Pad Man: Ranveer Singh promotes Akshay Kumar's film on menstruation in style

PadMan Box Office Collection

This time, Akshay Kumar boldly goes where no mainstream star in Bollywood has gone before.

PAD MAN is directed Directed by R. Balki. However his emotions and variations are similar to those to Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet Ek Prem Katha.

Check: Happy Chocolate Day 2018. "Even Hollywood does not have a single film on sanitary napkins or menstrual hygiene".

The compelling biographical portrait of Arunachalam Muruganantham is a pure visual delight. The movie starts with giving honour to Amitabh Bachchan. But I would still recommend the movie for its frank discussion on what is regarded as a taboo subject in many parts of our country, told in a very conventional (too conventional, I must say) manner.

Petrified of Gayatri falling victim to unhygienic menstrual practices, Lakshmi decides to challenge the age-old beliefs pertaining to periods and tries to make low-priced sanitary napkins for his wife. And he thinks that this could generate infections. Still, she said, she could not get out of her awkwardness until she made a decision to just shed inhibitions and loudly called out for a packet of sanitary pads at a pharmacy shop in public.

The director, R. Balki smartly showed the big issue of the society using wonderful humour without policy violation of the industry.

Fo those who don't know, feud between Akshay Kumar and Mallika Dua started when she claimed that Akshay had passed a sexiest comment during the Great Indian Challenge show. It opens with an awestruck Sonam Kapoor trying to come to terms with the fact that how can a man be so obsessed with "chumming, ' as menstruation is commonly called".

His speech at the United Nations stage in broken English is one of our favourite scenes and it is easy to fall in love with this passionate man's simplicity. He is joined by critically acclaimed actresses Sonam Kapoor (Neerja) and Radhika Apte (Kabali). It is certainly one of the best in his career so far. While the pre-interval portion focuses on the countryside, the post-interval bit transports the viewers to New Delhi and Indore for the most part.

Check out what Akshay Kumar told us in this incredible interview as he gives us insight into the character, the making of the film and what this movie and story means to him and to the world.

Film buff Ameet Mohanty said the movie is based on the character of Akshay Kumar who dominates the whole scenario and overshadows other characters Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor. He is the one who introduces a simple mechanism machine which could produce cheap and good quality sanitary pads. When Akshay Kumar made a decision to collaborate with KriArj Entertainment, a new entrant in the business, not many fathomed that this was an association for the keeps.
