Sonam Kapoor feels being a star kid is very challenging as there is a lot of pressure to perform well. It is not all that rosy as it seems, says Sonam. However, the actor is very proud of her dad and that she is his daughter.
“It is much easier in the industry for a star kid, but everyone has their own struggle. It is easier to join (the industry) and people look at you differently, but then they also come with their own baggage of comparisons,” Sonam told in an interview.
“I think it is a privilege to be Anil Kapoor`s daughter because he is such a good artist and it is great to be associated with him in any way,” she added.
The actress has done five films so far and is keen on being a part of a remake of any of her father’s past flicks, provided she gets to play the role her dad essayed.
“I like a lot of his films… as long as I get to play the hero! I love `Lamhe` and `Mr. India`, I don`t mind playing Sridevi`s character there… I love `Tezaab` and `Ram Lakhan`. If I get to do any remakes of films from the 1980s an 1990s, where it was more male-dominated, I would rather be the hero,” she said.
Meanwhile, Ms Kapoor is eyeing direction too. However, there is still time for it to happen.
“Eventually I will direct a movie. But right now I will concentrate on my acting,” said the 27-year-old.
Presently, the actress is eagerly waiting for her films ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Raanjhaana’ to release next year.
