As the month of February kicks in, PadMan stars gear up for the much-awaited release of their film on February 9.
Sonam Kapoor, who plays an important role in the film shared a happy picture of herself on Instagram where she can be seen playing the tabla.
She captioned the image: "Every film gives me an opportunity to learn something new #Padman @padmanthefilm @akshaykumar @radhikaofficial"
Sonam Kapoor plays the role of a tabla player and social activist who motivates Akshay Kumar (PadMan in the film) to continue on his journey of social awareness and in bringing a social change in the rural village where the story originates from.
Sonam trained to play tabla under the guidance of 28-year-old tabla player and percussionist Mukta Madan Raste.
Speaking to a leading daily, Mukta confirmed the news and said, "As Sonam plays a tabla player in Padman, she is making time to learn the nuances of playing the instrument. Even while travelling, she takes a music book along and finds time to practice on her own. Mukta also has a small role in the film and she plays a sarangi player and trains Sonam, too."
PadMan stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role along with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
