Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte’s Pad Man has performed decently well at the box office by earning over Rs 74 crore. Actress Sonam Kapoor, who also plays a crucial role in the social biographical drama said that her role was edited to make the film shorter. In a recent interview with Huffington post, Sonam said, “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.”
The actress also said that for her screen time is not important, “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.” (Also Read: WATCH: Sonam Kapoor silences a journalist who asked her about the deleted Deepika Padukone video)
