Akshay Kumar's 'PadMan' witnesses a dip at Box Office

New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is one of the most bankable actors currently. The kind of films that he is doing lately has changed his on-screen persona completely and audience has given it a big thumbs up.

His latest release 'PadMan' talks about menstrual hygiene and addresses the problem of periods. The film has received a positive response from the viewers.

Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the latest figures.

'PadMan' has been helmed by R Balki and is Twinkle Khanna's maiden production venture. It features Akshay in the lead with Radhika Apte playing his on-screen wife. Sonam Kapoor stars in a pivotal role.

The film 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.

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’. Several B-Towners backed the film by posing a sanitary pad as part of the 'PadMan Challenge' and posted the pictures on social media.

'PadMan' hit the screens on February 9, 2018. The film is getting a solid positive word of mouth publicity and it will surely reflect on the figures.
