Akshay Kumar looks quite busy in 2017 with his upcoming films. It seems like this year is going to be a fruitful year for the superstar. The actor shared his upcoming films on New Year’s Day. He revealed 3 of his films- Jolly LLB 2 which is going to hit the theaters on February 10, Toilet Ek Prem Katha, 2.0 along with Rajinikanth and last but not the least Padman.

This is what he tweeted –

Well, Padman seems quite interesting as the film is ringing questions in the minds of people. Padman is a film based on true story of a Tamil Nadu man named Arunachalam Muruganantham. The film is a biopic on his journey. Here is the poster –

Who is Arunachalam Muruganantham, the original Padman?

Also known as India’s Menstruation Man, Arunachalam Muruganantham struggled to provide cheap sanitary napkins in his village. The man was quite perturbed when he got to know that his wife used filthy pieces of a cloth during her periods. After great research, this man found a solution to the problem after a lot of thought and manufactured sanitary napkins of good quality at home. These pad making machines are sold across India and are finding a place in the international market as well.

Arunachalam Muruganantham is a college drop-out from Coimbatore. Once called as a pervert by his neighbors, has now become a motivating man worldwide. He is truly an inspiration.

The film is directed by R Balki and produced by Akshay Kumar’s wife Twinkle Khanna. This is Twinkle’s debut film as a producer and the film will release under her own banner ‘Mrs. Funnybones Movie’.

This is what Twinkle tweeted –

We need more men like Arunachalam Muruganantham who is truly inspiring and is removing the taboo attached to periods. Also, Hats off to Akshay Kumar for accepting such a brave role and bringing alive such brilliant unsung hero.
