I respect Akshay for doing content-driven cinema: Sonam Kapoor

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 Kapoor says.

National award-winner Sonam Kapoor has 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 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 said.

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.

“I feel blessed to be working Balki sir. I am going to miss him after the shoot, he is a positive and crazy person. He doesn’t yell at anybody,” she said.

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 inspire me. I have worked with the best of directors and they have got the best out of me,” she says.
