Earlier in the interview, ‘Pad Man’ director R. Balki praised his male lead Akshay Kumar saying, ““We all know Akshay Kumar is a huge star and a good actor but I think he is magnificent actor. Most people make lot of fuss about theories of acting, schools of acting and intellectualized cinema, he doesn’t do anything that’s why he lot like Muruganatham. He just keeps on doing it and he doesn’t talk about it. To me, Akshay greatest talent lies in, when an actor doing a biopic of a person, it is very tempting for an actor to study his body-language and to see how he talks or walks but Akshay didn’t look any of that. He just listened to what kind of character and human Murugantham is. He captured soul of the character and actually portrayed Muruganatham in Akshay Kumar style but captured the essence of the character and that very few actors can do. Most actors are fantastic at capturing body-languages of people but he didn’t do that”
PadMan star Akshay Kumar recently shared his forthcoming film’s ‘biggest achievement’ (even before its release) – ‘Breaking the menstrual taboo’ – in India. “This, I think is the biggest achievement of #PadMan…men and women breaking the taboo and discussing about menstrual hygiene.
Based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, PadMan is the story of how one man came up with a revolutionary method of producing cost-effective sanitary napkins and empowered thousands of women across the country in the process. Akshay Kumar has stepped into the shoes of Muruganantham and is all set to educate the masses. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the lead roles.
‘Pad Man’ is being produced by Twinkle Khanna, KriArj Entertainment and directed by R. Balki.
‘Pad Man’ is releasing on 09 February, 2018.
