‘Players’ may have big names like Bipasha Basu, Bobby Deol and Neil Nitin Mukesh but Sonam Kapoor says the multi-starrer film belongs to her and co-star Abhishek Bachchan. The 26-year-old actress, who will be seen opposite Abhishek after Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi 6, said she plays the lead in every multi-starrer.

“I have always been the lead in my multi-starrer films. Abhishek and I were the lead in ‘Delhi 6’, ‘Thank You’ was about me and Akshay, ‘Aisha’ was all me and even now ‘Players’ is about Abhishek and I. The onus is on me as a lead. But at the same time there are so many supporting people in the film who help you make it a better product,” Sonam said candidly.

‘Players’, which is a remake of the Hollywood action thriller ‘The Italian Job’, will see Sonam in a rebellious avatar after playing a demure role in her last film ‘Mausam’. “My character Naina resembles what I am in my real life. She is rebellious but at the same time she is nice. Just out of college, she is a computer whiz-kid who agrees to be the part of a gold heist, where she has to hack the system to get valuable information, just because she is crazy for Abhishek in the film,” she added.

Her co-star Bipasha’s bikini shots in the film are being talked about and Sonam too has got a funky wardrobe designed by her younger sister Rhea Kapoor. “I feel Rhea has done a fabulous job in the film. Her garments have done wonders to my character. She has understood my character quite well and have designed clothes accordingly,” confessed the actress.

She had to shed kilos to look more edgy for the character and soon Sonam will be seen donning a bikini for an upcoming project. “This year my audience will see me in a sexy body. I had to undergo special weight training for ‘Players’. I am also taking classes for power and Vikram yoga because I want to have the best body,” she added before signing off.
