Sonam Kapoor thinks Kangana would play better 'shopaholic' than her
New Delhi [India], Oct 8 (ANI): Sonam Kapoor recently revealed on a chat show that she would like to play the Rebecca aka 'the girl in green scarf' in the Bollywood version of 'Confessions of a Shopaholic' but also thinks Kangana Ranaut would do a better job.

The 31-year-old fashion diva appeared on Neha Dhupia's chat show, where she was asked who she would cast in the Bollywood adaptations of movies including the famous 2009 American film, ' Confessions of a Shopaholic.'

"It's one of my favorite actresses. I would say me but again, I would say Kangana Ranaut," the actress admitted.

The movie is romantic comedy based on the shopaholic series of novels by Sophie Kinsella. Directed by P. J. Hogan, the film stars Isla Fisher playing Rebecca Bloomwood, a shopaholic journalist.

Sonam was also given other Hollywood movies to think on who, from Bollywood, would play the best roles.

For '50 Shades of Grey,' her choice is Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra.

"I haven't seen the film and it was one of those books that I read and I'm sorry to say, I enjoyed it. It was so bad that it's good! I actually like the characters a lot in that. Who looks virginal? Maybe Alia and for the boy, someone really hot. Siddharth!" she said.

For 'The Devil Wears Prada,' the 'Neerja' star imagined Shabana Azmi and Shraddha Kapoor sharing the screen as the notoriously practical 'Miranda Priestly' and the young 'Andrea Sachs' played by Meryl strip and Anne Hathaway respectively.

"Obviously for Meryl Streep's character, I would say Shabana Azmi because she is so brilliant and for Anne Hathaway's character, I would say Shraddha Kapoor," she said.

The reason for Sonam choosing the 29-year-old actress was because she felt "Anne Hathaway has this vibe which Shraddha has" and the 'Aashiqui 2' star is cute which Anne Hathaway totally is. (ANI)
