Lakshmi is a newly married, humble welder from a rural village in the heart of India.

However, the film forces you to look at the big picture. Twinkle was was clearly inspired enough by it to then tell his story in her book and now convert it into a film.

Merely 12 per cent of women in India have access to sanitary napkins while the rest are forbidden from using them. H fact it was also speculated that if Akshay's social drama will be able to beat Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat in terms of first day collection. R Balki's much-hyped film is based on the real life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham. I've learnt more from making this film than I have ever known even after being surrounded by women my whole life.

"I wanted to make sure that technically we did not go wrong, so he agreed to supervise", Balki, the director, said of Muruganantham's role on set.

Its unique story, inspiring message and Akshay's portrayal - once again - as a common man's hero, has kept the anticipation level high for the R Balki directorial, which also features Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. The song gives the perennially weepy Gayatri to swing her waist, but achieves little else.

Given the unusual subject it was dealing with along with the commendable promotional strategy, PadMan managed to get a good response from the audience.

Now let's come to the numbers and check out the first day collections of Pad Man. So, what you get is a mix of social awareness campaign and a humorous take on the fears and apprehensions associated with sanitary napkins. I am confident that this film will bring about a lot of change. And to be honest with you, every time I am on my periods and I work out, I seem to do it better as compared to other days.

I feel his music is so fitting to any script he has directed music for especially in Pad Man. I suggested to have something on the lines of a superhero. The film traces Lakshmi's fight with the society, his own financial and educational limitations, his family and even his wife, in order to ensure women start using hygienic alternatives when they are menstruating. His latest release Padman with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte is getting exceptional feedback from critics and audiences alike after the initial premieres. It is also the first Indian film to release in Russian Federation on the same day, i.e February 9, 2018.
