Akshay Kumar has four films lined up for 2017. While Jolly LLB 2, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and 2.0 are already creating buzz in film community, it’s the fourth film Padman that has also started grabbing eyeballs. Padman is said to be conceptualized by Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna who is also producing this film.
Padman is based on a real story of a man named Arunachalam Muruganantham who devised a low cost machine to make affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village. Padman will be directed by R. Balki, who last year helmed Ki & Ka.
Balki is known to make films on social issues and with Akshay Kumar in a lead, Padman will definitely create a grand buzz. The film will release in December, 2017.
