In the pic, we can see one of Bollywood’s most iconic couples holding hands. The cute picture speaks volumes about their real-life chemistry.
Directed by R Balki, PadMan inspired by Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist, is slated to release on February 9. The film will showcase the Padma Shri awardee’s efforts that led to the invention of low-cost sanitary pad making machines.
Muruganantham also played a key role in creating awareness about menstrual hygiene in rural India. Interestingly, Twinkle had written about the real-life PadMan in a story titled ‘The Sanitary Man from the Sacred Land’ in her second book ‘The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad’.
PadMan also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor. The film was initially slated to hit the silverscreen on January 25 but was postponed to allow Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much delayed film Padmaavat have a solo release on that date.
