“I think Imran Khan has a crush on me and wants my attention all the time,” said Sonam Kapoor of her co-star in Punit Malhotra’s I Hate Luv Storys that releases today through Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
“When I saw him in his debut film, I thought he looked hot (what lips, those eyelashes!)… but then I realised he was taken and I don’t get into other people’s territory,” she added. Her hero, however, who always wished somebody would cast them together after seeing Sonam in Saawariya, said dismissively, “Sonam has the habit of gushing whereas I’m always to the point… but she’s pretty.”
IHLS has already changed their on screen images. Imran’s now the new sex symbol of Bollywood and Sonam’s more than the traditional Indian girl we knew from her earlier films. He’s not buying that image. “I am what my family thinks I am… and they don’t think I’m sexy,” said Imran. But Sonam defends her co-star, “I think he is. In fact, Imran is gorgeous. But, I think, John Abraham has a better butt… Imran’s other qualities make up for it, he’s humble and sincere and takes criticism in his stride.” Imran is not impressed. He wouldn’t mind working with Sonam again but the next heroine he would like to romance is Kareena Kapoor! “And Priyanka, too,” he added.
