Sonam Kapoor does not need Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga to be seen as a narrative about same-sex relationships.
She prefers that or not it’s seen as a coming-of-age romance and says that labelling issues are problematic.
The actor mentioned it’s straightforward to stereotype individuals. “Like, if you’re a heroine, you’re diva with low morals, a vogue mannequin is proven as drugged and that media individuals typically lie. There will probably be stereotypes in all places and my endeavour is to interrupt the stereotypes. Stereotypes are so harmful,” she mentioned about her motive for doing the movie.
Sonam added it was essential for her that her character’s love story is proven as authentically as potential.
“It will be significant for me that the challenge is as genuine as potential. Simply since you determine to like any person which may not be of the alternative intercourse, doesn’t imply you’re completely different. Love is love. You can’t select who you fall in love with. Judgment in our nation is available in varied types, we all the time are conformed to considering or be in a sure means. That may be very merciless. Each particular person has a alternative of who they need to be,” she added.
Speaking about her future initiatives, she mentioned, “We’re finished with the shoot of The Zoya Issue. Pre-production work has began on Battle for Bittora. We have not signed anybody (referring to male lead). I do not assume anyone might be Fawad Khan.”
Ek Ladki additionally stars Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla. It launched in India as we speak.
