Her co-star Bipasha Basu has generated a lot of buzz by wearing a red two-piece but Sonam decided to keep her clothes on despite playing an edgy character.
"Bipasha is already wearing a bikini in the film so I don't think it was necessary for me to do the same. I don't have the body for it. I don't look like Bipasha or Deepika Padukone or Anushka Sharma. I am not thin. I have a big bum, big arms, I have cellulite," Sonam said.
"I have lost a lot of weight but I don't want to portray that as of now. I think I can look hot even without wearing a bikini. When I feel I need to work harder to acquire the perfect shape for a bikini I shall do so. As of now I don't have patience and I want to maintain healthy eating and normal lifestyle," Sonam added.
The 26-year-old actress said being bold does not mean stripping but to stand out from the rest.
"In my personal life, I have always been bold from the clothes I wear to how I talk. For me boldness does not necessarily mean stripping. I think people have wrong notion about boldness. For me, bold is being different. I dress differently and so people have started talking about it," she said.
Sonam essays the character of a hacker sharing the screen space with Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sikander Kher, Omi Vaidya and Bobby Deol.
There was a time when Sonam weighed 90 kg but she worked hard to get into shape ahead of her movie debut in 'Saawariya' in 2007.
When asked if she had any inhibitions about being fastidious on the celluloid, she said, "Some people work hard on their body, become size zero to wear a bikini, on the other hand, we have the example of Vidya Balan who is looking so hot despite putting on weight. She has done it to be in character, not because she wants to look glamorous.
"I think a person can look amazing wearing normal clothes. I have got an incredible response for my look in 'Players' even though I am not donning any revealing clothes."
Sonam is said to have exceptionally classy sense of fashion in tinsel town.
Her stylish avatar in 'Players' has been designed by her producer and sister Rhea.
