Sonam Kapoor and Akshay Kumar, who are currently shooting for R Balki’s Padman in Maheshwar town of Madhya Pradesh, were pleasantly surprised when some local people brought cake on the sets to celebrate Akshay and Sonam’s National Awards, couple of days ago. While Sonam received a special mention for her performance in Neerja, Akshay got the best actor for Rustom and Airlift. The locals brought some gifts and two cakes for the stars to cut during the break. The actors were extremely touched by the gesture. Sonam plays a journalist in the film and it’s her second film with Akshay after Thank You.
Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor threw a wrap-up party for the cast and crew of Mubarakan in London last week, the night before they left for India. We got to know that Anil had thoroughly enjoyed himself while shooting for the film and it was his gesture of love for the youngsters who are a part of the film. His wife Sunita took care of the food and decorations, personally. Incidentally, after the completion of Neerja, Sonam had also treated the entire crew to ice creams as she had a great time shooting for it.
