In PadMan, Akshay plays the titular 'superhero,' who strives to provide a hygienic life to the women of his family. Akshay's character in the film is called Lakshmikant Chauhan, who devices ways to make low cost sanitary pads for his wife Gayatri (Radhika Apte). His attempts are in vain till he meets Rhea Kapoor (played by Sonam Kapoor), who helps him with the process. But his struggles are not easy because his first opponents are the women of his family, including Gayatri.
Without much ado, watch the trailer of PadMan:
Arunachalam Muruganantham's story was adapted by Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna in one of the short stories from her book The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad. PadMan, which Twinkle is producing through Mrs FunnyBones Movies, is the screen adaptation of The Sanitary Man of Sacred Land.
