She told the Indo-Asian News Service: "I have been trying and I have been auditioning. But I haven't got anything substantial yet which I would feel inspirational enough for me to take the time out and go.

"I'm looking for something right now."

The pretty starlet is looking forward to rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty when she attends the Cannes Film Festival in France this month.

She told PTI: "I would love to watch a couple of films. It's a place where you get to see many films all over the world. But my schedule depends on the time I have. If I have time, I would definitely watch the film I walk for. I would love to meet celebrities, who would help me to evolve and give a different perspective of life."

Sonam - who made a brief appearance in Coldplay's 'Hymn For The Weekend' video - is the daughter of Indian actor and producer Anil Kapoor but insists that her father's fame is not the reason for her success.

She told IANS: "It takes a lot of courage to wait for the right thing to do. I don't take money from my father. Just because I'm Anil Kapoor's daughter doesn't mean he pays my bills.

"People are more respectful because I'm Anil Kapoor's daughter, but my bills don't get paid because I'm his daughter."
