Actors Sonam Kapoor and Akshay Kumar were spotted shooting in Delhi for director R. Balki’s film Padman. On Thursday, the two were shooting inside Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport; and on Friday morning, they were at the Indian Institute of Technology campus.
The shoot of the film, which is being produced by Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna, generated a lot of curiosity when the stars stepped out for their lunch break at IGI.
The cast and crew of Padman are staying in Delhi for three days, before they wrap up their Delhi schedule. The film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham , a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore who invented low-cost sanitary napkins for the women in his village. He also created grassroots mechanisms for raising awareness on traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
On the second day of the shoot, they shot in the In Lecture Theatre Complex, of the Indian Institute of Technology campus in south Delhi. For the shoot in the closed IIT auditorium, actor Radhika Apte (in green sari) also joined the crew. The auditorium had only the crew and selected audience members.
