Sonam Kapoor is busy collecting compliments. While she was all wrapped up and hidden before the promotion of Saawariya, Sonam is much more open when it comes to Delhi 6. Moreover, her portrayal of the character of 'Bittu' in this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed film is such that people have been forced to stand up and take notice of this girl who is super charged about the prospects of the film.
''When people say that I am looking different in Delhi 6, I only end up saying 'Thank God'! This means that I am doing what I am required to do pretty well," says Sonam who plays the part of a happy and full of energy girl in coming Friday's release.
'''Bittu' is young and vivacious and that shows in her body language and mannerisms. However in case of Saawariya I couldn't have afforded to look so happy because Sakeena was just shown to be clinging on to the small thread of love. This is why a huge difference is seen in my look and presence in Delhi 6 due to which people are observing a different me," says Sonam while drawing comparisons between the two parts that she played in Saawariya followed by Delhi 6.
She is all appreciation for her debut director Sanjay Leela Bhansali though. ''I feel Saawariya has given me whatever I wanted'', Sonam remembers fondly, ''Mr. Mehra noticed me because of that film. It's because of that film that thankfully people don't look at me as just another pretty face that can be roped in to dance on screen. They know that I can do more. For me, Saawariya was a perfect debut and I couldn't have asked for a better debut. Also, in Delhi 6, I couldn't have asked for a better second film. At least with this film I could break out of an image.''
