PadMan also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in pivotal roles. It goes on to see Akshay's character working hard on his idea of creating a sanitary pad and trying it out himself and even checking for leaks.
Akshay Kumar has done a great job as in the movie, although based on a serious issue has its comic timing bang on. I have lived with women all my life, yet I have learnt more about the topic while making this film than ever before.
In PadMan, Akshay plays the titular 'superhero, ' who strives to provide a hygienic life to the women of his family. Based on the true story of Arunachalam Muruganantham -the man who invented low-priced sanitary napkins for women in rural areas, this film is directed by R. Balki.
Kumar's romantic movements with on-screen wife Radhika Apte will force a dreamy sigh out of the viewers which somehow faded the impact of Sonam's entry when the others turn their back at the revolutionist for his freaky idea of making suitable feminine hygiene products. Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan will make a special appearance in the film. The way Akshay have shown the whole concept of menstrual hygiene is definitely on-point.
Bollywood celebrities applauded the trailer and there is a lot of positive hype around which will hit the screens on January 26, 2018.
I hope the makers of this film - it is directed by R Balki and produced by Twinkle Khanna - don't squander this wonderful opportunity to shine a light on the uncomfortable truths and stories that lurk behind India's apathy towards menstrual hygiene.
