Akshay Kumar keeps his audience delighted by sharing the recent updates about his upcoming movie Padman. Few days after he announced the release date of the movie, he shared the first look of his leading ladies Sonam Kapoor and Radhika.
Sharing the looks on Twitter, Kumar mentioned Apte as the reason why he became Padman. He referred to Sonam Kapoor as the strength behind Padman. We loved both the looks giving us insights into the characters of the leading ladies.
As we understand from the first looks, Radhika Apte is playing the role of Padman’s wife while Sonam’s character appears to have helped him in his unique mission.
The look featuring Radhika Apte and Kumar shows the two as a modestly dressed couple from a small town. Apte is holding a sanitary pad with three flowers on it.
The other look featuring Sonam and Akshay show them setting for a journey on a bullock-cart. Both of them are carrying bags with them and look cheerful. Sonam who is seen wearing thick glasses appears to be a social worker.
Kumar had a phenomenal run at the box office in 2017. This year he featured in Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Both the movies proved his mettle as a splendid actor and became the top grossing movies of the year. Aiming to maintain his blockbuster track record, he is all set to thrill his fans in 2018 starting with Padman.
Padman is based on the real life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham (played by Akshay), who became a popular figure for inventing low-cost sanitary making machines. The movie directed by R Balki is the big Republic Day release of 2018.
The movie is co-produced by Mrs Funnybones Movies owned by Akshay’s wife and actor Twinke Khanna along with KriArj Entertainment. Sony Pictures has also come on board for worldwide distribution of the movie.
