The 33-year-old actress, who is currently shooting for The Zoya Factor said: "A film works when you have belief in a story and your character. Then it definitely works out. I also look if the story or my character is going to impact society and is it going to entertain people while saying something. I want to be part of films that say something to the society and entertain as well."
Sonam Kapoor, who will complete a decade in the industry this year, was last seen in Sanju, which is a biopic based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt.

Sonam said that she is "really happy" that none of her films have failed to perform at the box office in the last six years. "From the time Raanjhanaa released, things are looking good. I am really happy about it. I had couple of directors who believed in me and also there was a shift in perception. It has been six years and thank God I have not seen any film that has failed," Sonam Kapoor told PTI.
Raanjhanaa,Khoobsurat, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Neerja, PadMan, Veere Di Wedding have been significant films in the actresses' career so far. Neerja fetched Sonam her first ever National Award while Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Veere Di Wedding had remarkable run at the box office.

Speaking about why she chose to do the film, Sonam Kapoor said: "Everybody thought I should play Zoya, it is a fun part. I wanted to do something light-hearted but everyone wanted me to do drama. After Khubsoorat, I am doing a light-hearted film. Abhishek Sharma (director) is an amazing person. I have started shooting with Dulquer Salmaan." The Zoya Factor is a movie based on Anuja Chauhan's bestseller with the same title.
Sonam Kapoor also has Shelly Chopra Dhar's film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga in the line-up. In the film, Sonam Kapoor is sharing the screen space with her father Anil Kapoor for the first time.
