My love life has been unsuccessful: Sonam Kapoor
She is young, vivacious and has played the love struck romantic in reel life, but Sonam Kapoor confesses that she has not been lucky when it came to love in real life.
Born with a silver spoon, the daughter of actor Anil Kapoor and former model Sunita was said to be dating “I Hate Luv Storys” director Punit Malhotra and was also romantically linked to her “Mausam” co-star Shahid Kapoor.
But in a candid confession, she said: “My love life has been quite unsuccessful. I am single, but I think human beings have the capacity to love.”
The 27-year-old feels love is not a restricted feeling.
“I don’t think you can fall in love only once. You can fall in love over and over again. We have the capacity and we have the heart to do that,” Sonam told IANS.
Her real life romance has not been inspiring, but on the screen she has been part of several love stories, including her debut film “Saawariya” as well as mushy dramas like “I Hate Luv Storys” and “Aisha”.
Her forthcoming film “Raanjhanaa” also belongs to the same genre. In the film, she will be seen romancing southern star Dhanush, who is debuting in Bollywood with the Anand L. Rai-directed movie coming out Friday.
When asked about her chemistry with Dhanush in “Raanjhanaa”, Sonam said: “Chemistry is not between two people, it’s between two characters. Chemistry gets created by moments. For example, Shahid and Kareena had done many films together, but people never spoke about their chemistry. But when they did ‘Jab We Met’ because of the scenes and their roles, people liked it.”
She insists that chemistry can be created through “acting, scenes and the way the director projects it. Chemistry is a very overdone, overspoken thing”.
