Sonam Kapoor: 'I don't want to be arm candy'

Sonam Kapoor has appealed for the acting world to take her seriously, saying that she does not want to be arm candy.

Kapoor, 23, told the Indo-Asian News Service that while she has gained a reputation for taking gritty roles she does want to do commercial films, as long as the parts she is offered are worthwhile.

She explained: "I have never looked down upon hardcore commercial cinema.

"It's just that I never wish to be an arm candy who does four songs, a couple of scenes and then vanishes away from screen. Those are not at all the kind of roles that excite me."

The actress revealed earlier this month that she plans to head to New York this summer for acting classes in a bid to perfect her craft.
