Akshay Kumar (above) does films on socially relevant subjects. After their first film together, Anees Bazmee’s Thank You (2011), Akshay and Sonam are now working together for Padman, which has been produced by Akshay’s wife, Twinkle Khanna.
“This is the second time I am working with Akshay. It was a completely different experience. I respect Akshay for doing relevant and content-driven films. As an actor, he is honest about his work and as a person he is very disciplined,” Sonam says. The film, directed by R Balki, is based on the life of the social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India, by creating a low-cost sanitary napkin machine.
Sonam says she feels fortunate to work with Balki. “I am going to miss him after the shoot, he is a positive and crazy person. He doesn't yell at anybody.”
