Akshay Kumar’s ‘Pad Man’ to be filmed in a village

Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Pad Man’, which is based on the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, will be filmed in a village a few miles away from the city of Indore.

“‘Pad Man’. Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte to shoot in this village near Indore. A true story from Balki” tweeted P.C. Sreeram, the cinematographer of the film.

‘Pad Man’ also starring Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in the lead, is the real life story of Muruganantham, who found a way to make cheap, affordable sanitary napkins for women.

The film will be directed by acclaimed filmmaker R Balki.



  • yes napkins in padman are made so that akki can wipe his tears after the film would get disaster

  • This will be a big challenge for R Balki . I enjoyed watching CK and Paa but I was very disappointed with Shamitabh and Ki & Ka . This film may appeal to multiplex audiences as it is based on sanitary napkins . They should announce the release date as soon as possible . This is the 1st film of Twinkle Khanna as a producer . The chances of this film being a failure is pretty less as this looks like a film being made on a reasonable budget . This film will be definitely appreciated by girls and women .

  • Very risky project. If not executed properly might turn out to be a documentary. But kudos to Akki for such risk.

  • & Indicine team. Please, make a neutral article on Kjo-Kangana feud so that the likes of me can voice my opinions. Thanks

  • it seems risky,it can either be gud b.o success or a damp squib .but,hopefully balki can spring a big surprise with this one.

  • Akshay spends more than 25 years
    and still average actor
    look at Salman Aamir SRK
    even Varon Ranbir Ranvir where
    they standing

  • now
    village small city common man based films are rocking
    all thing is good in this film only title is not good or simple

  • First time I am not interested in akki film we have to accept his different film . But we are badly missing akki action films . Kathathi remake should be announce . Ek din issa aayega ki younger actors will go ahead him in collection . Sometimes 120 crore looks good but he need 150+ films . Akshay sir please change genre of films .

  • How can director & actor can make film on it Is this kind of stories can make film . Sun neke liye accha hai women’s sanitary napkin but film ke liye kuch inspiring nahi hai akki sir say bye bye to this film make Kathathi remake its interesting subject on social issues on farmer sucide the film has mass & class appeal . It won’t cross 80 cross its my challenge .

  • @Srk jabra fan…
    1st wipe your ‘king khan’ tears after disastar of raees & dilwale & then talk…
    Jolly llb 2 is 1st clean hit of 2017…

  • 60 crore film coming akki is a local star this film will be a sureshot flop now i am scared this film opening will be even lower than tiger shroffs film POST FAST

  • akki sir the most bollywood actor who takes big risks films like padman, toilet. can we imagine any other top star like him doing this type of films surely no I have good expectation from padman even in terms of box office so hope for the best

  • Proud moment us akkians he has been doing really good movies since 2012. Indicine actually akki isn’t part of padman he himself confirmed it.

  • Akshay kumar confirmed it about two months back that he isn’t part of padman its only produced by his wife home production and it stars south actor in a lead role along with sonam kapoor and radhika apte. Please get your facts right indicine.
