DELHI 6 has released and Sonam Kapoor, despite her limited screen time in the film, is getting decent appreciation coming her way for a natural act. While her director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra must have been happy with the feedback coming the way of his leading lady, Sonam Kapoor makes a startling revelation about her presence in the film. In a chat show on B4U, she declares that if Rakeysh had his way, Sonam may not have been a part of the film.

Recalls Sonam, ''Rakeysh was quite reluctant to cast me in the film.'' Though more details would be there for everyone's consumption on the show, Sonam admits that the portrayal of a middle class girl in the film was a challenge as it was completely contrary to her real life image.

CHECK OUT: DELHI 6 Movie review

Daughter of Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor has made her presence felt in the industry after SAAWARIYA and now DELHI 6. She continues to maintain that working under Sanjay Leela Bhansali had put her on a high scale with mammoth expectations.

Meanwhile, she has great things to say about her current director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra as well, ''Mr. Mehra is a visionary and an idealistic person; I was very comfortable working with him.''

She also claims to have shared a good connection with her co-star in the film, Abhishek Bachchan. ''I could connect with him as an equal and yet he advised as well as helped me when I got stuck. We share a great rapport.''

Vulnerable, yet independent and secure, she shares a very open and easy relation with her father. ''I am extremely proud of his achievements and the way my parents have brought me up.''
