We all have notice that Akshay (Khiladi) Kumar is taking up projects of meaning when it comes to selecting his movies. Past few years he has played leads in movies focussing on national importance viz Gabbar, Airlift, Baby, Rustom etc. He was also honoured with national award for Rustom. His upcoming movie Padman, is not only a patriotism story, a genre he has mastered, rather it brings out feminist rights.
Padman is not just a movie but a means of spreading awareness for Akshay Kumar. We say this because of recent developments and his super involvement in the issue of menstrual hygiene. Whether the driving force is his wife Twinkle who previously stood up for women issues many a times or something else, but his intentions are clear. Padman is here to bring a change and he is leaving no stone unturned.
Team Padman has decided to host a special screening of the movie for our PM Narendra Modi and his team. Smriti Irani (cabinet minister) and other members of ministry of information and broadcasting are to be present. Akshay also proposed a series of short educational clips on menstrual hygiene for Doordarshan to reach out to rural areas. The real menstrual man (Arunachalam Murugunantham) will also be present during the screening. Now that is a real and responsible social move. We are all proud of Akshay Kumar and his team.
Padman is all set to hit the theatres on 9th February. We all must go out and watch it…
Maybe some attention to the Padman Challenge also.. heard Karan Johar and Tiger have been nominated by Anushka last… waiting for the pics…Who knows where this Sanitary Napkin Baton is heading next.
CHEERS to the team and Akshay Kumar.
