Watch: Akshay Kumar says no to nicotine and yes to sanitary pads in the new teaser of 'Padman' 1

In the latest promo, we see Akshay Kumar aka Padman give a hard-hitting message to a smoker named Nandu, who thinks menstruation is a disease for women when his wife goes to the clinic.

Akshay Kumar conveys a social message through him that instead of spending money to decrease your life-span by smoking nicotine, you can buy sanitary pads for your wife so that she can go through her menstruation process in a smooth and hygienic way.

Directed by R Balki, the film aims at starting a discussion on women mensuration hygiene in rural areas.

The film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has helped spread awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.

The film is Twinkle Khanna’s production venture in association with Gauri Shinde. ‘Padman’ also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte who play the female leads in the film.

Written and directed by R Balkiof ‘Ki and Ka’ fame, ‘Padman’ definitely looks promising.

The film is slated to release on January 26, 2018.
