while the Pad Man Vs Padmaavat (both releasing on Jan 25) is hotting up, here
is some news on Pad Man. We
were the first to tell you that Sonam Kapoor plays someone who comes into
Akshay's life after he is married to Radhika Apte.
This R Balki directed upcoming film, produced by KriArj Entertainment (Prernaa Arora & Arjun N Kapoor) is based on the real life story of Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham. He is the man who invented the machine that manufactures sanitary pads at a low cost. Akshay plays the lead role.

But you see, there was no 'other woman' who came into Muruganantham's life.
SpotboyE.com brings you yet another EXCLUSIVE piece of information on Pad Man. Sonam is a fictional character in the film.
Confirming this, Balki told SpotboyE.com, "Certain modifications were made in Muruganantham's life story before we put it on celluloid, so that we tell the story in a very interesting manner."
Having extreme faith in his director, Akshay perched himself first on the January 25 tree when it was hotly rumoured that Padmaavat is planning to bag the same day for its release. Padmaavat joined officially only later. Goes without saying that it will be an extremely interesting fight to the finish.
Akshay has been super excited about Pad Man from Day 1.
After completing the shoot of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, he had taken to his Twitter account to announce the start of Pad Man. “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” he wrote and posted it with a picture of him holding hands with Twinkle.

While Radhika's enthusiasm and belief in Pad Man is known, Twinkle too is very high on Pad Man.
Mrs Funny Bones has said that everyone should watch this film as the subject is socially relevant. “It is a beautiful inspiring story. It’s a socially relevant film. Through Pad Man we want the story to reach every nook and corner of India. The motive is to raise awareness about sanitary hygiene," Twinkle had told the media.
We bet the same has rubbed off on Sonam.
P.S. We are coming up with an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW of R BALKI- The Man Behind Pad Man. Don't go away.
