Sonam Kapoor will be playing the role of Mili in her upcoming film Khubsoorat. For those who don’t know, the role is inspired from the role played by Rekha in the 1980 film of the same name.
While the film is not a remake of Rekha’s film, the character is based on the role played by Rekha. Apparently, Sonam and Rhea (who is producing the film), are great fans of director Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s films, and that this upcoming film is only inspired by Mukherjee’s classics.
“Sonam Kapoor, who reprises the role that Rekha played in the 1980 film, had sought Rekha’s best wishes even before shooting for their film had started. Now that the shoot is over and the post production is on, the Kapoor sisters want to show the first edit of the film to Rekha,” said a source.
Reportedly Sonam had met Rekha at an event where the latter told the former that she will lend her support to the film only after watching it.
