After Kangana Ranaut, Govinda and Fawad Khan, Sonam Kapoor has now fallen prey to the editing table. The actor has revealed that the story arc betwen her and Akshay Kumar was substantially edited in Padman. But Sonam holds no grudges against the makers of the movie.
“There was more to that relationship than what was shown. It was edited out to make the film shorter. At the end of the day, if we were able to say what we wanted to say, I think it’s okay," Sonam told HuffPost.
Sonam thinks one should not be so insecure about the screen-timing. "You cannot be insecure about such things and constantly kill yourself over screen time. That’ll make you suffer. You got to be confident about the value you bring to the film as well as be conscious of what the film is contributing to the society at large,” she added.
Padman, directed by R Balki and produced by Twinkle Khanna, is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who revolutionised the concept of sanitary pad distribution in India by creating a low-cost machine.
