PadMan Trailer: Akshay Kumar is the crazy, sanitary superhero we always needed

Akshay Kumar has revealed the trailer for PadMan, his next with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. Watch it here.

After creating an immense hype around the film, Akshay Kumar finally revealed the trailer for his upcoming film, PadMan on Friday. The film, which also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in lead roles, promises to be the story of a social awakening, told through the lens of humour.

The trailer begins with a narration from Amitabh Bachchan who calls PadMan India’s answer to the superheroes of the US. Akshay has the idea to make sanitary napkins for women and is even shown trying some on in a pink underwear himself. He pitches the idea to his sisters and his wife, who all feel ashamed to even discuss the sanitary health with their brother and husband respectively.

Embarrassed by his noble pursuits, his wife leaves him and the people of his village shun him. That is until hope walks back into his life in the form of a social worker who helps him realise his dreams.

Soon, the village embarrassment’s venture takes off, women buy his pads and IITians study him and his work.

Check out the Padman trailer:

Radhika plays Akshay’s wife and the inspiration behind all that he accomplished for women’s menstrual health. Sonam is the one who helps him do it all. All actors fit their roles quite well but Radhika shines the brightest with her innocent charm.

In this R Balki-directorial, the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha star, is stepping into the shoes of national hero Arunachalam Muruganantham -- the inventor of low-cost sanitary napkins for women in rural areas. Produced by Twinkle Khanna’s Mrs Funnybones Productions,the film has been a passion project of the couple since she wrote a newspaper column on women’s sanitary health and the stigma associated with it, two years ago.

The film is slated to release on the Republic Day and will clash with Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee-starrer Aiyaary at the box office.
