Actress turned writer Twinkle Khanna aka Mrs. Funny Bones is ready for her first production- PADMAN. Padman is based on real life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham. He found a way to make cheap,affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village. That’s a different “Make in India” story altogether.
When it comes to sensible films Akshay Kumar doesn’t have in his credit as much as Amir Khan does. But his wife Twinkle Khanna has the right script for him and has cast him as the lead role in the film against Radhika Apte who is going to play Akshay’s wife in the film. It’s time for Akshay Kumar to prove his mettle. In a recent event, Twinkle said “It wasn’t easy for her to convince Muruganantham”. But thanks to her, the world will know the success story of this extraordinary man.
Talking more about the film Twinkle said “The shoot is going really well. Mr Muruganantham was also there. It’s a wonderful project. It will bring awareness about something which has been so far cloaked and shamed, and I am very happy to be a part of the film”
The official poster of the film also reads “based on an extraordinary true story” and shows a ‘Pad’ which tells that the movie is based on real life story and talks about the things which has traditionally been considered as ‘cursed’ in India.
