PadMan, which talks about menstrual hygiene also stars actresses Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the lead role.
PadMan is a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inventor of low-cost sanitary pad making machines. Of PadMan and menstruation Akshay Kumar said, "When you celebrate it, the girl who is already going through a physical and hormonal transition, will feel confident and secure. But we excluded our women from the normalcy of life during those five days. So from the first experience, women feel that period is something they should hide. So you know where we should start from."
A few songs from the film like Hu Ba Hu and Aaj Se Teri have been revealed by the makers and the audience are already loving them.
PadMan's trailer was released by the makers recently and in no time it went viral. Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna spoke about the film's trailer. Twinkle said that she is hopeful that something which has been "hidden in the darkness" for so long will finally be in the spotlight because of her film.
