Akshay Kumar in recent times has been teasing his fans with new posters of his upcoming film Padman. The actor has revealed another poster of the upcoming film. Unlike the previous posters, the new poster also features Radhika Apte, who will be seen playing the role of Akshay Kumar’s wife.
Akshay and Radhika can be seen happily posing with a sanitary pad. Radhika can be seen donning a village look. The poster has been captioned, “My wife also asking when trailer coming? #PadMan, this Republic Day, 26.01.18”
The upcoming film is a biopic on the National hero Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented low-cost sanitary napkins and also helped to spread the awareness of menstrual hygiene among the rural women. Akshay in a recent interview was asked about starring in a film about menstrual hygiene to which he said, “If you change nothing, nothing will change. It’s not about being bold, but about breaking taboos that hold us back. I have lived with women all my life, yet I have learnt more about the topic while making this film than ever before. I do not mind who I offend or whose stomach I turn by being bold, this is not the Stone Age; menstruating is natural.”
The film Padman is due to be released in theatres on January 26, 2018.
