She has however, openly spoken up to support married actresses, demanding that Bollywood give them a fair chance. In an interview with IANS, Sonam said it is high time people change their attitude towards married actresses.
Speaking about ehy women are questioned about marriage she said, "I will start talking about it when the media will start asking the same questions to all the male actors in our industry -- about how they will take up their career after marriage, when will they make a comeback after the birth of their baby... This whole attitude towards married actress should be changed," Sonam told IANS.
Citing references from the past, she said, "Whether it is Nutan, Nargis, Waheeda Rehman, Sharmila Tagore, Dimple Kapadia, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol, Kareena Kapoor Khan, they are all loved by our audience even after their marriage. So the mind-set has been encouraged by a few filmmakers and media people. But hey, there are progressive and non-progressive minds in every business. So as in our industry. We should keep working... the change will come."
Sonam's next big screen outing is 'Pad Man' where she is acting alongside Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte. Pad Man releases with Padmaavat on the Republic Day weekend.
