Akshay Kumar shared a new poster from his upcoming film Padman and we love it. In the new poster shared by Akshay, the 50-year-old actor is posing like a 'super hero,' which is also the tagline of his film, directed by R Balki. Padman is a biopic on entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham (played by Akshay), who became a popular figure for inventing low-cost sanitary making machines and hence, the name of the movie. In the poster, Akshay can be seen standing on a pile of cotton, which looks like a set-up for making sanitary pads. Sharing the poster on Twitter today, Akshay reminded his fans about the release date of the film, which is January 26, 2018. "Super hero hai yeh pagla, aa raha hai 26th January, 2018 ko: #Padman," Akshay captioned the poster.
