After a decent opening on Friday, superstar Akshay Kumar’s much-anticipated offering PadMan has shown superb growth on Saturday at the domestic box office. Due to a super positive word of mouth, the film has witnessed a remarkable jump in footfalls across the country.
Directed by R.Balki and produced by Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna, PadMan is not just a film with a social message but it is an initiative to make Indian women talk about their menstrual hygiene rightfully. This is the reason, the film is getting positive remarks from everyone across the globe.
