New Delhi: The National Award winning actor Akshay Kumar's calendar for next year is almost full. The actor will be seen in not just one or two but three big releases. Akki announced 'Gold', 'Padman' and '2.0' for 2018 and fans can't wait any longer.
Akshay's 'Padman' is one film which has the most intriguing subject and is based on the journey of a real man and his struggles. It is based on the real-life incident of Arunachalam Muruganantham—the man whose initiative to invent low-cost sanitary pad making machines in rural India helped not only his wife but other women in his village to lead a hygienic life.
Akki took to Twitter and shared a new teaser clip with Sonam and Akshay's voiceover in the backdrop.

‘Padman’ will be produced by Akki's better half Twinkle Khanna, making it her maiden production venture and will be helmed by R Balki. Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte will play important roles in the film.
Interestingly, Twinkle had mentioned about the story of 'Padman' aka Arunachalam in the final short story titled ‘The Sanitary Man from A Sacred Land’ in her second novel ‘The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad’.
Padman' is hitting the screens on January 26, 2018.
