I'm protective about my personal life, says bride-to-be Sonam Kapoor


Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is all set to tie the knot with her long-time Delhi-based businessman boyfriend Anand Ahuja, says she is an extremely private person and is very protective about her personal life.

The "Khoobsurat" actress has always maintained silence about her relationship with Anand and is even tight-lipped about her wedding. The families of the couple confirmed last week that they will tie the knot on May 8. Asked if she is open to talk about her personal life, Sonam told IANS over e-mail from Mumbai: "I am very protective about my personal life. I'm an extremely private person and I do feel somewhere that it takes away attention from your work."

Soon after her wedding, the actress will be seen on the silver screen in the film Veere Di Wedding and she says that it's a 'very commercial film'. "It's a genuine film about four women and there is no lead role. I am really excited to work with Kareena (Kapoor Khan), Swara (Bhaskar) and Shikha (Talsania). They are all wonderfully talented women and actors," she added.

Sonam strongly believes that Bollywood needed its own girl-bonding film. "So far the films being made are specifically for women, with related themes. Why do women-oriented films have to be hard-hitting for them to make an impact? Veere Di Wedding is a film for women and their men too," said the 32-year-old actress.

A week after her D-day, Sonam will be seen at the 71st Cannes Film Festival red carpet to fulfill her commitment as L'oreal Paris' brand ambassador on May 14 and May 15. She says she is looking forward to the energy at the gala. "I enjoy everything the festival has to offer, without the pressure. Also, this year, I am looking forward to the entire L'Oréal Paris #SummerEscape experience -- the beach, the Riviera, lounging by the sea and, of course, meeting the other L'Oréal Paris ambassadors!" she said.
