Jaipur, Oct 15 (UNI) The new faces of bollywood Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor say their parents are more nervous and excited than them for their debute with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ''Sawariya'' up for release on November 9.

''Our parents are more nervous and excited than us. Whenever they see the promos of the film on TV their faces light up and tears well up in their eyes with nervousness and excitment, which reminds me of the responsibily of carrying on the legacy of the Kapoor Khandan'' said Ranbir Kapoor.

During an interaction with the press in the Pink City today Sonam Kapoor exclaimed, ''I never thought of acting before my guru and director Sanjya Leela Bhanslai offered me the role. 'Sawariya' has come as a blessing to me which I think I don't deserve''.

In sheer contrast, the blue-eyed boy expressed, ''I always wanted to be a part of the film industry and it was a dream for me''.

Ranbir pursued a course in acting from the 'School of Visual Art' in New York before taking the plunge.

Sonam had earlier worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali as an assistant director and wanted to be behind the scenes before she was offered the film. ''Now I can only act nothing else,'' says Sonam, the daughter of ever green Anil Kapoor.

On star sons and daughters dominating Bollywood, Sonam was of the view that like any other field, film world was no exception.

However, there is space for everybody, said she citing her father Anil Kapoor, Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and many others had no claim to lineage to enter the film world.

According to Ranbir, being from a filmi khandan ''makes your entry in films quite easy but at the same time you have to live with the accomopanying disadvantage of comparisons with your father who was an icon and this hightens expectations of the audience''.

The Kapoor scion considers her father Rishi Kapoor his role model but wants to be his own man as has tried not to be influenced by any actor.
