It's not just a film, it's a movement.

He will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Balki's direction elevates the film nearly as much as Kumar's charged portrayal. Her infatuation track with Akshay Kumar might come across as a Achilles heel for some while few might view it as a bold undertone in Balki's directorial. The whole goal behind this film initially was the fact that the actual story of Arunachalam Muruganathan is absolutely inspiring. Akshay Kumar who was associated with socially relevant movies such as Airlift, Rustom, Joly LLB 2, Toilet-Ek Prem Katha in recent times has given the audiences themes with dynamism and commitment to art.

In the second half, Akshay's Lakshmikant realizes that there's a crucial flaw to the first batch of pads that he has made, which leads him to become all the more innovative and eventually the Saale Sapne song sequence, which guides you through the man's first breakthrough. A social activist who is responsible for inventing low cost sanitary napkin making machine and creating awareness about menstruation hygiene.

He then uses this innovation to empower women in the country.

Amazon expects to spend up to US$5-billion on a second headquarters, which it says will create 50,000 high-paying jobs. Ahead of the meeting, he said he planned to make the case for Toronto's bid for Amazon .com Inc.'s new headquarters.

Petrified of Gayatri falling victim to unhygienic menstrual practices, Lakshmi decides to challenge the age-old beliefs pertaining to periods and tries to make low-priced sanitary napkins for his wife.

Getting him on board, she said, was the hardest part of the entire process, but in the end, her perseverance paid off. As an actor, I always maintain uniqueness in my characters. Suppose I do only one film in a year, what will I do during the rest of the days of the year. He's a guy who thinks rationally, questions everything, investigates and looks for the truth, which he sets his mind to uncover no matter what. "I immediately answered him saying, well, I'm here too and drove down to visit him".

A film which addresses a topic that a large population of our country shies away from talking about, Pad Man is breaking taboos relating to menstrual hygiene onscreen and breaking taboos off screen. He wants to break myths surrounding periods and it seems he has managed to do so. The Akshay Kumar has done the promotions well and already gathered a good amount of the audience to head towards the theatres and watch his film.

Khanna said it's crucial to normalize this common bodily function. "I was a part of a show wherein a lady said she runs more when she is on her period so that no one can tell her to sit at home because she is weak", Twinkle said. "Have you seen men discuss menstrual hygiene?" She took her own challenge by posting an image in which she holds up a notepad that reads: "Don't waste sanitary napkins on stupid gimmicks". It's the first time that we've taken a journey like this together, and making this project something that she could be proud of was incredibly important to me. I didn't have enough money, but now I can.
