Sonam Kapoor says 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 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,” Sonam told PTI.
Filmmaker R Balki is directing “Padman”, based on the life of 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.
