Perhaps one of the much talked about upcoming movies of the year is Akshay Kumar’s Padman. And nowwhen the first poster of the film has been unveiled, the excitement has reached a new level. The producer of the movie, Twinkle Khanna, shared the first poster, featuring Akshay Kumar, throwing his hands up in air, riding a cycle. With the poster, the makers have revealed the release date aswell. The film is scheduled to release on April 13th, 2018.
Directed by R. Balki and produced by Twinkle Khanna, Padman is based on the life ArunachalamMuruganantham, also known as India’s “Menstruation Man”, who invented low-cost sanitary napkins for rural and underprivileged women. He was even awarded Padma Shri by the Government of India for his society-benefiting endeavours. Padman will be Twinkle Khanna’s debut production. R. Balki’s last directorial project, Ki & Ka was a failure at box office. With Padman he gears up to impress the audience once again. Padman also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in important roles. After Thank You in 2011, this is the second time Sonam Kapoor has collaborated with Akshay Kumar in a movie.
