'Salman is not shorter than me'

She is charming, vivacious and very friendly.

The she in question is actor Anil Kapoor's daughter Sonam Kapoor, who came to our office on November 2 for a chat.

Readers got to know more about the actress and her debut film, Saawariya in this entertaining tete-a-tete. For those who missed the chat, here's the transcript.

Sonam Kapoor says, Hello all the readers! A very happy Diwali in advance. I'm going to have a blast chatting with you today. Bring the questions on...

andy asked, Hi! You have been assisting Sanjay Leela Bhansali... in Direction. How come you turned to acting? Was it only on the insists of Mr. Bhansali or there was your inner voice to which you have listened to?
Sonam Kapoor answers, I think it was a combination of both, though he did give me the initial nudge into self-reflection. I realise that I am an actor, so I'll forever be grateful to him realising my true self.

Sonam Kapoor answers, Thank you, I guess. I'm glad you saw someone you loved in me.

kkkkk asked, how is it working with salman khan?is salman shorter than u whats ur height?
Sonam Kapoor answers, No, Salman is not shorter than me, we are the same height. And he is a rock star in the true sense of the word.

emmarulz asked, sonam,hav u been told you resemble anyone before. I personally think you look like Rekha-the great actress.
Sonam Kapoor answers, That's such a huge compliment, I hope I maintain myself as well as she did.
