Sonam Kapoor empathises with military wives

Sonam Kapoor has said that she empathises with women whose boyfriends and husbands serve in the armed forces.

The Delhi 6 star plays the love interest of an Air Force officer in the film Mausam.

Speaking to The Hindustan Times, she said: "I play a ballet dancer in the film, and I eventually get involved with someone who is in the Air Force. You have to be a different person to handle that.

"That made me empathise with a lot of people in the country... people all over the world who have husbands, boyfriends, brothers in the forces... Sometimes, you have to be stronger than the men themselves."

The 26-year-old actress said that the women had to learn to be patient.

"I think waiting is the most difficult thing. You don't know where they'll get posted. When you're married, they are away for long periods of time. I read a lot of such stories.

"You feel they are fighting for a good cause, so there's a whole fascination. There's some mystery and romanticism about them."

The actress reportedly came under fire from the film's director Pankaj Kapoor for refusing to do a kissing scene with co-star Shahid Kapoor in the film.

Kapoor beat off competition from Sonakshi, Narmada and Shazahn Padamsee to get the role.Enjoy the beautyful pictures of Sonam Kapoor.
