Sony Pictures Entertainment, India has bagged the global rights for R Balki's Padman. 

Padman has been Inspired by the life of Indian entrepreneur and inventor Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented the low cost sanitary pad-making machine and revolutionized the movement of cost-effective female hygiene in India. 

Talking about the SPE's partnership with Akshay Kumar, Sanford Panitch, President, Columbia Pictures, expresses, "Akshay is the rarest of artists, not only is he the definition of movie star and producer, but what makes him and Twinkle so special is that they have a found a way with this film to make a wonderfully affecting and heartwarming movie that also can impact social change." 

Kumar had done two social entertainers in 2017, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Jolly LLB 2. He once again showcases his commitment to socially themed films with PadMan. 

Talking about his partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment India, Akshay says, "PadMan is a very special film for many reasons. It is my wife's first production from Mrs. Funnybones Movies. She introduced me to Arunachalam Muruganatham and his wonderful story. It is a story that has universal resonance and Balki has brought it to life beautifully. Sanford and the Sony Pictures team are ideally placed to take the film to audiences worldwide and we look forward to sharing this journey with them." 

The film is directed by R Balki and co-stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles. Padman is scheduled to release in India and worldwide on January 26th, 2018. 

This family entertainer is going to warm your hearts, entertain you and make you think at the same time.
