to word-of-mouth if we had a wider recover we would have had improved numbers. It was a producer’s call.
“This is a film that should strech some-more people. It has exceeded a expectancy of a writer and subsequent time they will have a wider recover for a film like this,” she said.
She serve suggested a film will be expelled on a digital height with an aim to enhance a reach. The 33-year-old actor pronounced a response to a film on a broader turn is a little step towards acceptance.
“It is too early to applaud anything as there is a prolonged approach to go. We are constantly stereotyping people in a film attention and it is critical to pierce divided from that and creation certain a labels are disabled.”
Sonam believes Indians are magnanimous and on-going people and cinema should be used in a right approach to make a common male aware.
“We need to have some kind of illustration of certain things by art, cinema. we wish to be partial of films like that. we wish to be obliged in a choices we make, if we are not obliged we are not an artiste. Art is one approach by that we can make people change a approach they think,” she added.
