In Padman, Akshay Kumar will portray the role of Tamil Nadu-based social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham
Akshay Kumar’s Padman is creating a huge buzz on the social media, thanks to its eye-catchy posters of the film. The makers of the biographical drama have released one more poster and we must say, Akshay Kumar looks apt as the common man – social activist, Arunachalam Muruganantham in it. The 50-year old actor shared the poster on his twitter account and captioned it, “#PadManTalks : Mad only become famous! @PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki” In the poster, Akki is seen in a cotton factory holding cotton pieces and smiling looking at them, while in the background there are bunch of sanitary pads, which are getting in the production in the factory. It also has an interesting subtitle which reads, Superhero hai yeh pagla (This mad person is a superhero), which can be said as a one-liner of the film.
