Actor Sonam Kapoor, who will be representing India at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival, feels Indian cinema is unique because of its emotional content.
The Indian film industry, touted as one of the largest in the world, turned 100 this year and churns out over 1,000 films every year. “I think our cinema has a lot of emotion. Even now when there is world cinema, we have our own identity. I love the fact that there is so much song and drama. I feel that we bring the emotional content to world cinema,” Sonam said recently.
“My family has been part of the film industry for years. My grandfather (Surinder Kapoor) was an assistant director in Mughal-E-Azam, and then got into production. My dad (Anil Kapoor) has been there for so long. We are proud to be a part of the industry,” said the 27-year-old whose uncle Boney Kapoor is a well-known filmmaker and he is married to actor Sridevi.
