Padman is a biopic comedy-drama starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor. The film is based on the life of a real-time entrepreneur named Arunachalam Muruganantham from Coimbatore, who invented the low-cost sanitary pad making machine. The film is the maiden production venture of Twinkle Khanna which is directed by R. Balki.

The film is about Laxmikant Chauhan (Akshay Kumar) who is labeled as a weird man initially for promoting the sanitary pad among women in small towns. Padman also showcases the struggle that females in our country go through silently during their menstruation cycle and how they are missing out on general hygienic facilities which are an absolute necessity for every woman. How this transformation makes Laxmikant a superhero like Superman, Ironman, Batman etc., and how he gets support from his wife Gayatri (Radhika Apte) and a social activist Rhea (Sonam Kapoor) forms the remaining part of the film. 

Twinkle Khanna was so inspired by the story of Arunachalam Murganantham that she wrote a book called The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad which was based on his life. This book eventually was made into the film Padman and Twinkle's husband Akshay Kumar was selected to play the lead role. The film released on 9 February 2018.
