In a recent interview with Huffington post, while speaking about having a controversy-free life, she said, “I have never dated anybody from the industry, never had a scandalous affair with someone, I avoid parties and I cannot touch alcohol.”

“No, I can’t do alcohol. I’m literally curled up in my bed with a book by 10 in the night almost every other day,” she added.

Owing her scandal-free career to her bodyguard and publicist, Sonam said, “I cannot imagine life without them, we’ve been with each other since I started out as an actor. They know everything. And they’re good at controlling it because very rarely does something about my personal life come out in the papers.”
On the work front, after garnering an universal acclamation for her performance in Ram Madhvani’s ‘Neerja,’ the 31-year-old actor will start working on home production ‘Veere di Wedding,’ which will also feature Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar.

She also, at that very moment, decides what we’ll be having for breakfast and where.

“I want to eat South Indian food at Dakshinayan,” comes the prompt reply. It’s a restaurant known for its South Indian fare, and located a stone’s throw away from her house. I find out later that she enjoys going there for a meal on the weekends.

I worry about our conversation getting interrupted by selfie seekers, and sure enough, a bit of that does happen, but thankfully it doesn’t become a problem.

Dressed impeccably in a black and gold ensemble, she arrives on time at the packed Juhu restaurant. A wave of recognition and palpable excitement ensues. A middle-aged woman gestures for a picture. Sonam obliges.

“I come here quite regularly. The people here know exactly what I like, even the amount of sugar I like in my filter coffee,” Sonam says, as she is greeted warmly by the staff. A celebrity sighting might not be a rarity in Juhu, but having a famous and bonafide star show up unexpectedly at the next table for Sunday breakfast is rather exciting even in these parts, the ground zero of India’s popular Hindi film industry.

This year has been off to a terrific start for Kapoor, with universal acclaim for her performance in Ram Madhvani’s Neerja. She’s now working on home production Veere di Wedding, which will also feature Kareena Kapoor Khan and Swara Bhaskar.
