The Movie is all set to release on January 25 and will clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat, which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the pivotal roles. The film Padman is based on “The Sanitary Man of Sacred Land”, a short story from Twinkle Khanna’s book, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, which is inspired from the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who revolutionized the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine. Padman revolves around the story of Arunachalam who invented low-cost sanitary pads. padman-akshay-kumar-twitter_650x400_41511769453
