MUMBAI—A new poster of Akshay Kumar-starrer “PadMan” is out, and it features the actor carrying a sanitary pad. An inspiring tale of an incredible Indian innovator and inventor, “PadMan” is a fictionalized account of Arunachalam Muruganantham’s life. It traces his journey as a rural welder from small-town India to the international arena, as he follows his dream of bringing a revolution for female hygiene in India.

An entrepreneur who refused to give up in the wake of resistance and ridicule and used his resilience and inventiveness to come up with India’s low-cost sanitary napkin-making machine, “PadMan” is a tribute to every ordinary and simple Indian, who dares to dream and make a difference in the life of million others. The tagline is “Superhero Hai Ya Pagla (Is he a superhero or a lunatic?)”

Produced by Mrs Funnybones Movies, SPE Films India, Kriarj Entertainment, Cape of Good Films and Hope Productions, “PadMan” stars Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor, and Radhika Apte and has been written and directed by R. Balki. The film will be released worldwide by SPE Films India on Jan. 26.

The trailer will be launched soon.
