'Pad Man' is not a preachy film, not a documentary: R. Balki

Aiyaary gets clearance certificate

The film collected almost Rs 25 crores in two days at Box office collection. As per the tweet of Bollywood business and trade analyst, the Friday collection stands at Rs. 10.26 crore. "PadMan" is based on the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, inventor of low-priced sanitary napkins for women in rural areas. The 32 year old actor has acted in short films Ahalya, directed by Sujoy Ghosh and That Day After Everyday, directed by Anurag Kashyap and a few feature films.

This is not only a matter of concern for PadMan team but also raises a finger on Karan Johar's production house and its creative head Ryan Stephan who, if the story is to be believed, are among the guilty party. While the theme of the movie is laudable, the movie could have been handled in a more nuanced manner, many critics mention. I have also noticed that on social media, not only women, but men are also talking about menstrual hygiene.
