Known for her designer threads, the actress has to try real hard to play a village girl!

Fashionista Sonam Kapoor is presently working hard on how to dress down. The actress, known more for her style statements, is preparing to go de-glam to essay a simple village girl in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s biopic on Milkha Singh.

Though the film rolled earlier this year, Sonam was not part of the shoot schedule. She joins the unit in August for the next shooting stint. What’s adding to her excitement is not only going sans make-up and designer label but also the fact that she will be shooting on the India-Pakistan border.

Says Sonam, “I have never been to the Indo-Pak border before and shooting there will be an experience for me. I am very excited to start shooting. I have been working hard to play the character of a village girl.” She has dressed simply in her earlier films like Delhi 6 and a bit in Mausam. And now, the star feels this will be real stark, as she has not gone so rustic and simple before on screen.

Though her co-star Farhan Akhtar has interacted with the Flying Sikh as preparations for the shoot, Sonam is yet to meet him and his family members. Her character is depicted as bringing about a big change in Milkha Singh’s life.
