Sonam Kapoor

Actress Sonam Kapoor who is all set to star in the remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Khubsoorat’, which had yesteryear Diva Rekha in the lead, has decided to name herself after another female protagonist from another Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s classic Mili. Sonam said her Khubsoorat is very different from the original. “The spirit is the same. The characters are also the same. But the circumstances have been changed.”




When Sonam was asked the reason for the crossover she said,” We are all huge fans of Hrishikesh Mukherjee. My dad worked in his last film. Unfortunately I couldn’t work with him. Shashank waited four years to do his own take on Khubsoorat with me. And since Mili is another favourite of film of mine by Hrishida, I decided to incorporate that as well into our Khubsoorat.”

She further added, “I thoroughly enjoyed playing a character that Rekhaji has played so wonderfully in the past.Her spirit runs through Khubsoorat. But I haven’t copied her in any way. Not in my clothes, performance or attitude. I am Mili, not Anju.”
