Recently, in a new behind-the-scenes video released by the makers of PadMan, Twinkle highlighted how crucially the movie addresses issues related to menstrual hygiene and periods. "When I first came across his story, I thought it was an incredible story - 1) It was a man talking about something which even women shy away from. 2) It was also about he who made a transformation from an uneducated man into an innovator," said Twinkle.
PadMan was earlier slated to release on January 25 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat but today Akshay revealed that the film will now hit the screens on February 9.
