Actress Sonam Kapoor says she never takes herself seriously and that is why her comments are often misinterpreted.
"I don't take myself seriously. Critics often criticise me personally and my films. Media sometimes misinterpret my statement but I have always taken them positively. Rather, I find them too amusing. I say something about somebody on some context. I never intend to land in a controversy," said Sonam, who was in the Capital to launch film-critic Anna MM Vetticad's book "The Adventures of an Intrepid Film Critc".
Sonam, 27, who is the daughter of actor Anil Kapoor, started her career five years ago with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Saawariya' opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
The film did not do well at the box-office but Sonam says she did not regret her decision.
"I remember how my debut film was criticised by the media. There were reports saying that I should not have done this film (Saawariya) as a newcomer. But I have no regrets about it. I did the film because it was based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's 'White Nights', which is one of my favourite short stories. Moreover, I had my childhood friend Ranbir as my co-star and renowned director Sanjay Leela Bhansali making it. I was very excited, so it was not a tough call for me," she said.
Asked about the importance of critics in her life, Sonam said they play an important part to better herself as an actress.
"I honestly feel we need each other. At the end you need a referee to judge your performance. You need a perspective which might be different from yours. You need the review to better yourself but that does not mean a critc should be too personal to judge a film," she added.
Sonam will be seen again with Abhay Deol in "Raanjhnaa" after "Aisha" and has denied the rumours that she has problem with the actor.
