Akshay plays the character of a social entrepreneur who believes in spreading awareness about menstrual hygiene. The trailer of Padman was released on Twitter by Akshay Kumar and it soon gathered a lot of appreciation by the Twitterati.
PadMan trailer: Akshay Kumar feels the film is for those who are insane enough to change the world. Amitabh Bachchan, who is the narrator in the trailer, also has a cameo in the film. Kumar who plays the role of Arunachalam Muruganantham, has the idea of making sanitary napkins for women and even tries himself one in a pink underwear.
Embarrassed by his noble pursuits, his wife leaves him and the people of his village shun him. It is Sonam Kapoor who comes as an angel in disguise and helps him in his journey to the finish. And I don't say this as a fan but as a big movie buff who knows her favourites for who they are- talented and versatile. It is billed as the most progressive family entertainer yet, starring worldwide megastar Akshay Kumar (Toilet: Ek Prem Katha) who assumes the titular role of Arunachalam Muruganantham to once again showcase his commitment to social entertainers.
Produced by Aruna Bhatia, Mrs Funnybones Movies, Sony Pictures Entertainment, India, Kriarj Entertainment, Cape of Good Films and Hope Productions, PadMan is written and directed by ad-man turned film-man R Balki (Paa). I want to be a part of world cinema, not be restricted to Indian cinema. Complimented by handsome background score, the video is sure to bring audiences to the theatres. "Nobody has ever tried to touch this subject".
With PadMan slated for a Republic Day release, it's high time the movie's trailer was released.
