- Akshay's PadMan will release along with Deepika's Padmaavat
- 'PadMan's achievement is when men talk about issue of menstruation'
- PadMan, directed by R Balki release on January 25
"It is not necessary for me to think about how much business it is going to do but every morning, when I monitor my social media, I see people are talking openly about sanitary pads and menstruation and that is I feel my film's biggest victory," he added.
PadMan is based on the life of entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a low-cost sanitary pad making machine. Mr Muruganantham was also the subject of Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna's short story The Sanitary Man From A Sacred Land, published in her second book the Legend of Lakshmi Prasad. Twinkle is also producing PadMan through Mrs FunnyBones Movies.
After PadMan, Akshay will be seen in 2.0, co-starring Rajinikanth and later in Reema Kagti's Gold and Karan Johar's Kesari.
