New Delhi: Actress Sonam Kapoor, who plays a pivotal role in Akshay Kumar's forthcoming film PadMan, says that screen timing 'does not matter to her, apart from the story and her character,' reports news agency IANS. Sonam Kapoor is the star of films such as Raanjhanaa, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Neerja, for which she received a Special Mention at the 64th National Film Awards. "It is the combination of the story and my character; screen timing does not matter to me, honestly. One does not have to be in every single frame of the film to create an impact of the character. If my part is well-crafted, even with three scenes, my character can make a major impact on the story. And that's what matters," she told IANS.
