Proud of being a part of Hindi cinema, Sonam Kapoor says the industry’s ‘golden period’ was in the 1960s and she longs for it to return.
Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is known for her distinct sense of style and fashion, says the 1960s was a golden period for Indian cinema, and she would love it if it comes back.
"I can only say that the 1960s was the golden period of Indian cinema and I hope that time comes back again," the 27-year-old said here Friday at the screening of Bombay Talkies, a film made to pay tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema.
Sonam says she is humbled to be a small part of Indian cinema.
"My family has been a part of the industry since the time of 'Mughal-e-Azam' and I am very excited that I am also a very small part of it. Like it is said 'Jiyo hazaaron saal', that is the best thing to say (for Indian cinema's 100 years)," Sonam said.
Sonam Kapoor is the daughter of actor Anil Kapoor and grand-daughter of late film producer Surinder Kapoor, who was an assistant director on the epic film "Mughal-e-Azam."
He later produced films like "Ek Shriman Ek Shrimati", "Woh Saat Din" and "Judaai".
Sonam made her Bollywood debut with Saawariya in 2007.
