Few days back it was reported that Neerja actress Sonam Kapoor came on board for Akshay Kumar's much anticipated film Padman.
News now has it the talented actress Radhika Apte of Parched fame has been signed in for a key role in the movie.
Cheeni Kum director R Balki is on board as helmer of the project which is believed to be based on real-life events of Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India, and the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine. Having made incredible efforts to generate awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India, he is famously known as the India’s ‘Menstruation Man’.
The movie is Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna’s maiden production under her new banner Mrs Funnybones Movies.
This will be Akshay's third movie that will be inspired by a true story after Airlift and Rustom, both of which went on to become huge hits at the box office.
One of Akshay's other upcoming movies Toilet Ek Prem Katha is also based on hygiene and awareness. The film is on the lines of "Swacch Bharat Abhiyan" led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
