Akshay Kumar and wife Twinkle Khanna attended a special screening of their new film PadMan
with son Aarav and Twinkle's mother Dimple Kapadia on Tuesday night in Mumbai. Akshay-Twinkle were all smiles and were photographed arriving at the screening. Aarav accompanied mom Twinkle in the back seat while Dimple Kapadia smiled for the paparazzi in a separate car. Akshay and his family were casually dressed for the screening. Twinkle wore a white kurta
with a blue and grey scarf while Akshay preferred a white and black tee. Directed by R Balki and produced by Twinkle Khanna, PadMan
is actually a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham (played by Akshay in the film), who became a household name after inventing low-cost sanitary napkin making machines - which also explains the name of the movie.
