Mumbai: Sonam Kapoor says that Bandini and Guide are among her favourite female-oriented films and she now hopes that her own Neerja also joins this list.

Bandini (1963) directed by legendary Bimal Roy starred Nutan playing a prisoner, while Guide which released two years later saw Waheeda Rehman coming up with an excellent performance.

Asked about the International Women's Day to be celebrated on 8 March, Sonam said: "I think Women's Day should be celebrated everyday. But I'm happy that we're giving one day for Women's Day. Women are multi-taskers and we can do anything, so let's celebrate the fact that we are capable of doing anything and more than a lot of men."

Sonam, who has acted in numerous female-centric films such as Aisha, Khoobsurat and Dolly Ki Doli, says that the trend of actresses not given enough importance in films is now changing.

"I have been trying to get that importance since the age of 23, and that's why I've come here and promoting a film like Neerja. Since I've joined the industry 8-9 years back, we've been moving gradually towards our goal, so I'm looking forward to it."

"I had done a film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which shone at the box-office. And according to me, my role was very good and lengthy. If Salmanji (Khan) was working for 200 days, I was working for 180 days, so it's upto to the choice. I choose to do films like that, and if the other heroines take up such choices, then the change will happen," she said.
