These Two Actresses Will Star In Akshay Kumar’s Padman
Sonam Kapoor And Radhika Apte Ropes In For Akshay Kumar’s Padman
Akshay Kumar gave his fans a reason to celebrate when in the beginning of the year he unveiled his list of upcoming projects – all so different from each other. The others were relatively known films. One film that caught everyone’s frenzy was Padman.
Padman will be actress-turned-writer, Twinkle Khanna’s debut production venture under Mrs. Funnybones Movies. Putting all rumours to rest, this movie directed by R. Balki is going to see Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte alongside Akshay Kumar.
Sonam confirmed the new by tweeting the same look of the film that Akshay has earlier shared. Sonam captioned the picture as, “Thrilled to be a part of this prestigious project. #rbalki @akshaykumar @missfunnybones @radhikaofficial #padman.” Radhika Apte also retweeted the look on her Twitter account.
This is the second time Sonam is teaming with Akshay, they have previously worked in Thank You (2011) whereas Radhika will feature with the Khiladi for the first time.
This film is reportedly based on the real life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine. Arunachalam is credited for having innovated grass-root mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
However, the release date has not yet been declared.
