In a multi-starrer film, how much of importance do you give to screen presence?
Sonam: People might or might not love my films, but they will always remember a Sakina (SAAWARIYA) or a Bittu (DELHI 6) or Aisha (AISHA), and may be now Naina (PLAYERS). For me, that's what is most important. It doesn't matter how big or small role I have. It's how you play it and what character you play.

CHECK OUT: Will PLAYERS carry NO ONE KILLED JESSICA's success baton?

You share screen with Bipasha Basu in the film. Is there any insecurity?
Sonam: Do we look insecure? See the promos and you will find we have our respective characters to play.

Your co-stars in PLAYERS (Bipasha Basu, Bobby Deol, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Omi Vaidya and Sikander Kher) call you Guruji (mentor). Why so?
Abhishek:, no. I am their shishya (student). I just did that film (Guru) but don't know why they still call me that (smiles).

Who did a better job in PLAYERS - Bipasha or Sonam?

Abhishek: Both Sonam and Bipasha are wonderful actors, dear friends and great professionals. Congratulations to both of them...whatever they are doing, they are doing a great job.

Sonam, you are sporting a bold and beautiful look in PLAYERS...
Sonam: Yes. I have donned a very different look in the film. But then, I have only done six films before PLAYERS. I am around for a very short period of time...this is going to be my fourth year in the industry. However, I always try to do something new in all my films. And yes, may be I am adventurous enough to do something like that in PLAYERS. I get bored doing same things in all films.

CHECK OUT: Abhishek goes out and out commercial in 2012

You are known as one of Bollywood's most stylish actors. So it must not have been difficult?
Sonam: Well...I had to prepare a lot for this film. I am used to doing films wherein I more or less portray the girl-next-door image. But, I sported a very stylish look in PLAYERS. Usually, I prefer to do such make-ups only when I make public appearances. Hopefully, I am able to translate that image of mine on celluloid as well.

Abhishek what's you take on piracy?
Abhishek: We try our best and I think the authorities are doing a good job. But there is always more that we can do. We need some very stringent anti-piracy laws. Once those are placed, I am sure we will be in a better position.
