- For Sonam's picture, Akshay wrote: "The STRENGTH behind #PADMAN"
- "The REASON he became #PADMAN," Akshay wrote for Radhika
- Akshay's first poster was revealed in August
Radhika Apte has been cast as Padman's wife while Sonam's character appears to have helped him in his venture. Check out how Sonam and Radhika's looks from Padman:
Sonam also could not resist sharing her first look from the much talked about film. She added a thank you not for Akshay and the director: "Such a pleasure working with the indomitable Akshay Kumar. He was the perfect person to play the role of #Padman and has brought a sense of humour and love to the film. Of course none of these would have been possible without the humble visionary R Balki."
Earlier in August, the first look of Akshay Kumar as Padman pedalled his way to social media like this. The film was scheduled to release in April then but has now been rescheduled to hit screens on January 26. Padman will be co-produced by Twinkle Khanna's Mrs Funnybones Movies and KriArj Entertainment while Sony Pictures has also come on board for worldwide distribution of the movie.
The much anticipated Padman is taking fast steps towards its release date, which clashes with yet another Akshay Kumar movie - Rajinikanth's 2.0. Earlier in an interview with mid-day, the actor had said Padman will be moved from the Republic Day weekend if Rajinikanth decides to release 2.0 during that time.
