Akshay Kumar is one of the exceptional actors who are changing the face of cinema industry. After delivering Toilet Ek Prem Katha, he is now back with PadMan. PadMan is the movie is on the menstrual hygiene. Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in lead roles with Akshay Kumar. The movie is produced by Twinkle Khanna’s Mrs. Funnybones Productions, the film has been a passion project of the couple since she wrote a newspaper column on women’s sanitary health and the stigma associated with it, two years ago.
Talking to Media, Akshay said: “I didn’t want to make a documentary… I wanted to make a commercial film so people can see it. It’s a film you can take your children to, even though it talks about sanitary pads. It’s a universal subject. Nobody has ever tried to touch this subject.”
Twinkle, who is debuting as a producer with the film, said in the report, “I was immediately gripped by the story of this man on two levels. One, because it was about menstruation; and two, because it was a story about somebody who persevered against everything, who lost his wife, who was ostracized from his village. He did not give up.”
Seems like the film promises to be the story of a social awakening in India.
