The much-awaited social-drama starring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in lead roles, “Pad Man” is hitting the theatres today. From the moment the trailer hit the internet, it became one of the most anticipated movie of the year.
The movie Akshay Kumar’s PadMan is based on a real-life story of a social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India. Looking at the traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India, he has invented the low-cost sanitary pad-making machine and also invented a special grassroots mechanism for generating awareness.
Speaking of box office collection of Pad Man, the Bollywood industry has already given a thumbs-up which refers to a better luck ahead. The audience has also given their support by joining the "#PadmanChallenge”. As per Akshay, “The box office collection of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (Rs 134.22 crore) stands proof to the fact that if the content is carried out with a smart and subtle narrative, the masses are not only able to connect with it but they also give out positive reviews. And as far as PadMan is concerned, its trailer has appealed to the audience and they are looking forward to watching the movie.”
Karan Johar also believes in director R Balki for dealing with social topics like Akshay Kumar’s PadMan. He also added that the film is eyeing a collection of Rs.13-14 crore as the opening daycollection of PadMan which then can reach up to Rs.50 crore in the opening weekend.
Speaking about thetopic which is considered to be a ‘taboo’ in most parts of the country the movie does have a relevant content that’s attracting people and also spreading awareness in the Indian society. Going through the TEPK hit, the expectations from Pad Man are also getting huge. And depending on the entertainment part of the film, the collection in box office can be decided.
