It’s been a while since starlet Sonam Kapoor has been given the benefit of the doubt — her recent tweets on the meat ban resulted in her being trolled on social media. But the actor has come clean about her limited knowledge regarding box office details — she just doesn’t get numbers, reported The Indian Express.
Given that her recent film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with Salman Khan is raking in huge profits, Sonam admitted that she just couldn’t understand the math behind the numbers: “I don’t understand numbers. I just don’t get how it works. I used to receive a call from Fox (co-producer) every day about the collections and I would say ‘Is it good or bad?’ and they would say, ‘It’s a very good news’. This film has made those kind of numbers, so obviously many people have watched the film.”
Sonam of course is overwhelmed by the positive response from many of her fans in India as well as abroad: “Everybody is congratulating me. What I love is that I’m getting calls and messages from people who’ve never messaged or called in my life. And it’s people not from the industry. I’ve been getting a lot of calls from Indians abroad who’re watching the film and missing home so much. For me, that is the best thing, when something affects you emotionally in the best way.”
She also touched on her bad experiences on social media of late: “Predominantly, I receive a lot of negativity on social media, but now I’m receiving only positivity and that is overwhelming for me on a different scale. Thanks to Salman, Sooraj sir, it has nothing to do with me, but I’m very happy,” she said.
