Akshay Kumar unveils new poster of 'Padman'
Bollywood's action king, Akshay Kumar has always managed to associate himself with films concerning social problems. The next in line is 'Padman'. Akshay today unveiled a new poster of his upcoming film 'Padman' which is being produced by his wife, Twinkle Khanna. In the picture posted by him, the 50-year-old actor is posing holding a sanitary napkin. Here's a sneak peak.
Here's what Akshay tweeted
About the film
'Padman' is based on the story of Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making-machine. He has innovated grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. He was awarded Padma Shri by the Government of India; he also featured on Time Magazine's list of '100 most influential people'.
'Padman' would release on Republic Day
Akshay Kumar has announced that he would release both his film 'Padman' and '2.0' in the same Republic Day week. Akshay decided to pitch himself against himself on Republic Day because '2.0' and Padman are different from each other in terms of content and even audience. Secondly, Akshay doesn't really see '2.0' as his film- it is Rajinikanth's film.
