Padmaavat vs Pad Man: Sonam has a message for Bhansali, the director who launched her
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ is finally releasing on January 25 after a long struggle with the censor board, and actor Sonam Kapoor says she hopes no film faces the same fate as the upcoming period drama.
The 32-year-old worker, who pulled in her debut with Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ in 2007, wished the filmmaker all the best for the film.
“I haven’t played with him (Bhansali) for 10 years since my first film released. I have been in constant touch with him. I wish him all the best for his flick. I trust the film releases, and I won’t wish this (protest) on anybody,” Sonam told PTI.
Her next release ‘Padman’ is all set for box office clash with ‘Padmaavat.’
The officials at Viacom18 Motion Pictures, producer of the controversy-ridden film, confirmed the release date as January 25.
Sonam hopes the R Balki-directed film would help eliminate the stigma surrounding menstruation.
“At that place is a great deal of stigma attached to menstrual hygiene, and hopefully, a movie like this will change the mindset of people to an extent and even create awareness. I hope India is advancing towards a safer hereafter. “The idea to build any kind of artwork, be it films or anything is to reach out to more people, and propagate something to convert. Any alteration would be a welcome with our film,” she pronounced.
