Here's what Taran Adarsh tweeted:
#PadMan maintains its pace on Mon... Fri 10.26 cr, Sat 13.68 cr, Sun 16.11 cr, Mon 5.87 cr. Total: 45.92 cr. India biz... Overseas opening weekend: 2.31 million [ 14.84 cr].— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 13, 2018
Compared to film's performance over the weekend (collection-wise), the business on Monday decreased by almost 55-58%. According to Box Office India, Akshay's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha had a stronger trend than PadMan.
PadMan chronicles the life of Tamil Nadu-based social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who created a low-cost sanitary pad making machine to manufacture affordable sanitary napkins for the women of his village.
Speaking of the film's concept, Akshay earlier told IANS that he 'did not have enough money' to produce films based on socially relevant topics. "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 Arunachalam Muruganantham and then we met R Balki. So we thought about making this movie. Even Hollywood does not have a single film on sanitary pads or menstrual hygiene. People always make documentaries but they don't want to make commercial films because they want to shy away from the issue. We have tried to do that."
The film, headlined by Akshay Kumar, also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor. PadMan is produced by Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna.
