"I got her blessings for the film I am doing; I met her at the 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' premiere and that's when she told (blessed) me," Sonam said here.
"We are just taking the spirit of the character and putting it in a modern way. We are modernising it and just keeping the spirit of the girl. We are not sticking to the same story line," she added.
The original film, directed by the maverick Hrishikesh Mukherjee, also starred Ashok Kumar, Dina Pathak and Rakesh Roshan. 'Khubsoorat' is being remade by Sonam's actor father Anil Kapoor, and directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
Sonam said: "I am very excited to work with Shashank. He is the director and he is an absolute genius. The film is going on floors in August."
