Sonam doesn’t get star-struck

MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, who is gearing up for the 69th Cannes Film Festival, says she doesn’t get “star-struck” by other celebrities at the red carpet.

“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,” Kapoor told IANS.

“If I meet Barbra Streisand or someone like that then I will be star-struck or else just celebrities don’t impress me,” she added.

Asked if she gets intimidated by western stars walking the red carpet, Kapoor said, “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 actress who has been elegantly blending the Indo-Western look at Cannes refrained from talking about her look at this year’s festival. However, she said that her ensemble will have “some Indian element”.

This will be Kapoor’s sixth year at the Cannes Film Festival as the global brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris. She will be walking the red carpet on May 15 and 16. The 69th Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to be held from May 11 to 22.
