With Toilet- ek prem katha on it’s way to become the most successful film of Akshay Kumar’s glorious career, his next venture Padman will now have to wait till 26 January, 2018. Akshay Kumar has taken a path of social reform in his film and Padman is one such proof of that. Padman is the story of a man Arunachalam Muruganatham who takes it upon himself to find a more hygenic solution for women’s sanitary pads in the rural part of Tamil Nadu. Padman is directed by R. Balki and produced by Twinkle Khanna.
Despite of the fact that Twinkle was born in the film industry this will be her first time getting into production. Star cast of Padman also includes Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor. Sonam has previously worked with Akshay in his 2011 release Thankyou, which was directed by Anees Bazmee. There were reports that Rajnikanth-Akshay Kumar starer 2.0, which is the sequel of Robot will release in January, 2018 but due to heavy vfx demands the dates of 2.0 have been pushed until further notice.
Directed by Neeraj Pandey, Aiyyary is slated for 26 January 2018 release. Aiyaary is Neeraj Pandey’s most ambitious project as it has an army background with Manoj Bajpayee playing Siddharth Malhotra’s mentor, Aiyaary is in production stage now. Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey have done their career best work with each other in films like Special 26, Baby, Rustom and Naam Shabana. Because these 2 films are clashing with each other, there is a good chance that one of them might shift their release date.
