Want to be a part of good films: Sonam Kapoor

The actress has three films scheduled to be released this year, Pad Man, Veere Di Wedding and the untitled Sanjay Dutt biopic.


Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film Pad Man, says that she wants to do good work and be a part of good films.

Recipient of Special Mention Award at the 64th National Awards for her role in the 2016 film Neerja, Kapoor was asked if she thinks Pad Man would help her win another National Award and she replied, "I don't do films for awards, I just want to do good work and be part of good films."

Kapoor, along with Akshay Kumar, was present on the set of Grand Finale of Zee Marathi's reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa on Sunday, 8 January, to promote Pad Man.

During the media interaction, the actress also revealed that she will be shooting for Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film, after which she will start Abhishek Sharma's The Zoya Factor.

"I am going to shoot in February, March and April for Vinod (Chopra) Uncle's production. Then I will start preparing for The Zoya Factor," she said.

"Also there are three releases this year, first Pad Man this month, then Veere Di Wedding in May and then (Sanjay) Dutt biopic, so I will be busy with films. So, there is no time for other plans," said added.

Talking about Marathi cinema, Kapoor said she is glad that the industry is being recognised for its worth.

"Marathi films and songs have become very trendy right now. But people aren't aware of the years of hard work and quality work that happened earlier. But I am so glad that it has become so popular now that even we have to come and promote our films on the Marathi platform," she said.

Directed by R Balki, Pad Man is scheduled to be released on 25 January.
