The movie, directed by R Balki is based on real-life social activist by the name Arunachalam Muruganantham. He pioneered pads for the sake of menstrual hygiene for women. This story will revolve around this extraordinary personality. From the looks of the trailer, Akshay Kumar plays a gutsy, broad minded man who is mad about making pads for women! The movie promises us a fun rollciking ride as we understand how he came to revolutionise menstrual hygiene with low cost sanitary napkins. The film also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
Here’s what our reviewer, Tushar Joshi had to say about the film – Pad Man deserves a special mention simply because it got made. A subject that’s hushed up even in urban India got a mainstream treatment by a popular actor-director team. And that itself is a reason why a film like this deserves extra attention.
