The royals lost their kingdoms long back in India, but this princess seems determined to rule again – albeit the tinsel world of Bollywood.

Having got critical acclaim for her last Bengali venture 'Antarmahal', Soha Ali Khan is now ready with two English films, one of them with stalwarts such as Naseeruddin Shah and Victor Banerjee .

"Yes, I am working in two English films now. One is called 'Meridian', while the other with Naseeruddin Shah and Victor Banerjee is 'Post Card'," she says.

Though disappointed at the failure of last year's blockbuster Rang De Basanti to make it to the Oscars, she wishes all the luck to Mira Nair 's Water which is in the fray as a Canadian entry.

"Obviously I am disappointed that Rakeysh Mehra's 'Rang De Basanti' did not make it to the Oscars," she says when asked about her reaction to the film's exit from the world's most coveted honour in cinema.

"I am all for Mira Nair's Water. After all, it is an Indian film," she says.

"But it is a Canadian entry," she adds with a smile on her face.

Having already experimented with different genres and languages in cinema in her short tenure in the tinsel world, Soha believes good cinema cannot be categorised into genres or languages.

"I love to work in good films. Whether it is Hindi, Bengali or English, it does not really matter," she says.

"All that matters is good films and good directors," says the daughter of legendary actress Sharmila Tagore and former Indian cricket captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi.

Soha started her career in cinema with the Bengali film 'Iti Srikanto' in the year 2004. Since then she has excelled in many different genres with absolute élan.

After getting great critical acclaim for her first film in Bengali, she came back with the commercial love story Dil Maange More with Shahid Kapur . Though the film bombed at the box office, her versatility was appreciated by movie pundits.

Later her pairing with another star kid Abhay Deol was appreciated a great deal in the film Ahista Ahista .

"It was great working with Abhay in 'Ahista Ahista'. Now I am working again with him in 'Meridian'," she says.

Apart from her penchant for acting, Soha also loves music.

She feels, that the younger generation of the country should listen to Indian classical music so that they remain aware about their roots.

"I love hearing all kinds of music including classical, jazz and contemporary Hindi songs. I hear everything that touches my heart," she says.

"It is important for the younger generation to listen to classical music as at times they forget to follow and appreciate their heritage," said Soha, who was in the capital on Friday to release the latest album by Sarod players Aman and Ayan.
