Genre : comedy-drama

Akshay Kumar’s Padman ( for it would be wrong to say otherwise) marks a milestone in the superstar`s journey from Khiladi to Baby, to Padman. Directed by R.Balki, Pad Man is based on a book The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, by writer-producer Twinkle Khanna. The book is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who altered the idea of menstrual cleanliness in provincial India by making a minimal effort sanitary napkins machine. The movie revolves around the life of `Padman` who took upon himself the herculean task of coming up with a machine that gives women biodegradable sanitary napkins at a lower cost. Ostracized from his village and abandoned by family, the movie focuses on the hardships faced by this rather unconventional husband, in the pursuit of his goal. Also starring Radhika Apte, Sonam Kapoor and even Big B Amitabh Bachchan (in a special appearance), Pad Man has been raking mullahs ever since it hit the Box Office on 9 February 2018.
