The world’s first feature film on menstrual hygiene releasing in cinemas around the world on 26th January 2018.
The movie PAD MAN is the inspiring story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a rural welder from India turned incredible innovator and inventor, who certainly wasn’t wearing a cape when he was moved to provide women with access to high-quality and affordable sanitary pads 20 years ago.
Pad Man is written and directed by ad-man turned film-man R Balki (Paa) and is starring international megastar Akshay Kumar (his recent film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’) who assumes the titular role of Arunachalam Muruganantham to once again showcase his commitment to social causes. He is joined by critically acclaimed actresses Sonam Kapoor (Neerja) and Radhika Apte (Kabali).
