A new poster from the movie, Padman has been released, and it shows Akshay Kumar holding cotton and surrounded by, what looks like Menstrual pad making machines. The movie is directed by R. Balki, and also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in supporting parts, with a cameo from Amitabh Bachchan. The movie is based on the novel by Twinkle Khanna, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, which was in turn inspired by the life of Arunachalam, who was responsible for creating menstrual pad machine for the women living in rural areas, and also educated them about female health and other important topics that couldn’t be discussed with them before.
