Want to live fairytale romance through my movies: Sonam Kapoor

Love has always been an integral part of her films and Sonam Kapoor says she chooses romantic movies because fairytale love stories don't exist in real life.

The 28-year-old star's films - 'Saawariya', 'I Hate Luv Storys', 'Mausam' and upcoming 'Raanjhanaa' - all have love as the common theme. "I believe in love a lot. I think these movies and novels have spoilt us and we will never find a good boy. We look at boys and think... Do they exist? So I think if I am not getting them in real life, at least, I can see them in reel life.

That is why I am attracted to love stories," Sonam told in an interview. "I like the heroic and unconditional love because I know such boys don't exist in real life and I am very idealistic and romantic.

I want to live my life vicariously through these characters," Sonam added. In 'Raanjhanaa', slated to release this Friday, Sonam plays a small town Muslim girl who falls in love with a Hindu Brahmin boy from her locality.

Sonam believes the audience would be able to relate to her character of a modern, independent girl. "Zoya is a Muslim girl from Banaras who is the only child of her professor father.

She is very much loved and a lot of freedom has been given to her. The movie is about love but a more realistic one, with which people will be able to relate to," said the actress, who is also gearing up for the release of her film 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' this July.
