Radhika Apte to play Akshay Kumar’s wife in Padman

10

Akshay Kumar will be seen in Padman directed by R. Balki. The movie is loosely based on the life of the entrepreneur Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented the machine that manufactures sanitary pads in low cost.

Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte have been roped in to play the female in the film. Talking about the film Radhika Apte said, “Shooting begins in early March and prep starts this week. The characters speak shudh Hindi so I’ll be focussing on my dialect. I’ve had some readings with Akshay and Sonam and though the film is based on real people, I’m trying to stick to the script and how Balki sir perceives my character.”

Apte will be seen playing the role of Akshay’s wife in the film. Talking about it, she said, “Akshay’s is the main part, but I play his wife and that’s a crucial role. In certain films it’s not about the length of the role but what your part adds to it.There’s a lot of meat in this character and I’m excited.”

She was all praises for her co-stars Akshay and Sonam, she added, “I’ve grown up watching Akshay’s films, he’s been there eternally and is always in great form. I met him for the first time at the reading and his questions, suggestions and concerns about the script and characters were interesting. I’ve met Sonam a few times, she’s lovely and I’m looking forward to spending time with her at the shoot.”

Padman is expected to arrive at the end of 2017.

  1. This is very old news arenajiii
    But luking at the starcast I think it will be flop
    But being akki fan I want yeh bhi somehow 100 crore cross kar Le
    Best wishes for padman

  2. Am i the only one who feel that this is a bad choice from akshay? If he wants to help his wife to become an independent producer there is a beter way to do that than bring a weird story to you conservatieve indian audience. When is he going to sign a universal appealing film for his real fan base and stop signing some of these so called intellectual films. Films like Airlift etel are not bad but when are you going to give a big action film to your fans

  3. Again a New Actress with AKKI….
    We all know how uniquely talented Radhika is…
    both will definitely give best act…
