Screen timing does not matter to me: Sonam Kapoor

The actor plays a pivotal role in the upcoming film Pad Man, starring Akshay Kumar in the lead

Published: 18th January 2018

Sonam Kapoor, who plays a pivotal role in the Akshay Kumar-starrer Pad Man, says if the character is substantial, she does not mind playing a small yet important role in a film. "It was the same case in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag also," she adds.

After her performance in Neerja which not only received positive reviews, but also got Sonam a special mention at the National Awards, has her criteria for choosing a film changed? "It is a combination of the story and my character; screen timing does not matter to me, honestly. One does not have to be in every single frame of the film to create an impact. If my part is well-crafted, even with three scenes, my character can make a major impact on the story. And that's what matters," she says.

Sonam says she is primarily interested in working with good directors because filmmaking is a collaborative art where working with the right team brings the best of every creative individual.

So, who are the director she wants to work with? "There are actually few directors that I would love to work with again, like R Balki, Rajkumar Hirani, Ram Madhvani. I loved working with them. That apart, I want to work with Shoojit Sircar, Vishal Bhardwaj and Shimit Amin."

Despite her film choices, the tag of 'fashionista' never goes away from her image. But she says she will always remain unapologetic about it. "I love wearing make-up and beautiful clothes. I think there is nothing wrong with it. If someone judges me based on that, it is their problem not mine," she says, adding, "Seriously, I think when it comes to films, in last few of them, all my directors wanted me not to wear make-up because they think I have very good skin. That is why the no make-up looks. However, I do things in real life that I cannot get a chance to do on-screen. So yes, in public events, parties I flaunt good clothes."

While Sonam's forthcoming release Pad Man will hit the screens on January 25, later in the year she will be seen in Veere Di Wedding which comes out on June 1.
