Twinkle Khanna returns to films after decades but this time as a producer for her husband Akshay Kumar’s film Pad Man, directed by acclaimed filmmaker R Balki. Well, we are super gung ho about this project as it features a real life inspiring story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who brought about a change in rural South India by making sanitary napkins available to women at large. The film which will release on February 9 is already creating quite a stir with its unique social media campaigns and interesting promotional strategies.
So latest from this front is that makers have roped in Thugs Of Hindostan star Aamir Khan to jump on the bandwagon and promote this movie, albeit with a difference. Aamir just put out a tweet extending support to the film, especially his Mela co-star Twinkle Khanna, as he wrote, “Thank you @mrsfunnybones . Yes, that’s a Pad in my hand & there’s nothing to be ashamed about. It’s natural! Period. #PadManChallenge. Copy, Paste this & Challenge your friends to take a photo with a Pad. Here I am Challenging @SrBachchan , @iamsrk & @BeingSalmanKhan” Now, that’s really cool don’t you think? To get Bollywood men to promote the cause of menstrual hygiene. We are sure that all our Bollywood biggies will unify for this cause!
Last time Pad Man was in the news when Akshay Kumar pushed the release date of the film forward for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical period drama: Padmavaat. Touched by his gesture, the leads Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone couldn’t thank him enough. All said and done, Akshay Kumar is Mr Congeniality of Bollywood and therefore it is not surprising that the entire industry stands up in the support of his film.
