Sonam Kapoor has revealed a secret about her ‘PadMan’ co-star Akshay Kumar. The film, which is being produced by Twinkle Khanna, also stars Radhika Apte in a lead role. Now, Sonam Kapoor who is known for her upbeat attitude, got candid in a recent interview and revealed that Akshay is scared of his wife Twinkle.
“Akshay Tina se bohot darte hain (Akshay is scared of Tina)!”, Sonam was quoted as saying to Deccan Chronicle.
The Neerja actress also talked about her friendship with Twinkle Khanna and said, “Actually, I’ve known Tina for many years. During my interactions with R. Balki (director), Tina would never interfere. There’s an etiquette we follow on the sets. He’s the captain of the ship and has to take a call. And this is what Tina follows too.”
Sonam also spoke about Pad Man vs Padmaavat clash with a leading tabloid and said, “Is it really coming? It is not announced officially, isn’t it? If it is, it is good. There is a need for competition when it comes to films and high time that the film releases. Good cinema is good cinema. I don’t believe in competition. Our film is very simple and sweet, and honestly, I am just happy that the film is releasing, more than anything else, and I hope the film does well. I am pretty sure that there is no official statement from the production house of the film (Padmavati) release.”
Directed by R. Balki, Pad Man is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who invented low cost sanitary napkins. The movie is all set to hit the screens on January 25 and is likely to fight the box office battle with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat featuring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
