I’m not “star-struck”: Sonam Kapoor



Sonam Kapoor, the Bollywood beauty who is going for the 69th Cannes Film Festival, states that she is not “star-struck” by other celebrities on the red carpet.

Sonam told in an interview as, “It doesn’t matter which part of the world you are from whether you are white, brown or black everybody is the same so I don’t get star struck unless I really respect the person,” 

She further continued as “If I meet Barbra Streisand or someone like that then I will be star-struck or else celebrities don’t impress me,”

It was inquired that whether she gets panic-stricken by western stars walking the red carpet, Sonam replied as, “I am so tall so when I walk, it’s completely different because I wear really high platform heels. So, I think it’s very difficult for anyone to intimidate me because they are like so small but I don’t get intimidated by people because people are just people”.


The artist who has been gracefully merging the Indo-Western look at Cannes abstained from discussing regarding her gaze at this year’s festival. Though, she stated that her outfit will have “some Indian element”.

The 30-year-old added that “What I will be wearing that I don’t know yet… It’s a secret. But I am the proudest Indian you will ever see. I love India and I love everything that’s Indian, so even if I don’t want an Indian designer, there will always be an inspiration. I will have some Indian element which represents India,”

The Nerja actor also declared that she doesn’t want to take outfit prior to walking the red carpet.


She told that “It’s always better to not be stressed and it’s always better to have a glass of champagne before you go to the red carpet. I don’t drink, though, so this year I don’t know what I am going to do. If I was really as stressed about what people think about what I am going to wear, then I don’t think I would be recognized for my fashion,”

She continued by saying that “The very reason I started getting recognized as fashionable was that I was just out there and wore what I wanted to and people appreciated that. That’s when this whole revolution of fashion started,”
