Akshay Kumar is currently busy with R Balki’s ‘Padman’. The film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a man who invented machines to make low-cost sanitary napkins. The posters are out and we hope that Akshay will do justice to the titular character. A Muruganantham took to Twitter on Sunday to share a photograph from the sets. Khiladi Kumar quote tweeted to Muruganantham.
@akshaykumar ji is the first super star in the world to talk about menstrual hygiene and taboos surround it. I’m happy that he is portraying my story as #Padman @mrsfunnybones @sonamakapoor @PadManTheFilm pic.twitter.com/vrNYtEeEIc— A Muruganantham (@murugaofficial) December 3, 2017
Though the posters look exciting, everyone is eagerly waiting for the trailer of Padman.
The movie will be clashing with Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Aiyaary’ which stars Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Pooja Chopra and Rakul Preet Singh on Republic Day, 2018. We all know that Akshay and Neeraj share a great rapport with each other as we have seen them working together in movies like Special 26, Baby, Rustom, Naam Shabana. However, it remains to be seen whether this clash will be averted or not.
Earlier, ‘Padman’ was going to clash with Akshay Kumar’s another release ‘2.0’. However, ‘2.0’ has been postponed as of now and the Rajinikanth - Akshay starrer will be releasing in April next year. It’s obvious that Akki would not have released his other movie on the same day.
