Akshay Kumar who was recently seen in Jolly LLB 2, has now begun shooting for Padman. It will be Twinkle Khanna's maiden production venture.
The film is based on the real-life incident of Arunachalam Murugananthan, the man whose initiative to invent low-cost sanitary pad making machines in rural India helped not only his wife but other women in his village to lead a hygienic life.
Akshay took to Twitter and shared the first glimpse today. He captioned the image as: “Embarking on a new journey, this time with the Mrs. First day of @mrsfunnybones' #Padman directed by R. Balki, need ur love & luck as always.”
Padman will be releasing in December 2017.
