“It doesn’t bother me that I didn’t win any awards for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.”
Sonam Kapoor is enjoying what is probably the best phase of her career – she has movies like Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo opposite Salman Khan to look forward to and she has been part of two major movies last year — Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Raanjhanaa.
Yet, on the flip side, Sonam has not yet bagged a single award whereas her co-stars from both films have been walking home with awards. While Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has bagged several Best Actor trophies for Farhan Akhtar and Raanjhanaa has resulted in Dhanush walking home with several Best Male Debut awards, poor Sonam has been sidelined on the awards front.
Ask Sonam about the same she says defensively, “I had a special appearance in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. It was a 20-minute role. It was a film about Milkha Singh and Farhan did the running. So it doesn’t really bother or concern me that I didn’t win any awards for the same.”
Preferring to concentrate on the positive, Sonam says: “I am just happy that I have been a part of two award-winning movies last year.”
Prod her into revealing whether these successes have resulted in her increasing her fee, at least, and she bluntly replies, “No.”
