Sonam Kapoor is not upset by the one-week delay in the release of her movie ‘Mausam’ as she feels that she has got an extra week to promote her ‘first true love story’.
"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’ve been waiting for the film to release for a long time. Another seven days don’t matter," Sonam said.
The directorial debut of eminent actor Pankaj Kapoor, ‘Mausam’ stars 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 September 16 to September 23.
The actress, who made her Bollywood debut 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 has starred in films like ‘Delhi-6’, ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, ‘Aisha’ and ‘Thank You’.
Sonam is confident she would last 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. (IANS)
