Sonam Kapoor`s `Khubsoorat` ready to roll in August
Mumbai: The camera will start rolling for ‘Khubsoorat’ during monsoon and its lead actress Sonam Kapoor says the story has been completely changed while retaining the spirit of the characters.
"I will start shooting this August," she told reporters.
The Hrishikesh Mukerjee-directed 1980 family drama, which won the Filmfare award for the best film, was about a young fun loving girl who falls in love with a doctor, played by Rakesh Roshan. How she wins the hearts of everyone in her beau`s family that revolves around his mother`s strict regimen is the story all about.
If Rekha had wowed everyone with her happy-go-lucky performance, Deena Pathak as a strict family head added the right contrast to the story.
"The whole point of the film is to capture the spirit of the character. The story is completely changed. So, I want to capture that spirit. Rekha did it so beautifully... even if I can do 10 percent of that, it is great."
Making her character more contemporary is what Sonam aims at.
"I am scared before getting into any character. I hope to make it more current and how young girls are right now... more vibrant," she said,
She is convinced that girls will appreciate the new version of ‘Khubsoorat’ and added: "It will be very Mills and Boonish. I make movies for girls. It is a chic flick."
