Pad Man is a Hindi movie produced by Twinkle Khanna. The movie is all about Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who brought awareness about the menstrual hygiene among rural areas in India.
The movie casts Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor, Radhika Apte and Amitabh Bachan in supporting role. While the movie is being directed by R Balkrishanan.
The actor turned writer and producer has one of the top selling book, The Legend of Laxmi Prasad in which she has chronicled the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham as The Sanitary Man.
Pad Man is an interesting and very different storyline. Twinkle Khanna says that the movie has a social message which surely brings the attention of something that has long been shamed. The social entrepreneur Muruganantham invented low-cost sanitary napkins to bring awareness about the menstrual hygiene among the rural India. This movie is totally based on the life of Muruganantham who invented the lost cost sanitary napkins in rural areas and brought awareness about the unhygienic menstruation in slum areas.
Radhika Apte will play the role of Akshay Kumar’s wife and Sonam Kapoor has special appearance.
The debutante producer Twinkle Khanna says am happy to be part of the movie as it will surely open the cloaked minds of the people who have wrong intentions and superstitions about the mensuration. Speaking more about the movie she said, the only motive of the movie is to raise awareness about sanitary hygiene. Surely we want to give a social message but meanwhile the makers are trying their hard to entertain the audience.
Before the release of ‘Padman’, the Khiladi will be seen in ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ starring Bhumi Padnekar.
