As Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar's film 'PadMan' is all set to release this week, we bring you 9 interesting facts about the social drama that you probably didn't know
‘PadMan’ is based on Twinkle Khanna’s book ‘The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad’ which is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu, who invented sanitary napkin machines so that rural women can afford it.
‘PadMan’ is the only second Bollywood film to be granted access to shoot inside the headquarters of the United Nations in New York City after ‘Half Girlfriend’ in 2016.
‘PadMan’ was first slated to release on April 13, 2018. The release date was changed to Republic Day 2018 and then altered to January 25, 2018. Akshay Kumar, however, postponed the release to February 9, 2018 to avoid clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial period drama ‘Padmaavat’.
