However, the actor wants to continue his efforts in this direction even after the release of Pad Man.
Even though the Hollywood industry is considered to be way more liberal than Bollywood when it comes to films being an expression of art, it's surprising that not even a single Hollywood film has been made on menstrual hygiene.
We can't wait for the film to get released. "We have tried to do that", he added. Akshay will be seen playing the role of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who made low-priced Sanitary napkins for the women in the rural areas who could not afford expensive sanitary napkins.
Akshay's "Pad Man" - which marks his wife Twinkle Khanna's maiden production venture - tells the story of a real-life superhero who invented a low-priced sanitary pad manufacturing machine to bring a menstrual hygiene revolution for women.

The film is based on a short story from Twinkle's book "The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad". The other day I was sitting in my vanity van and I heard two-three guys discuss the film.
The video also gives a glimpse of Akshay Kumar's character Lakshmikanth at the United Nations who draws a comparison between pads used to protect the legs of cricketers and sanitary pads used by women, strongly making a point that there is a need for menstrual hygiene.
Pad Man is the world's first feature film on menstrual hygiene.
