'Padman' is an honest subject: Akshay Kumar

The film is Twinkle Khanna's concept

Ians December 23, 2017

Akshay Kumar says his forthcoming film Padman is an honest subject that he feels needs to be brought to the audience which is why he took the role.

Present at the launch of PVR Icon with Kamal Gianchandani CEO of PVR Pictures and asked about his expectations for the film and the research work involved, the Hera Pheri actor said, "I didn't do the research, my wife Twinkle Khanna did. The concept is hers and it was written by R Balki."


Many celebrities have acquired theatres and actor Ajay Devgn is one of them. On questioned if Akshay interested in acquiring such properties, he revealed, "I would like to only make cinema. I won't be able to do acquire theatres because there will be too much work for me."

The 50-year-old actor was also asked about the issue of Marathi films like Deva not being able to get screens for its release to which he replied, "The content that Marathi films are providing is much better than Hindi cinema. I have watched them and made remakes. I have also made Marathi cinema. So, I think whatever small problem is there, has been solved."


Padman directed by R Balki is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham, who created a revolution in the field of affordable menstrual hygiene. Produced by KriArj Entertainment, Mrs Funnybones Movies, Hope Productions and Columbia Pictures, the film will release on January 26, 2018.
