Mumbai: Akshay Kumar is perhaps one of the most underrated actors in the film industry. The superstar, who was initially known for action oriented films, has now evolved as an artiste and his recent choices of films prove it. After leaving us spellbound by his flamboyant performance in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, the Khiladi star is all set to make a splash as Padman.
The film is slated to hit the silverscreen on January 25 and we will see Akshay as a unique superhero!
Now, as we wait for the film to release, here’s taking a look at the reasons to watch Padman.
The hunk of an actor has an ocean of fan following and has audiences both in the urban and rural belt. Moreover, most of his films are complete family entertainers and hence he has fans across all age groups. His personality apart from being an actor has a magnetic charm and his philanthropic activities make him a real hero. He is an immensely popular and a powerful brand.
The film is inspired by Padma Shri awardee Arunachalam Muruganantham’s noble initiative to make cost-effective sanitary pads producing machines. He was instrumental in creating awareness about menstrual hygiene in rural India. Padman will see Akshay essaying the man in question in the film.
Amitabh Bachchan’s Cheeni Kum, Paa are some of R Balki’s best films. The filmmaker has a unique style of treating a story and knows how to extract the best from his actors. And since Padman is written and directed by an ace storyteller like R Balki, we shouldn’t miss watching this film for sure.
Radhika Apte has been paired with Akshay Kumar in this film. She essays the role of his wife while Sonam Kapoor plays the lady who helps Akshay succeed in his mission.
Akshay’s previous release – Toilet: Ek Prem Katha - inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swacch Bharat Abhiyan– was appreciated by the audience. Padman speaks about menstrual hygiene, a subject that has always been taboo.
So are you ready to grab your ticket?
