Mumbai: Carefree actress Sonam Kapoor has come to learn that she needs to be "careful" with her words in an industry where statements can be "twisted and distorted"
Sonam`s father Anil Kapoor had recently said that Sonam`s bikini shot would get `Bewakoofiyan` a good opening.
Refuting this, the actress said: "My father never said that. All that I said at a press meet was that my father feels the film would get a good opening. That statement found itself bonding with the bikini in the newspaper headlines.
"I`ve realized I have to be very careful in what I say. I speak my heart out. Such honesty is not appreciated in the film industry. Instead, it is twisted and distorted. A lot of what I say is lost in translation."
Actresses often credit the decision of wearing a bikini on screen to the "demand of the script" or the director, but Sonam Kapoor says it was her own decision to flaunt the two-piece garment in her film `Bewakoofiyaan`. And she wasn`t tense about it.
"It wasn`t the producer Aditya Chopra or the director Nupur Asthana`s idea that I wear a bikini. In fact, the director suggested a one-piece bathing costume. But I thought a bikini was fine," said the saucy actress.
It`s no big deal, she feels.
"If you see the trailer, there are two young people going for swim. It`s perfectly natural for the girl to be in a bikini. It`s not Halle Berry in a James Bond film or Bipasha Basu in `Dhoom` making a splash.
"The bikini blends naturally into the scene. And I am very happy to be wearing one. Having a female director around helped. But I wasn`t really tense about wearing a bikini," she said.
