Clash of cousins? No, says Bhavna Ruparel

Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha`s `Joker` is coming out Friday and a week later her cousin Bhavna Ruparel`s debut project `Chal Pichchur Banate Hain` will hit the screens. The latter asserts they might be in the same profession but there is no competition between them.

Bhavna told reporters: "Wherever she (Sonakshi) goes I will follow her (laughs). Sonakshi is too busy with her film `Joker`. She has no time to breathe. Last time I met her was during Raksha Bandhan when I went to her place to tie `rakhi` to Luv and Kush."

She further added: "She is in her own league. There is no competition as such. There is work for many of us in the industry to survive and that`s how I look at it."

When it comes to family connection, Bhavna`s maternal grandmother and Sonakshi`s maternal grandma are sisters.

Bhavna is not the first one from her family to step under the arc-lights. Her sister Pooja Ruparel essayed the role of Chutki in "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge".

Before doing "Chal Pichchur Banate Hain", the 23-year-old did a video with Ken Ghosh at the age of eight. She also featured as a child artist in "Na Tum Jaano Na Hum " (2002) and "Joggers` Park" (2003).

"Chal Pichchur Banate Hain" is writer-director Pritish Chakraborty`s debut film. Bhavna is "excited about it".

"For me, script and storyline are important. I am extremely happy that I got an opportunity to make a debut with this film. No regrets at all. It was a learning experience but the best part is I am not self conscious in front of the camera. It was great working with the team."

Produced by Twilight Entertainment, `Chal Pichchur Banate Hain` will release Sep 7.
