Check out the poster of the film here.
The tagline reads: ‘Super hero hai yeh pagla’. The poster sees Akshay wearing white short kurta and loosely fitted pajama. He is seen standing on a heap of cotton with his right hand held high with his fist tightly closed. Padman is a Hindi comedy-drama film directed by R. Balki, featuring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in lead roles. Amitabh Bachchan appears in a special role. The film will be based on Twinkle Khanna’s book, The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad, which is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham. Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine. [source: wikipedia, zee]
