Akshay Kumar’s 4th and final release of 2017 is gearing up to be one of the most keenly-awaited films of the year. The film, which is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham who invented the first low-cost sanitary napkins in India, will be directed by acclaimed director R. Balki.

Co-produced by Twinkle Khanna, ‘Padman’ will feature Sonam Kapoor and the talented Radhika Apte.

On signing the film, Sonam tweeted “Thrilled to be a part of this prestigious project”

‘Padman’ will be Akshay’s fourth release of 2017 – after Jolly LLB 2, Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Robot 2.0. The film will release in theatres in December.

Thrilled to be a part of this prestigious project. #rbalki @akshaykumar @missfunnybones @radhikaofficial #padman

  • @ death ranger Tepk will definetly will do 120 plus business because Akki comes with social film it will also benefit of tax free in some states . And film is about Political satires comedy film & P M Modi Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan . U see the result of film after release . Its niche film but it will do good business .

  • @Tiger,U know he was kidding!If u don’t then plz change ur way to judge ppl & their comments!Whatever u read is not necessary to be relevant to what he wrote!Dekho>Padho>Samjho uske baad kripya karke Vaartalap kare!!!

  • @Jabra Fan,Flops aur Disasters kaun de raha hai sabke sab dekh rahe hain? & Btw,Jab humare or tumhare fanbase me dosti hogayi hain toh plz don’t start all these again!KABAAB MEIN’HADDI’MAT BAN
    And plz don’t take the first sentence personal bcz i luv SRK & u should luv Akki too!Hatred mein kya rakha hain?

  • @Birugaali,No buddy!She is a good actress bcz if she hadn’t been how we’d like the movie which is totally based on her character ‘A Biography’.Similarly SSR in Dhoni,FA in BMB etc were fantastic!Even though i have had never liked her but bcz of ur pessimistic comment i replied u.

  • what a crap this “padman” is ! i am feeling very sad for my undisputed khiladi . no need to do such a worst project at any time. i am a fan of his action and
    comedy films like mohra, khiladi series,hera pheri series,baby ,sp26,airlift etc.
    Akshay sir se request hain ki action films karo toh rowdy rathore toh ,khiladiyon ka khiladi,main khiladi tu anari jaisi comedy ho toh welcome,SIk,hera phei jaissi. avoid cheap comedies like thankyou,houseful series.
    it’s a special pleasure to watch you in neeraj pandey a classy director’s project always.
    waitiny eagrly for masterpiece #CRACK#

  • @kaabil,OK!But what r ur thoughts on kaabil bcz from what im hearing & seeing ur Jadoo boy’s Kaabil has zero buzz!i literally mean’0′!Against the mighty Raess ur Jadoo Boy’s Kaabil is looking like a feeble competitor!#Padman would easily do 80 cr in worst case but will HR cross 50 cr in this clash is the pending question!Hoga yaa nahi?!”Are Bhai khollo khollo”
    ?!He’s dancing carrer is gonna “DOOM” finally.?

  • @Rajesh Kulkarni,I agree with u but practically i can’t say anything abt TEPK as of now!Bad Title plus niche genre plus only one week free run (i.e Raabta) will have their consequent effect but as i told nothing can be speculated abt it as of now i.e we should better wait for the trailer & promos to bring up any conclusion in its business perspective & yes I will be very happy if it gets tax free status.
    Anyways good point buddy!

  • @rajesh kulkarani

    That comment was for #sunny akkiholic not for you. BTW, even an Akkian #death ranger asked the same thing to Sunny.

  • @Akki fan

    I didn’t say anything against Akki or Padman. Still you got offended & started blabbering on some past clashes. Anyway, Bakwas kar hi diya toh reply bhi lelo…..In past….

    1. Akki lost 3 clashes to Saif Ali Khan.

    2. Akki lost 3 clashes to Sunil Shetty.

    3. Akki lost 3 clashes to Nana Patekar.

    4. Akki lost 4 clashes to Ajay Devgan.

    5. Akki lost 5 clashes to Gobinda.

    6. Ye Sab toh thik hai…Akki even lost 2 clashes to Rahul Roy.

    Therefore, if today a Saif/Sunil/Nana/Gobinda/Rahul Roy movie clashes with a Akki movie then Akki will lose it??????

  • Here lots of motherfucker srk fans says that srk is bigger than Akki, what happen when srk movie Fan earns only 80 crores & Akki 3 movies earn 100 all, Ur srk is mouse in front of Akki, Srk is a overactor.

    who the hell do you think you are. Yes, SIB and Entertainment are definitely worth a watch. They probably didn’t work at the B.O because of the release timing and maybe over exposure of Akki. Quit sounding like one of these idiot bollywood critics. Have you even watch these movies to comment on them. They were huge hits on tv. People didn’t watch them in theatre but everybody watched it on TV and enjoyed it very much

  • Akki will do 4 movies in 2017. Bhai will break his record with only two movies. Formula is

    1 Salman = 2 Akshay ?

  • Sonam got more talent than apte. In my opinion

    How can be so biased in the article to mention just Sonam and TALENTED apte!!!
    This is opnion .. not a fact or her offical name to add this word in main article.
    And I see it as downgrading the other actress in the article

  • @tiger the whatever
    Salman lost against Rakhi Sawant(LMAO)
    Salman lost against priyanka chopra
    Salman lost against ranbir kapoor
    Salman lost 3 clashes to Ajay devgan
    Salman lost 6 clashes to SRK (LMFAO)
    Salman lost 4 clashes to Akshay (LOL)
    And many more…!!!
    Atleast any of them didn’t lost against Rakhi Sawant LMAO

  • @amir fan bro you are right SIB is semi hit and entertainment was avg entertainment didn’t work because it has only one open week and next week singham returns release which was sequel of super hit movie singham

  • @jokerpol 2.0

    If you are really ek baap ka beta then name those 10 clashes Bhai lost to your gobar & gangu teli and one lost to PC. If you aren’t then it’s fine…??

  • @Tiger,Mere Bhai!Simple si Baat Hai :- Akki has won many clashes & lost too but his counterpart Salman has lost all of them of which 4 times to Akki!”SALMAN HASN’T WON A SINGLE CLASH”
    #Case closed!Accept the truth!
    I Don’t have the exact website to show it to u but u can check it anywhere for results!
    AUR MERE BHAI!I m very resolute to my words of not trolling Bhai since i hav promised ur mate #Salman Fan here on Indicine but u always urge me to do so!I M SORRY if u got hurt! Probably my last time to do so!
