Of making a film like PadMan, Akshay had earlier 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."

Ahead of PadMan's release, the real life 'Pad Man' A Muruganantham congratulated and thanked Twinkle Khanna and the team for making the film and wrote, "When I started, I never imagined that a movie will be made on my story. 20 years now, and I'm grateful for everything that has happened." He also thanked his wife and wrote, "I finally thank my wife without whom I think there wouldn't be this innovation and this moment."
 

Both Akshay and Twinkle also thanked Mr Muruganantham for the 'inspiration.'
