A Tamil Actor Will Play Muruganandam in ‘Padman’

Padman shoot begins
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle Khanna has just announced her maiden home production: a film titled Padman. Launched under her brand new banner Mrs Funnybones Movies, the movie is based on the real life story of Arunachalam Murugunathan – the man who revoultionised sanitary pads by making it feasible to women who belong to the low-income strata. Twinkle Khanna has collaborated with R Balki on this film.


Everyone expected her husband and actor Akshay Kumar to play the role of Arunachalam Murugunathan, however he has ruled out the chances of staring in the production. “As much as my wife loves me, she gets enough of me at home. She’s not going to want to work with me; her ambitions spread much further than the comfort zone of her own home,” the 49-year-old actor quipped.

As per a report in Deccan Chronicle, sources close to Balki have said that a Tamil actor could be roped in to play the main lead.
