Sonam wants to play Waheeda Rehman's role from 'Guide'

 Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor has expressed her desire to step into the shoes of yesteryear actress Waheeda Rehman and essay the role she played in 1965 film 'Guide'.

The film, starring Dev Anand and Waheeda, was based on R K Narayan's critically acclaimed novel, 'The Guide' and Sonam, who has worked with the veteran actress in 'Delhi 6', is keen on a chance to play the character of Rosie Marco.

"I have worked with her in 'Delhi 6'. She is a fabulous actress. If I had to pick a role from the older films then for me it would be from the film 'Guide'.

"The character of Rosie was not that of a typical heroine... it had a lot of grey shades. I would love to portray (Rosie)," the 26-year-old actress said.

Sonam last evening attended a function where an album of late writer-lyricist Kaifi Azmi, father of veteran actress Shabana Azmi, was launched.

"I like many songs of Azmi sahib. Today's songs do not have stability and grace. My generation is impatient and the beauty of that time is lost to us," Sonam said.
