Safe to say several more posts about the PadMan challenge will pave way for the film's release next week.

PadMan, as mentioned above, chronicles the struggles of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a low cost sanitary pad making machine. 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.

PadMan, directed by R Balki, is an adaptation of Twinkle's short story, titled Sanitary Man From A Sacred Land, which was published in her second bestseller The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad.

PadMan also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor and the film is expected to hit the screens on January 9.
