In movie Akshay Kumar playing as Lakshmikant Chauhan and Radihka Apte as Gayatri. A movie which is trying to create awareness about women problem as well as trying to entertain people. 

In movie Akshay kumar going as far as wearing a pink ladies underwear and a pad to prove a point.

Radhika Apte portrays her part beautifully, making her character relatable to the section of women, who still face such societal taboos. Sonam kapoor too lights up the screen with her candour and makes her presence felt in a significant role.

Padman is an great empowering film that gives you the wings, despite the odds.
