Sonam Kapoor: 'Shahid is superb'


By Hindustan Times

New Delhi, June 28 -- All is well between Sonam Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor. At least, that's what Sonam suggests as she trashes rumours that suggest she and her Mausam co-star are having ego issues.

"Utter rubbish. It's very sad that such things come up about people I've had a great time working with," she says, also hinting at reports suggesting she wasn't happy with director Pankaj Kapur's leisurely shooting schedule.

Apparently, she had asked her father Anil Kapoor to sort out the issue with him. "Not true at all," retorts Sonam. But isn't Mausam running behind schedule? "Since it has been hit by a few mishaps and production issues, besides me falling ill, things have been exaggerated. But it's a special film for me," she says.

Full of praise for her co-star, Sonam says, "Shahid is superb. And I say that because he is really hard-working and takes his job very seriously. He is an actor who always gives his 100 per cent." Interestingly, Sonam is possibly the only co-star with whom the young male star hasn't been romantically linked with. "Thankfully, we haven't been paired yet. But I don't know how to respond to the question," she laughs. "You know, we became great friends during the shooting of Mausam. So whichever girl ends up with him will be very lucky because he is a nice guy."

After wrapping up Mausam and Abbas-Mustan's Players, the 26-year-old plans to take a short break from work. Her father's remake of Freaky Friday (2003) is also not scheduled to go on floors in the near future. "We don't even have a script for it yet," she explains.
