PadMan, directed by R Balki, is based on the real life story of Tamil Nadu’s Arunachalam Murugnantham who devised a way to produce cheaper sanitary pads.

Pointing out that a relationship is about the dynamics between two people, Balki said society tends to stereotype the roles.

He doesn't fly, he doesn't beat up 40 goons at once, he doesn't even jump off high-rise buildings - yet he's a superhero - Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who invented a machine to produce low-cost sanitary pads.

Prernaa’s father Virendra Arora was a producer to reckon with. But she had to start from scratch. There were no successful female producers before her.

Urmila Mahanta, who plays a pivotal role in the Akshay Kumar-starrer Pad Man, says the audience loves films with strong content and that a movie’s success doesn’t rely just on the banner or superstar. 

For the past several days, she has been speaking her mind vis-a-vis menstrual hygiene, as part of promoting her next release, Pad Man.
