Actor Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna held a special screening of PadMan on Tuesday night at Super Sunny Sound in Mumbai. This screening was exclusively for close friends and family.

The event was attended by Twinkle Khanna’s mother Dimple Kapadia. Akshay and Twinkle’s son Aarav Bhatia also attended the screening. The director of the film, R. Balki was also a part of the screening.

PadMan is a biopic based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham who invented low-cost sanitary making machines. He was determined to find a low cost way to use sanitary napkins after he discovered that his wife used newspapers and rugs during her periods.

PadMan stars Akshay Kumar in the titular role and also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in supporting roles.

The release of the movie, which was scheduled for January 25th, has been shifted to February 9 after Sanjay Leela Bansali visited Akshay Kumar requesting him to postpone the release. Now PadMan will release along with Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary on February 9.

Meanwhile, the cast and crew of PadMan have been doing the circuits to promote their upcoming movie.

Twinkle Khanna, a producer of PadMan, spoke about the movie at Oxford Union. Her speech focused on period taboos and period poverty. In the speech she said:

“PadMan is not just a film, it’s a movement. I hope now women will not be held back or embarrassed by their biology.”

 
As a part of spreading awareness about menstrual hygiene, Sonam Kapoor and R. Balki distributed free sanitary pads among school girls in Mumbai.
