Kapoor is almost ready with the script and Akshay has liked what he is developing. The modalities are fast being worked out and it won't be long before T-Series starts talking about this film.
Currently, we hear, Akshay is shooting for Padman in Maheshwar, a city in Khargone district about 91 km from Indore. Twinkle, who is producing the film, has also joined him.Padman is being produced under the banner Mrs. Funnybones Movies, a new production house started by Twinkle. Padman is a biopic of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a small town entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu who invented low-cost sanitary napkins to generate awareness in rural areas about its usages and hygiene. Arunachalam was also awarded the Padma Shri, one of the highest civilian awards by the Government of India, in 2016.
Akshay has struck a chord with Bhushan and Subhash. Both Akshay and Subhash are renowned for making quality cinema but both also have a lighter side to their personality. And what’s more, both are Punjabi and brought their larger than life persona to life on set with their crackling chemistry. As for Bhushan, he and Akshay are like family.
Divya has earlier directed Yaariyan and Sanam Re. But this will be her first film with a superstar. We hear, Akshay did not take too long to say 'yes' to Divya's offer. Divya and Akshay have known each other since a long time. She was his co-star in Anil Sharma's Ab Tumhare Hawale Vatan Saathiyon (2004).
Despite a text message, Bhushan Kumar chose not to comment on the story.
