A comedy-drama film directed and written by R. Balki, 'Padman' , which will have megastar Amitabh Bachchan in a special role, is based on Twinkle Khanna's book, 'The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad', which is inspired from the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine.

In 'Padman', Akshay Kumar portrays the real-life social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inventor who risked everything, including his own reputation, to introduce low-cost and easily accessible sanitary napkins to poor women in India and around the world.

Akshay Kumar and KriArj Entertainment had earlier tied up for ' Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan'.
