Glad to be part of a movie that is trying to change things for women, Sonam is thankful she belongs to a family with a progressive mindset.
A jovial personality, Sonam Kapoor is someone who makes friends everywhere she goes. And understandably, she’s been pals with the actor and producer duo of her next, Pad Man, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna.
And with a laugh, she reveals a little secret, “Akshay Tina se bohot darte hain (Akshay is scared of Twinkle, or Tina)!”
Talking about her experience on the sets, Sonam says, “Actually, I’ve known Tina for many years. During my interactions with R. Balki (director), Tina would never interfere. There’s an etiquette we follow on the sets. He’s the captain of the ship and has to take a call. And this is what Tina follows too.”
Glad to be part of a movie that is trying to change things for women, Sonam is thankful she belongs to a family with a progressive mindset. “At home, us girls aren’t treated any differently than the boys. In fact, after Rhea and me, dad wished to have another girl child when Harshvardhan was expected. Dad was so happy when Rhea was born. We would all get a pocket money of `500, including Harsh. And since I was the oldest kid, I got a whole room to myself, while Rhea and Harsh had to share one.”
Clearly, Sonam is very fond of Rhea. “I have a great bond with her. She takes care of my style statement and works tirelessly to give me the best-designed clothes,” she gushes.
As she reminisces her childhood, Sonam reveals that she herself started her period pretty late in life — at the age of 15. “I would always feel something was wrong with me. I would cry and ask my mom why I hadn’t started my period. But she would console me and tell me sometimes girls get it late. But I was so happy and relieved when I did get it,” smiles Sonam.
