Akshay Kumar has co-starred with Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan in many films while he featured in a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan's Om Shanti Om.
PadMan is directed by R Balki and based on Mr Muruganantham's life, who invented low-cost sanitary pad making machines and created menstrual hygiene in his village. The film also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
Of making a film like PadMan, Akshay told news agency PTI, "I always wanted to work and make such films but I was not a producer during that time. I didn't have enough money but now I can. My wife told me about Muruganantham and then we met R Balki. So we thought about making this movie. Even Hollywood has not a film on sanitary pads or menstrual hygiene. People always make documentaries but they don't want to make commercial films. We have tried to do that."
PadMan opens this Friday.
