PadMan: These 5 WOMEN are the real FORCE behind the film
Arunachalam Muruganantham's wife Shanthi
Shanthi Muruganantham was the lady who was instrumental in Arunachalam Muruganantham's decision to create low-cost sanitary pad making machine. She used to collect filthy rags and newspapers to use during her menstrual cycle and that was the prime reason for her husband to come up with the novel idea of inventing sanitary pad making machine.
Twinkle Khanna, the lady who hasn't just co-produced the movie, but also penned a book on the same. Her book titled 'The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad' has a novella on the life of Muruganantham. So, taking inspiration from the man's life journey and the book, the movie 'PadMan' was conceptualised.
Filmmaker R Balki has helmed the socially relevant tale of 'PadMan' and his wife Gauri Shinde has turned the co-producer for this one. Gauri, the woman behind meaningful cinema like 'English Vinglish' and 'Dear Zindagi', has backed this project.
Actress Sonam Kapoor essays the character of an English teacher in the movie. She is the one who helps Akshay in polishing his English-speaking skills as his character isn't fluent in the language. And she is the driving force in helping Akshay give speech at various esteemed institutes.
Radhika Apte essays the character modelled on his wife Shanthi in the movie. Knowing her knack for experimenting with her roles, we are sure she is going to pull off this one too with utmost ease.
