Mumbai: Actress Sonam Kapoor, who will be seen in the remake of 'Khubsoorat', says it's a contemporary film and the story does not ape the 1980 hit movie.

The original 'Khubsoorat' had Rekha in the lead role of a happy-go-lucky girl and she was joined by the likes of Ashok Kumar, Dina Pathak and Rakesh Roshan in the cast.

"Honestly, the script of 'Khubsoorat' is extremely contemporary. There's nothing about it that resembles the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film," said Sonam while talking about the film's setting.

"We had the rights to the film and we took the character, spirit of the character and have put her in another setting. It is nothing like the old film at all. It's just the essence and charm of the girl that's the same. She comes and changes people's lives. And that was the essence of 'Khubsoorat'," she added.

Are you ready to face comparisons with Rekha?

"I don't worry about comparisons. Since I am Anil Kapoor's daughter, I always get compared to someone or the other," she said.

The remake is being produced by Sonam's father, actor Anil Kapoor, and Shashanka Ghosh is directing it.
