Akshay Kumar will be the face of the government's road safety campaign. Yesterday, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari announced that he had spoken to the actor and he had given his nod. Akshay is brand ambassador of the Swachh Bharat Mission as well. One more addition to Mr Khiladi's social endeavours.
Akshay's upcoming film Padman, which marks his wife Twinkle Khanna's maiden production venture, tells the story of a real-life superhero who invented a low-cost sanitary pad manufacturing machine to bring a menstrual hygiene revolution for women.
The film is based on a short story from Twinkle's book 'The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad'. The story is inspired from the life of Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating the low-cost sanitary napkins machine.
Its unique story, inspiring message and Akshay's portrayal, once again, as a common man's hero, has kept the anticipation level high for the R. Balki directorial, which also features Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
