PadMan: Director R Balki to show his film to Malala Yousafzai
Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte-starrer ‘PadMan’ is having a decent run at the box office. But most importantly, the film has given to rise much needed discussions on menstruation and women’s menstrual hygiene, on virtual platforms and in real life circles.

And dare we say, that the movement crossed boundaries and reached other side of the border! Pakistani activist and world’s youngest Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai lent her support to the cause.
Malala had to face enough backlash for posing with a pad; but nevertheless, stuck to the cause and even desired to watch the film. Director R Balki, hence, wishes to show it to her as soon as possible.
“What can I say about Malala coming forward to support our film? We are blessed and honoured. It is voices like her which would carry our message in ‘PadMan’ forward. Menstruation must not be swept under the carpet any more. And we need powerful voices like Malala’s to carry the message forward.”
“We are definitely showing it to her at the earliest, as soon as the logistics are worked out,” he told IANS.
Here’s hoping Malala can convert the conversations into a revolution in her own country too!
