There’s something different about Sonam Kapoor, and I sense it immediately. The last time that Sonam Kapoor and I sat down to talk over peppermint tea, we talked about her upcoming film Neerja, based on the tragically short life of Neerja Bhanot, who gave her life to save the passengers of a hijacked plane in 1986. At the time, she was effervescent, bursting with passion about the woman whose story she would immortalize on screen. It’s all she wanted to talk about.
“Working on Pad Man, which is a biopic, was very important for me to do because of the state of women in our country,” says Kapoor. (Al-Arabiya)
“I think it was about supporting this character, and understanding why my character was so important in this film,” says Kapoor. (Al Arabiya)
Pad Man is in now theaters across the Middle East. (Al-Arabiya)
