Akshay Kumar’s highly anticipated movie PadMan is set to hit cinemas this Friday, and we can’t wait!

In case you missed all the hype, PadMan revolves around the story of real-life superhero, Arunachalam Muruganantham – the man who made the lives of millions of rural women in India much easier.

It all started when Arunachalam discovered that his wife was using a dirty rag during her periods. Angry and broke, he spent the next 20 years of his life inventing a machine to make low-cost sanitary pads for her.

His invention has helped millions of women in the rural areas of India, and he was subsequently named Time’s 100 Most Influential People in 2014.

PadMan, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor, Radhika Apte, and produced by Twinkle Khanna, is expected to rake it Rs 13 crore on the opening day tomorrow.
