'I don't look so good'

'I don't look  so good'

Sonam Kapoor, who is rumoured to have recently called off a relationship with director Punit Malhotra, loves being surrounded by her own gender.

The fashionista admits that she sometimes feels that men bring negativity into women’s lives. The 27-year-old, who has played very feminine roles in films like Aisha and ‘I Hate Luv Stories’, enjoys the company of women.

“I love girls, I surround myself with only women. I think men bring negativity into our lives sometimes. Only women work with me,” Sonam says.

She may not have been wise in choosing her roles, butthe actress has proved that she never goes wrong in making style statements.

She admits that it’s a challenge to come up with winning looks every time she steps out.
“It is a challenge and that is why I have great people to help me look good. When you see me normally, I don’t look so good,” she admits. Terming herself a bit “self-obsessed”, Sonam admits that it is her sister, Rhea Kapoor, who gives styling tips to her dad, actor Anil Kapoor.

“My sister is really good at that. I am really self-obsessed; so I only concentrate on myself,” the 27-year-old says.

While tackling a tough work schedule, Sonam stays fit by following a strict food regime.
“I eat right — I have a nutritionist who takes care of me. I have people who are constantly telling me to drink enough water. It’s about eating right, drinking enough water and being happy in general — surrounding yourself with positive, happy people,” she reveals.

As far as acting is concerned, she will be seen in Raanjhanaa, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, the Khoobsurat remake and YRF’s untitled film and says her endeavour is to be different on the screen.

“The characters that I have in Raanjhanaa, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Khoobsurat and YRF’s untitled film are very different. They are about girls with incredibly different characters and journeys,” says Sonam. Raanjhanaa will see her teaming up with southern star Dhanush and she says, “I love Aishwarya and Dhanush. They are the most amazing couple. I can call Dhanush a really good friend now. He is so respectful and modest and an incredible actor.”

Is Sonam ready to step into the southern film industry?

“I would love to do a southern film. I saw how tough it was for Dhanush, so I am scared about it,” she smiles.
