- PadMan is a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham
Directed by R Balki, PadMan is actually a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham, who became a household name after inventing low-cost sanitary napkin making machines - which also explains the name of the movie. The trailer of PadMan sort of portrays Mr Muruganantham's character as a desi superhero, whose only concern is to come up with a convenient solution to tackle menstrual health for women after he learnt his wife used newspaper and rags during her menstrual cycle.
The promotional video also features hilarious snippets from the sets of the movie with primarily Akshay Kumar and his goofy antics on the forefront. Akshay can be seen frying puris, doing stunts on a swing and popping a bottle of champagne on sets in the BTS video. PadMan and the video also star Sonam Kapoor as a journalist while Radhika Apte plays PadMan's wife.
PadMan arrives the same day as Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much awaited Padmavat, which hits screens on January 25. Padmavat stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
