The next two days will be 'crucial' for PadMan as Sidharth Malhotra's Aiyaary releases this Friday, Box Office India reported.
PadMan is based on entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented low-cost sanitary pad making machine and created menstrual hygiene in his village. Akshay plays him in the film.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen gave PadMan 4 stars out of 5. "PadMan is a film about those who need to take things apart in order to build something better. Muruganantham did this with pads as well as with stigma. The PadMan title track revels in the fact that he doesn't have to break bones in slow-motion or leap tall buildings in order to be a superhero," he wrote.
PadMan is produced by Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar's wife.
