Creating a movie around social issues has always had its challenges. But as Padman completes 2 years, its been a truly humbling experience for me to play the part of Pari. pic.twitter.com/XrsIJz9cOt— Sonam K Ahuja (@sonamakapoor) February 9, 2020
The movie is based on a book Twinkle Khanna wrote with the title ‘The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad’. The book was inspired by a real-life story of a social activist from Tamil Nadu named Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented sanitary napkin machines. She came across the inspiring story in a column that inspired her to write a book which finally came out in the form of a movie to spread the message even far and wide.
The film which already features some faces like Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte, also has megastar Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo appearance. During the shooting of the film, pictures of Akshay and Big B had surfaced on the internet and gathered mass attention. In one of the pictures, the veteran actor can be seen hugging Akshay.
Akshay has worked with many filmmakers in his long acting career. However, Padman was his first collaboration with filmmaker R Balki which added a new tick in his bucket list. Director Balki is known particularly for his innovative films, like Paa, Cheeni Kum, among others.
