Directed by R Balki, the film aims at starting a discussion on women mensuration hygiene in rural areas.
The film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has helped spread awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
The film is Twinkle Khanna’s production venture in association with Gauri Shinde. ‘Padman’ also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte who play the female leads in the film.
Written and directed by R Balkiof ‘Ki and Ka’ fame, ‘Padman’ definitely looks promising.
