Padman is one of the most awaited movie of 2018, and there are many reasons why! 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.
Asked about the clash, Akshay said, “Both the films are absolutely different. Neeraj is a dear friend of mine. There is nothing like clash. The word clash is media created. My film might get screened in 2,800 screens or so. Their would be in 1,600-1,800 or more.
“There are 4,000-5,000 screens so how come there is a clash. That film is different and so is ours. So there is no clash as such.”
On working with Twinkle Khanna as a producer, the Rustom actor replied, “I felt even more responsible than usual to deliver my best because she was behind this project. This is her baby, right from the concept. This is something we are doing together for the first time. I am happy that it is not a mundane film. The film addresses a topic that can truly impact a number of lives.”
