2018 is proving to be a BLOCKBUSTER year for Bollywood as many content-driven films will hit the silver screens. Film-makers and actors are experimenting with never-before-seen ideas and offering variety to the movie lovers.
After giving a run-away hit, ‘Toilet:Ek Prem Katha’, Akshay Kumar is back with another flick and this time on a very important issue. PadMan which is based on the importance of menstrual hygiene released on Friday in 2750 screens across India.
The R Balki directorial is inspired by the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented low-cost sanitary pads for the women in rural areas. The movie is challenging the stigma around menstruation in the country
PadMan which also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte seem to have strike the right chord with the B-town celebrities who are in awe of the social drama.

#PadMan mesmerises you with the story and storytelling, both... This well-intentioned film enlightens, educates as well as entertains... R Balki, take a bow. This is amongst your best works... Must watch!— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 9, 2018
Akshay is making brave choices as an actor and that’s remarkable. He drives the movie with an impeccable act. #PadMan will stand out in his filmography, for sure... Sonam is charming... Radhika Apte excels...— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 9, 2018

🙏🏻 #Balki and @mrsfunnybones for telling us about our very own selfless superhero...
Bollywood seems to have given a thumbs up to the comedy drama and we definitely know why.Considering the theme and good performance of the actors we are sure the movie will do quite well at the box office.
