Sonam Kapoor's quotes

  • I don't like men who treat women like arm candies. He should treat me like an equal or better. And then he should be a good human being. He should see the human side of things. I like men who stand up for what's right and who don't cheat.
  • Art reflects society. Cinema doesn't dictate - you portray what the society demands.
  • I think every single imperfection adds to your beauty. I'd rather be imperfect than perfect.
  • In my personal life, I have always been bold, from the clothes I wear to how I talk. For me, boldness does not necessarily mean stripping. I think people have wrong notion about boldness. For me, bold is being different.
  • I'm a bad girl. I always fall for good guys.
  • I am naive when it comes to love, you know what I mean? I do believe in falling in love at first sight and things like that.
  • I have eclectic taste, and I love vintage style mixed with glamour and old world charm.
  • Opposites generally create intense chemistry. There are more chances of fireworks when different people are together than similar personalities.
  • Being in love is the best feeling on the planet. I really believe that love makes the world go round.
  • I feel I am lucky. I am grateful for this life that God has given me. I am happy, as I am getting to do work that I want to do and enjoy doing it.
  • I don't want to be the biggest superstar. I want to be good at my job, and I want my work to go down in posterity. I am working for the longevity of my career.
  • It's unfortunate when people say you can't wear skirts or do item numbers, or a girl can't dress in a certain way. Are we going back to dark ages?
  • Women of worth are those who want positive change for themselves, their families, community or society, which I think is important. For me, a woman of worth is someone who has self respect, who believes that she can change things in society.
  • I'm the worst liar in the world.
  • For me, a holiday is about taking a book and going to a mountain and reading.
  • I am someone who actually jumps headlong into everything and anything. I am not one of those people who likes to be scared; instead I have a tendency to be very, very open to everything. I really live; I love life.
  • One needs to constantly read up, practice and work, irrespective of your profession. If I feel as an actor that I know everything, then how will I to grow? How will I improve? I'll be stuck in a rut, and eventually I'll grow complacent.
  • You marry out of free will. If I marry, it will be from a personal choice, not some social compulsion or norm.
  • It makes me happy that people recognise me and want to click pictures with me. But sometimes, I want to be a common person. I want to go to a coffee shop and just chill. I miss driving my car with the windows rolled down.
  • I have aspirations to conquer the world. Let's see what happens.
  • I'd like to have a successful marriage, not for the sake of labelling or branding, but because I believe in the institution of marriage.
  • Style is all about being comfortable. I don't believe in following a style because it is a trend. I need to be comfortable in my clothes.
  • I could never fall in love just for money. I like my co-stars, and they are a bunch of good-looking men. But I've dated an actor. My dream man has to be a lot more than just good looking and rich!
  • It's not a responsibility to be a fashion diva. I enjoy it and also enjoy getting up in morning and putting on make-up, getting ready. I don't think there is any girl who doesn't like to look good and wear good clothes.
  • I like to save people, to take care of them... So, the pattern is that I date guys before they become big, and then they become successful and - whoops - there goes my project!
  • I always admired the beautiful stars of Hollywood and dreamt of becoming one of them.
  • Style is an expression of your individuality. Who you are and what your mood is, is what you wear.
  • As actors, we want to choose somebody who has conflicts. I can't be always playing the girl next door. What's the challenge in that?
  • In a lot of ways, if I were ambitious about anything - besides my career - I'd be ambitious about love. Ambitious in the sense that I really hope to find true love.
  • I always do things that are not the flavour of the season. And that's why people like me.
  • I always believe that it's better to be idealistic in love than be that cynic. That's the only way to survive a relationship.
  • I don't compete with actresses; I only compete with heroes.
  • I like wearing beautiful clothes, but that does not translate into my work. People don't like to see me as a glam doll in my movies. My audience and the media love me with two different perceptions. It's a strange, crazy situation.
  • I have an unending shoe closet. In fact, I don't even know how many shoes I have.
  • Indian junk food is my sin, even though I pretend to like Japanese.
  • I am very romantic. Given a choice, I'd do only romantic films!
  • When I get into relationships, I'm an all-or-nothing person. I just completely give in to the person. It becomes my first priority in life; family, friends and career follow.
  • People take things too personally - I don't. If someone says something about me, I let it go. But unfortunately, everyone isn't like that. So I'm trying to be more diplomatic - but people always want a headline from me!
  • 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.
  • I want to get fitter. And yes, I'm learning hot yoga to get a bikini body. I don't believe one has to sport a size-zero figure to flaunt it. One just needs a fit, sexy and toned body.
  • If you are dressing up, then dress to the hilt, else let it go easy. But no matter what, pay attention to the nails. Whether you keep it short, long, varnished or plain, it has to look good.
  • I didn't like Barbie dolls, so I used to have this overactive imagination, and I used to pretend to be all these different things. My weird childhood fetishes seem to have come to life now as an actor.
  • Indian women love to dress up like princesses. In India, people still go to the market to buy fabrics, garments are made-to-order, and friends come with you to the fittings.
  • Be it a trip to the dentist, getting an injection or even coming home with a good report card, my reward always had to be a book. I didn't care much for anything else.
  • I think most couples drift apart because of comparisons. Unfortunately, in our society a perfect match is when the man is more successful than the woman.
  • Many people make fun of me because I'm always so dressed up, but they don't understand that there's a little girl inside me who always wanted to be that dressed up but never got to do that because I was always a certain weight.
  • No relationship works without making an effort. That goes without saying. But you should never overcompensate.
  • I've always acted; in fact, I can't remember a time when I was not. When I was little, cinema was a game, then my father's job and now mine.
  • So many women are financially dependent on men. So why can't men be dependent on women? I'm totally okay with it.
  • I love being called a fashion icon!
  • Anytime I fall in love, I feel it's a first time. I have had no successful love story yet. I hope I will succeed next time when I fall in love.
  • I love Italian fashion - the sense of style that Italians have as part of their DNA. Nobody is like them.
  • Thanks to my father, I didn't have to face the tough side of life. Probably that's why I always chose love over money.
  • I love dressing up. I have people helping me with it. I am not going to take credit for that. I have a stylist, make-up and hair stylist.
  • I am Anil Kapoor's daughter, so I am always compared with legends. It is a part and parcel of my life.
  • I like bad boys... not really bad, but men with an edge... they should be clean but have that streak.
  • I am trying to be a girl who is real and has an opinion. Might say stupid things but not scared of men, and for me that's important.
  • I love eating. Unfortunately, I have to be really determined and control my foodie temptations. That is the only thing I don't like about being an actress; the constant need to check my weight. Otherwise, I love my job!
  • I had lost my way for some time, so I need to do things that I am happy with. It's not about being the number one heroine or money. It's about doing roles that I enjoy. My biggest ambition is happiness.
  • I don't know what to expect out of my films. My first two films were with extremely talented directors, and they didn't work. And my next two films were with newcomers, and they worked well. So I've stopped expecting anything from my movies.
  • I am mentally strong, but physically I'm constantly unwell. I internalise a lot of things, and if something stresses me or disturbs me, I don't talk about it and make myself sick with it.
  • Reading has made me more open, has improved my understanding, and has made me a better artiste, but it also makes me live in my own bubble. My mom keeps asking me, 'What do you read in that room the whole day?' Once I am into a book, I will finish it.
  • I like potential in people. If I find someone who has lot of potential and can do something with life, then I don't see bank balance, which family he comes from, or his religion.
  • I don't think most books can be justifiably translated on screen. The film versions can't convey the right emotion, fuel your imagination or allow you to visualise every line the way books do.
  • I don't shoot two films at the same time. I finish one character and get into another character because I change my look for every film. It's difficult, but I enjoy doing that.
  • I know people who enjoy having 10 people running around and doing things for them. I don't. I feel awkward in such situations. It gives you a false sense of importance.
  • My mom would always read a book to me at night from when I was three. Now, I can't go to sleep without reading a book. At the same time, once I read, it's difficult for me to go to sleep, as I have an overactive imagination and I start thinking.
