Ac­tor Sonam Kapoor (left) ap­pre­ci­ates the fact that

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.”
