The upcoming Bollywood movie PadMan is based on Twinkle Khanna’s book, The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad, which is inspired from the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist. And this man revolutionized the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine.
In the movie PadMan, Akshay Kumar is all set to don the garb of a ‘superhero’ for the aam aadmi of India.
The makers of the movie already released two posters and several looks from the film, and the 50-year-old Bollywood action star has now treated the fans with a motion poster.
In the video clip, shared on his Twitter account, we can hear co-star Sonam Kapoor teaching Akshay the spelling of ‘PadMan’.
The ‘Rustom’ star captioned the video as, “P-A-D + M-A-N = PAD MAN. It’s that simple 🙂 Coming to you, this Republic Day, 26.01.18@PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki #PadMan.”
