After much speculation, Akshay Kumar’s leading ladies in Padman have finally been confirmed.

Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte will star opposite Akshay Kumar in Padman. While Sonam and Akki have earlier collaborated in Thank You, this will be the first time Akshay and Radhika will be seen together on the big-screen.

Sonam herself took to her Instagram feed to announce their involvement.

Thrilled to be a part of this prestigious project. #rbalki @akshaykumar @mrsfunnybones @radhikaofficial #padman

It is based on one of the stories from Twinkle Khanna recently released book, ‘The Legend of Laxmi Prasad’. The story is about Arunachalam Muruganantha, who campaigned extensively for menstrual hygiene in rural India and was known as ‘Sanitary Man’.

It will be directed R. Balki and is one of the most exciting films to look forward.
