With Rs 10.26 crore of collections on day one, and highly positive reviews from critics and the face of Akshay Kumar, the movie is set to become another hit.

"Pad Man" tells a story of a Arunachalam Muruganantham's journey to make affordable sanitary napkins. Akshay Kumar's character Laxmikant is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Coimbatore native who invented a low-priced sanitary napkin producing machine. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmaavat, after seeing so much trouble even before its release, is being rewarded with a strong box office run, with the film raking in Rs 3.5 crore nett on its third Friday.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office collection of the film on Twitter. In such circumstances, we can not allow a film whose name, subject and story are not acceptable yet in our society. He alleged that he had sent a script to Dharma Productions and scenes in the film have been lifted from his story. The board members even refused to watch the film on request from the distributors. I have also noticed that on social media, not only women, but men are also talking about menstrual hygiene.

With a final time of 3:10.728, Mazdzer won silver thanks to a strong closing run over the last two rounds. Mazdzer performed his best on the world's biggest stage to bring home his first Olympic medal.

"I was completely devastated but I couldn't have point the allegation at that time because Twinkle Khanna has said that they were making a film on his life".

Akshay Kumar, the most versatile star of Indian cinema, has done it again. The critics are praising Akshay Kumar's performance in the film as he tries to tell the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who invented a low-priced sanitary pad making machine and helped spread awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. Initially scheduled to be released on January 26, 2018, the film was already clashing with Neeraj Pandey's "Aiyaary" and the supposed release of "Padmaavat" meant three big films clashing on the same day. The Federal Censor Board (FCB) of our neighbouring country has not only denied Pad Man a certificate but its members have also refused to watch the film, saying that it is based on a "taboo subject".
