Padman: A Muruganantham is happy that Akshay Kumar is portraying his story

Akshay Kumar will next be seen in R Balki’s ‘Padman’ which is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham who invented machines to make low cost sanitary napkins. The posters of the film have been unveiled, and today A Muruganantham took to Twitter to share a picture from the sets in which he is seen with the clapboard before a shot.

Along with the picture, he wrote, “@akshaykumar ji is the first super star in the world to talk about menstrual hygiene and taboos surround it. I’m happy that he is portraying my story as #Padman @mrsfunnybones @sonamakapoor @PadManTheFilm.”

Akshay quote retweeted Muruganantham, and wrote, “I’m more than glad to portray the reel #Padman and bring your amazingly inspiring story to life. Hope we manage to spark a change and start a conversation. Period.”

We are sure Akshay will do justice to the character of Arunachalam Muruganantham.

While the posters are out, we are now keen to watch the trailer of the film. The movie which is produced by Twinkle Khanna under her banner Mrs Funnybones Movies is slated to hit the screens on January 26, 2018. It also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in pivotal roles. While the former will be seen as Akshay’s wife, the latter plays the role of his English teacher.

‘Padman’ will be clashing with Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Aiyaary’ which stars Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role. The movie also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Pooja Chopra and Rakul Preet Singh. Well, Akshay and Neeraj share a great rapport with each other, so let’s see if this clash will take place or will be averted.

Earlier, ‘Padman’ was going to clash with Akshay’s another movie ‘2.0’, but recently we came to know that ‘2.0’ has been postponed and now, the Rajinikanth-Akshay-starrer will be releasing in April next year. We are sure that if ‘2.0’ was releasing on January 26, 2018, Akki would have never opted to have his other movie release on the same day.
