The Khiladi Kumar has already mesmerised us with lots of interesting and patriotic movies that always convey some or the other important message. Now he is decided to do something we doubt many of a man can dare to do that. Akshay’s upcoming film is going to be a biopic in which he will play the role of a sanitary man. We all have heard the story of the Menstruation Man India, the man who is responsible for keeping the price of the sanitary napkin cheap and thus it can reach the rural and the lower section of the society where women are unable to buy it and thus remain inside the house. Arunachalam Muruganantha is the man who brought a huge a difference in the lives of the women living in rural area. Akshay will play the lead, and his wife Twinkle Khanna will produce it while it will be directed by R Balki.
Arunachalam Muruganathan, the social entrepreneur who was the crusader of women’s independence and hygiene and made the world’s first low-cost sanitary pad making machine. The story shook the world, and now a movie on it is just a next level of the crusade.
The project is very emotional and at the same time very risky. As if this movie fails it can affect Akshay’s career. But at the same time we salute his daring attempt to play such a role and making the man famous on the international level. The frail of the incident was there on Twinkle Khanna’s book ‘The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad’.
So it will be interesting to see how the superstar of Bollywood will pull up the character of Arunachalam Muruganantha. The project is going to be very controversial and can take the B-Town by storm. DNA quoted “It’s the kind of film that will appeal to Twinkle’s sensibilities. It will be directed by R Balki and will star Akshay. The concept is hers, and will be developed by R Balki.”
The story of Arunachalam Muruganantham is a unique one, who saw his wife use cloth as she cannot afford a pad and that make him think if he can do anything to reduce the trouble. He tried on his own to make cheaper and asked his wife and sister to help with feedback, but after a certain point of time, they refused to help as he was ridiculed and trolled by the society. His wife left him but could not stop his enthusiasm. With a long span of almost 5 years, he succeeded to make it with the machine, invented by him and thus could help the women of rural area and the backwards section with the boon. He denied the lucrative offers from multinationals only to keep the price low and continues helping them. He got his wife back along with a lot of praise and respect from various organisation and government.
Hope the move to give Akshay and Twinkle the success and respect for the daring project to bring on the silver screen and continue to spread the awareness!
