“I would be able to promote my film for one more week. It’s absolutely fine if the release date got pushed by a week. We have worked very hard and we are waiting for the film to release for a long time. Another seven days don’t matter,” Sonam told IANS.
The directorial debut of eminent actor Pankaj Kapoor, “Mausam” features Sonam as a Kashmiri girl who falls in love with a Punjabi boy, Shahid Kapoor.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) had raised an objection to a 30-second scene in the film. Though the censor board had given a U-certificate to the film, IAF had given a conditional No Objection Certificate (NOC) as they wanted that 30-second sequence to be corrected.
Getting the NOC from IAF after correction was too late to send prints overseas, which compelled the makers to postpone release from Sep 16 to Sep 23.
The actress, who made her debut in acting with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Saawariya” opposite Ranbir Kapoor, describes “Mausam” as her first true love story.
“I have never done a perfect love story. The film is about two people who want to be together. Here both of them love each other. I have never done a love story where both of them love each other,” said the actress who featured in films like “Delhi-6″, “I Hate Luv Storys”, “Aisha” and “Thank You”.
Sonam, daughter of actor Anil Kapoor, is confident she would sustain long in the industry.
“I know that I am here to stay. I work very hard and hopefully I would be here for a long time,” said the 26-year-old.
