The trailer for Padman, directed by R Balki, is going to be released 26 December 2017. Padman stars Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte, and is based on the true story of Arunachalam Murugunatham, who was responsible for spreading awareness about menstrual, sanitary pads in the rural areas of India. He also desinged and constructed a machine that was helpful in retrieving Pad, at very low costs. The movie is going to be released on 26 January 2018, so its understandable that the trailer is releasing a month before it, to make more hype and to show the audience the first look of the revolutionary movement. It is also based on Twinkle Khanna’s novel, The Legend of Lakshi Prasad.
In another photograph that was released, shows the first look of Radhika Apte, Gayatri, who plays the wife of Akshay Kumar’s character, Lakshmikant Chauhan. The look of Sonam Kapoor had already been revelaed in the motion poster that was released some days earlier, and the starlet looks incredibly different from her diva looks in other movies.
The movie is another example of Akshay’s commitment to the social causes, as his previous, Toilet Ek Prem Katha, shone a light on the conditions of Villages in India where people don’t have proper places to go, and women have to sit out in the open to relieve themselves. The movie was a blockbuster hit.
Padman has been hyped for a long time, and is easily one of the most anticipated movie of the year, along with Akshay’s other project, the mega budgeted, 2.0, in which he plays a villain. It shows that Akshay and other stars in the movie are so versatile that they can easily go from being style icons on the red carpets, to being villagers in the remote corners of India. The trailer is sure to cause even more hype once its released.
