Padman has faired well on the box office already by earning more than 62 crores on the box office against the minimalist budget of 25 crores. Akshay has already done three films with Kriarj by the name of Rustom, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Padman. Kriarj border line entertainment with socially relevance content which is what Akshay is also trying to do with his films and hence the two are adjoining together for many projects constantly. Their films together have garnered tremendous box office and critical acclaim as well.
Post Reema Kagti’s Gold, Akshay has not signed on for any film which means that next one after that or after 2.0 can be this one. Genre of this film is again the same which somehow takes a social issue of this country merged with Akshay’s brand of entertainment. Akshay already has a film by the name of 2.0 which is just not ready to release and has been pushed more than any other film in the history, which could be understandable to a point because it is the most expensive film ever made but one has to release it at some point of time because no release date guarantees the success.
Akshay, right now is in the top gear of his career where credibility is getting mixed wonderfully with content. Kriarj and Akshay have figured out some way to make these medium budget social films and earn some good bank with them so that they can continue their model in order to raise the voice against many social evils prevailing this country. It seems as though Akshay has taken it upon himself to make India better with his films which is a very nobel decision to make as a top superstar because his face and films attract a lot of people through which one can raise his voice against as many things as one wants.
