Evergreen star Akshay Kumar’s Padman has been making headlines due to touching upon the topic of menstruation which is still considered a taboo in numerous parts of India. Padman also starring Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte is inspired by Arunachalam who was the inventor of low-cost sanitary napkins for rural India.
The film was previously supposed to release on January 25, 2018, but to avoid a clash with Padmaavat, Padman is going to release on February 9, 2018.
But, here’s some sensational news for people looking forward to the film. The film has achieved a new feat as it has become the first Bollywood film to release in Russia on the same day and date as that of India.
Akshay revealed the news and posted, “Happy to share, our film #PadMan becomes the first Bollywood film to be released in Russia on the same day and date. So Russia, see you at the movies on 9th February, 2018! @padmanthefilm @sonamkapoor @radhikaofficial @twinklerkhanna @sonypicturesin @kriarj @indianfilmsrussia #RBalki #9Feb2018.”
