Padman Release Date announced

Akshay Kumar has announced the release date of his first release of 2018 – Padman – produced by his wife Twinkle Khanna. The film tells the story of social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkin machine.

The film releases in theatres during the beginning of the IPL period. It was a period that was considered to be risky due to the impact of the IPL, but has been outstanding for film business in the last couple of years.

The date falls exactly in between the time when ‘The Jungle Book’ (2015) and ‘Bahubali 2: The Conclusion’ (2016) released and did phenomenal business.

Directed by R Balki, Padman also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.

  • Was waiting for this announcement since long time. So now Akki has 4 films coming in 2018- 2.0, Padman, Gold and Mogul. Superb line-up! Par kya yaar why is it not coming in 2017, now we have to wait for 5 months for another Akshay movie(2.0)!


  • Totally multiplex film that too from a Superstar. Appreciable concept. Not to shy about a sensitive issue of women kind of film.
    More awareness in society will be gained through this film.
    Excellent Performance of TOILET-EPK will boost PADMan.
    I hope it works at ground level too…
    Akki Rocksssss..


  • 1st look is amazing . Movie is looking very real . Eagerly waiting . Best of kuck Akki sir.
    Once again u prove that u r the real king .


  • Looks interesting. I think the movie has potential to do tremendous business in Tamil Nadu. Firstly as Arunachalam Muruganantham hails from there. Second, the Tamil New Year falls on 14 April(Sat) next year. And the biggest boost could be Akshay returning after 2.0 next year. That movie is expected to be a rage in south and likely to elaborate Akshay’s fanbase in south, and Padman seems to be the perfect film to come after that.


    • Not just in south, robot 2.0 will dethrone sholay the ultimate hit, and k3g and dangal the biggest overseas hits.. So it will boost padman everywhere.. But yeah.. TN especially


  • The poster looks simple . This film is about women empowerment . The release date is good . It is releasing 2 weeks after Dutt and 2 weeks before Baaghi 2 and Manikarnika . Akshay will have 4 releases in 2018 – 2.0, Padman, Gold and Mogul . Crack has been postponed because of pending script so I don’t think it will release next year . Next year looks amazing for Akshay with 4 different kind of movies . 2.0 is the biggest film of Akshay’s career . Gold is a big film that is releasing on Independence Day weekend which is based on the life of Balbir Singh . Mogul is based on the life of Gulshan Kumar . Padman is based on Arunachalam Murganantham . So apart from 2.0 all the 3 movies are based on real life stories and real life characters . Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • Hats off to Akshay Kumar,always surprising audience with his hatke film choices… but he never gets his due,Padman & Toilet both r risky/daring movies,even an aamir wouldn’t have done these movies if given a chance but still ppl underestimate Akshay….AK sir aap great hoon,we all luv u
