Prod her about the love in her life and Sonam Kapoor comes up with a reply which almost sounds rehearsed, courtesy the countless number of times that she has faced this question. Over the last 7-8 months, there have been rumours floating around her and Punit Malhotra, director of last Friday's release I HATE LUV STORYS, being a pair. However, it's the stance of 'we are just good friends' that Sonam is willing to take.
When asked to comment about the stories floating around her and Punit, Sonam says with a smile, 'Punit and I are good friends. At the same time I am not dating anyone right now.'
One does complain though that this was quite short and diplomatic. However, refusing to bite the bait, Sonam says, 'I think it is a personal matter. Even if I am dating anyone, I am not going to speak about it for sure. There is nothing to be discussed.'
What she is willing to discuss though are things which are not so personal. While IHLS deals with the subject of self denial when it comes to matters of heart, Sonam says that in real life, she has indeed seen something like this happening to people in her friend circle.
'I have actually seen that happening all the time and especially with boys', giggles Sonam, 'It is fun because most of the boys that I have hung around with are like that only to begin with. They say that mere saath aisa kabhi kuch nahi hone waala; this is something only for girls. But once they get hitched, their personality changes. Most of my guys friends have been through this phase.'
