Akshay Kumar's PadMan to release in Russia - Deets inside

Interesting facts about Pad Man

As we all know, the film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who revolutionized the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-priced sanitary napkins machine.

Produced by Mrs Funnybones Movies, SPE FIlms India, Kriarj Entertainment, Cape of Good Films and Hope Productions, Pad Man is written and directed by ad-man turned film-man R Balki (Paa). Mr Muruganantham took the initiative to provide better menstrual hygiene conditions for the women of his family and those who could not afford sanitary pads. Lakshmi Prasad is also a Padma Shri awardee. The other day I was sitting in my vanity van and I heard two-three guys discuss the film.

Pad Man is the world's first feature film on menstrual hygiene. Padman primarily stars Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in vital roles. Akshay took to twitter to share the information as the screening happened in the presence of Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.

The social media wave has created a stir and is thought-provoking as well.

The video also gives a glimpse of Akshay Kumar's character Lakshmikanth at the United Nations who draws a comparison between pads used to protect the legs of cricketers and sanitary pads used by women, strongly making a point that there is a need for menstrual hygiene.

Were there any disagreements on the sets while working with Twinkle?

The original Padman Arunachalam Muruganantham is also reported to be there at the event, where he will supposedly raise the issue of GST and luxury tax levied on sanitary napkins, with the ministers.

"I never thought a film will be made on my life and my work". The film is slated to hit the screens on February 9.
