Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor have been lauded by the National Awards for their work in Rustom and Neerja respectively. Both the actors, who are currently in Indore, shooting for Padman were in for a shock when the news of them being acknowledged by the National awards committee was out. Akshay has won a National Award for Best Actor category for his performance in Rustom while Sonam was recognised by the committee for her performance in Neerja. Ever since the news has been broken, people on social media have started tweeting and talking about it. Many have voiced that it's unfair and that the 'government' is sold. Fans, on the other hand, have praised and wished the actors for their win. It is a little shocking, even for us. Maybe that's why we're able to relate with the pic Sonam put up from the sets of Padman!
In case you folks didn't know, Sonam has reached the sets of Padman in Indore to start shooting her sequence for the film. Directed by R Balki, the film is being shot at Maheshwar in Indore. Right after the National awards winners list went viral, the actors took to social media to express their gratitude. Kumar shot a video, thanking the committee and the audience for liking his performance in the film. Miss Kapoor though, chose a quirky way to show how happy and shocked she was with the news. She posted a surprised pic of herself and her co-star and captioned it, "Who would've thought!! Shocked and grateful!! All the way from maheshvar!!! #nationalawards #neerja #rustom @akshaykumar" Check out the post below.
