“Superhero Hai Yeh Pagla” is the tagline of the to be released Bollywood Movie “Pad Man” directed by R Balki starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte, and Sonam Kapoor. Based on the life of a Tamil Nadu social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, this film is all set to be released on Friday 9th February 2018. It was initially intended to be released on 25th January 2018, however it was switched over in order to accommodate the “controversial” Sanjay Leela Bhansali film “Padmaavat”.

The plot for this movie aptly titled “Pad Man” has been inspired from Twinkle Khanna’s (the wife of Akshay) book titled “The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad”. It basically tells a  story  of Lakshmikant Chauhan (Akshay Kumar) who helps produce low cast sanitary napkins for women in the rural areas. The supporting cast includes the talented Radhika Apte, and the”stylish” Sonam Kapoor along with Amitabh Bachchan making a cameo appearance.  Furthermore, this film essentially highlights the ignorance level with regards to “menstrual hygiene” in women that unfortunately exists in India even today. The music of this movie has been composed by the talented Amit Trivedi and the lyrics written by Kausar Munir. The soundtrack consists of “5” songs of which the title song has been sung by Mika Singh. In addition, the music was officially released by the “Zee Music Company” on 26th December 2017.

With “Pad Man” on the verge of release, here is hoping that this movie does  help usher in a little sensitivity within the Indian society with regards to the delicate issue of “menstrual hygiene” in women.
