I respect Akshay for doing content-driven cinema: Sonam

Monday, May 15, 2017

Sonam Kapoor said she appreciates the fact that Akshay Kumar is touching upon socially-relevant subjects through his films. After their first outing in Anees Bazmee's 2011 'Thank You', Akshay and Sonam have now collaborated in 'Padman'.

"This is the second time I am working with Akshay and it was a completely different experience. I respect Akshay for doing relevant and content-driven films. As an actor, he is honest to his work and as a person he is very disciplined," said Sonam.

Filmmaker R Balki is directing 'Padman', based on the life of a Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkin machine.

Sonam said she feels fortunate to be working with Balki. "I feel blessed to be working with Balki sir. I am going to miss him after the shoot, he is a positive and crazy person. He doesn't yell at anybody."

The 31-year-old actress has also collaborated with Rajkumar Hirani for the Sanjay Dutt biopic. Without sharing details about her role, Sonam says she gets inspired by working with such eminent filmmakers. "The kind of films they (Balki and Hirani) have made are amazing. Their passion, honesty and integrity inspires me. I have worked with the best of directors and they have got the best out of me," she said.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be able to achieve much of what you want to do. However you will have to work really hard for it. There are certain jealous elements around you that will try to create obstacles in your path. The only way to overcome such forces is to ignore and concentrate on your work. At a social function or party you feel bored. It is not easy to make friends that fast so look for the best in others. Be a good listener and you will be surprised at how many friends you make.
