Many People Dissuaded Me From Making 'PadMan', Says Twinkle

Darpan News Desk IANS, 12 Aug, 2019
  • Many People Dissuaded Me From Making 'PadMan', Says Twinkle

Writer-producer Twinkle Khanna, who launched her production house Mrs Funnybones Movies last year and debuted with her husband Akshay Kumar's "PadMan", says a number of people dissuaded her from making a movie about pads.


A day after "PadMan" bagged the National Award for Best Film on Social Issue, Twinkle took to Instagram and wrote: "A journey that started five years ago with columns about menstruation, then writing about Arunachalam Muruganantham in my second book and finally 'PadMan'. A number of people dissuaded me from making a movie about pads and today Mrs Funnybones Movies' first production wins the National Award."


She added: "Sometimes you start with good intentions and good luck follows. Period."


Twinkle then shared stills from the movie, directed by R. Balki, and added that this movie truly belongs to Muruganantham.


"A big, big hug to my friend the amazing R. Balki who directed this wonderful film, my greatest support Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor who were fabulous! A big day for all of us," she added.


"PadMan" is inspired by the life of Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu who introduced low-cost sanitary pads.
