Sonam Kapoor makes a brave decision to play a lesbian role in "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga." However, she absolutely has no regret about it.

Famous Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor's latest movie Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is ready to hit the cinema at the beginning of February. While she is currently taking part in her movie promotion, she also expresses that she does not believe in "labels" when it comes to choosing a new project.

On Monday, Sonam had a chance to interact with the press at the movie conference. At the event, other actors in the main cast such as Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao also made their appearances. The movie director Shelly Chopra Dhar and its producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra joined the cast as well in Mumbai for this event.

All eyes are on Sonam as she plays an LGBT role in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. In the country, same-sex couples are still not widely accepted. Indians think of LGBT as "taboo" even though the Supreme Court has already decriminalized homosexual sex. People might know about gay; however, they do not understand clearly the lesbian world. The movie seems to be relatable as it takes the matter into the new level - the queer, the Indian women and their marriages.

Sonam was asked about her thoughts on her brave choice of acting a lesbian and she seemed to be determined.

The actress also answered the question of whether or not she was a pioneer when it comes to choosing bold roles. She gave out a modest reply, saying that she was humble enough to know what kind of actress she was. According to Sonam, she could not follow what others do, so she just focused on doing what she could do.
