'It's okay to be a mess,' says Sonam Kapoor as she talks about her characters in 'Khoobsurat' and in the 'The Zoya Factor.' 'The Zoya Factor' is an adaptation of Anuja Chauhan's book about a girl named Zoya Singh Solanki who ends up becoming a lucky charm for the cricket world cup team. What Sonam really love about Zoya is the fact that she is a "huge mess".

"A lot of girls tend to be like, 'Listen, if I am such a mess, how am I ever going to succeed in life?' But I want to say, it's okay to be a mess. I think that's what I said through Mili in 'Khoobsurat' and that's what I liked about Zoya as well. I like to play girls who are regular and normal, who have regular problems because all of us have them," Sonam said.

"After my wedding, I have put on weight, my skin goes bad, I have really bad dark circles and I want all the girls to know that it's okay... In India, there is so much pressure on girls... Whether it's about who you're getting married to, what is his education, why is your skin looking like that, 'don't go to sunny places you will become dark', 'why have you cut your hair', 'don't go out so much, don't go out drinking.' So I think it's important for me to play characters who are normal. That's what I loved about Zoya - she is very normal and average," added the actress.
