It has been told that Radhika Apte is playing Akshay Kumar's wife in the film, on the other hand, Sonam Kapoor is playing social activist in the film. Directed by R Balki, Padman is a biopic on entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham (played by Akshay), who became a popular figure for inventing low-priced sanitary making machines and hence, the name of the movie. The film will hit the theatres on January 26 and will clash with another Akshay Kumar movie 2.0 starring Rajinikanth.
It is for the first time that Akshay is sharing screen space with Sonam and Radhika.
In another tweet, he introduced Radhika Apte with a caption that read, "The REASON he became #PADMAN.find out on 26th January, 2018".

Padman traces the journey of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inventor of the machine producing cheap sanitary pads for women belonging to poor families. In these two stills, Akshay Kumar has shared his look with both the leading ladies of the film, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
Akshay has shared a picture of the film on Instagram where co-actor Sonam is also present. Sonam has even praised the director R.Balki by saying that the movie would not have been possible without the incredible story that an actor Akshay Kumar has brought to life with such a grace and humility. Now, it would be interesting to see if makers of 2.0 postpone the release of their movie to avoid competition. He was the ideal person to play the role of #Padman and has brought a sense of humour and love to the film.
