Akshay Kumar's Padman to release on Republic Day next year

Padman Akshay Kumar Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte

The film is directed by director R. Baqi.

Now adding to the excitement, Akshay took to Twitter to unveil two pictures as he introduces the two ladies of Padman - Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. The film will hit the theatres on January 26 and will clash with another Akshay Kumar movie 2.0 starring Rajinikanth. Set in Uttar Pradesh, Kapoor and Apte don a very traditional, and simple look. In both of these photos, Akshay is seen in two different looks. Gayatri's simplicity and innocence warm your heart. The actor shared the picture on social media and in no time it became viral. Perhaps, hinting that Apte is the Padman's wife. Well, it is Radhika Apte's first film with Akshay Kumar, but on the other hand, it is the second film of Sonam Kapoor with Akshay, after Anees Bazmi's film Thank You.

With her costume, Kapoor's character Rhea seems like an educated middles class girl.

This film is not less than a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham, the person who began a revolution in his village by providing hygienic sanitary napkins to the women. He captioned "The STRENGTH behind #PADMAN...", From the picture and the caption it looks like Sonam will be playing a social worker in the film. Of course none of these would have been possible without the humble visionary R Balki.

She wrote: "Such a pleasure working with the indomitable Akshay Kumar". In Padman, the Jolly LLB 2 actor will be playing the role of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the mastermind behind low-priced sanitary pad making machine.
