Pad Man: Akshay Kumar begins another journey

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has begun shooting for yet another film, ‘Pad Man’, which will be the first production of his wife Twinkle Khanna. The film will be directed by R. Balki.

“Embarking on a new journey, this time with the Mrs. First day of ‘Pad Man’, directed by R. Balki. Need your love and luck as always,” Akshay tweeted.

Twinkle said “And so it begins ‘Pad Man’”

“Pad Man” is said to be based on the true story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who took it upon himself to manufacturer cheap, affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village. It’s said he was disturbed when he discovered his wife collecting filthy rags and newspapers to use during her menstrual cycle, as sanitary napkins made by multinational corporations were expensive.

  • Unique concept…Word-of-Mouth dependent movie..Akshay shifting his works..Nowdays,he is doing different kind of films..
    Akshay is an inspiration how he manage 4 films in 1 year??That’s something we people should learn and manage time..

  • The one man who dares. Dares to challenge release dates and dares to go for uncharted territories. I hope our country doesn’t feel awkward watching this movie. Hope the movie turns out well and makes people grow. All the very best.

  • This story is kind of woman empowerment and pro feminism if done in the right way..but if done in wrong way, then it will actually alienate male viewers..let’s see where it ends up..Have faith in R.Balki

  • It will be hard hiting subject on social , the man made cheap sanitary part for women’s . If the film will emotionally connect women’s then it has chance to cross 100 crore . But I am not interested to watch such movie . But respect this superstar such handling subject . And once again common man role .
