Sonam Kapoor’s PadMan is garnering a lot of appreciation out there. Filmmaker R Balki and Akshay Kumar will always be remembered for their brave attempt through this film.
The subject of the film is quite sensitive but it has managed to pull the audience and spread awareness amongst all.
The film has successfully touched down to 70 crore mark. PadMan is made on a controlled budget and it is all set to become a profitable venture for the makers. The film PadMan has surpassed the lifetime collections of Sonam Kapoor’s Raanjhanaa in the list of highest grossing movies.
Aanand L Rai’s Raanjhanaa had collected a total amount of 62.75 crores and PadMan stands at 71.90 crores. To become Sonam’s highest grossing film of all time, PadMan will have to knock down Neerja (75.61 crores), Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (103.50 crores) and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (207.40 crores).

Recently, Akshay Kumar has installed a sanitary pad vending machine in Mumbai Central-ST Bus Depot and hopes to put several across India. He took to Twitter on Thursday to share a photograph of him along with Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray inaugurating the vending machine.
“Placed a sanitary pad vending machine at Mumbai Central-ST Bus Depot today, hoping to place more across the state and eventually hopefully the whole country. Thank you, Aditya Thackeray, for your support,” he captioned the image. Thackeray thanked Akshay and said that the film should cross the Rs 100 crore-mark soon.
Pad Man produced by Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna is based on the life of a social entrepreneur and activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a low-cost sanitary napkin making the machine.
