Sonam Kapoor shares special video to celebrate 6 years of ‘Pad Man’


Acclaimed Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja recently took a joyful stroll through her memories to celebrate a milestone—the sixth anniversary of her impactful film, ‘Pad Man.’ Connecting with her audience, Sonam Kapoor shared delightful behind-the-scenes footage on her Instagram story, offering a glimpse of the laughter and camaraderie that characterized the production of this extraordinary movie. In the shared video, fans were treated to candid moments featuring the vibrant ensemble including Sonam herself, the acclaimed director R Balki, leading man Akshay Kumar, and fellow co-stars as they brought this significant story to the silver screen.

Drawing from the remarkable life of innovator Arunachalam Muruganantham, ‘Pad Man’ earned its place as a National Award-winning film that broke barriers and contributed to social change. Under R Balki’s directorial vision, the story of Muruganantham’s tireless efforts to revolutionize menstrual hygiene in rural India was transformed into a narrative that inspired and resonated with a broad audience. As the protagonist, Akshay Kumar embodied the role of Muruganantham, and alongside Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte, the cast delivered performances that heightened the film’s meaningful storytelling, earning critical and commercial success and a warm reception worldwide.

The celebration of ‘Pad Man’ comes at a poignant time for Sonam Kapoor, marking her return to cinema after embracing motherhood. Her recent appearance in ‘Blind,’ directed by Shome Makhija, has marked her strong comeback on the big screen. Sharing the limelight with other distinguished actors such as Purab Kohli, Vinay Pathak, and Lillete Dubey, Sonam Kapoor’s role in ‘Blind’ demonstrated her versatility and commitment to her craft. This film also signifies her first performance following her maternity leave—Sonam welcomed her son Vayu in August of the previous year.

Keen on balancing her professional endeavors with personal life, Sonam Kapoor revealed in a heartfelt confession that while she had taken a hiatus to focus on her pregnancy and to spend precious early moments with her son, her passion for acting remains unquenched. With two new projects in the pipeline—a television show and a feature film—and a projected release a year away, she articulated her intention to undertake not more than two acting projects annually. This decision underscores Sonam’s desire to maintain a harmony between her flourishing career and cherishing time with her family.

The shared moments and updates not only stand as a testament to Sonam Kapoor’s accomplishments but also shine a light on her forward-thinking approach to her career and life. Her zest for selecting diverse and meaningful projects reflects a discerning approach that aligns with a new era of Indian filmmaking—one that values quality storytelling and the empowerment of its audience.

As ‘Pad Man’ continues to influence and ignite discussions on menstrual hygiene and women’s health, its legacy endures, and the celebration of its six-year mark is a reminder of the film’s enduring influence. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s reflections on this special occasion serve not only as a tribute to the past but point forward, illustrating a bright and balanced future for one of Bollywood’s most poignant storytellers.
