"Not only this film "Padman" but I think even "Padmaavat" should not have been released in Pakistan as it portrays Muslims in a very negative light", Noor said. The actor, director Balki and producer Twinkle Khanna (Akshay's wife) are being praised for making a socially responsible film and narrating it an entertaining and thought provoking manner. 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. And She was inspired by Arunachalam Muruganantham who is a social activist of Tamil Nadu. Friday 10.26 crroes, saturday 13.68 crores.

The makers have taken care of the entertainment quotient in the film and thus it's likely to appeal the family audience.

The movie was filmed at a landing cost of Rs 65 crores which includes production cost (Rs 50 crores) and promotion costs (Rs 15 crores).

It is a hard and uncomfortable subject to make a film on, that too a full length feature, and even if you are above the stigma situation escorting the good old pad stuck in the nether part of a woman's anatomy, it still makes you a bit shifty to see it on the big, bold screen.

Pad Man, Bollywood heartthrob Akshay Kumar's latest film had a fabulous first day at the box office with the film collecting more than Rs 10 crore on its opening day.

"Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the box office figures of Padman writing, "#PadMan has a DECENT start. Picks up spreed and biz should be strong on Sunday too. The social-drama based on the life Arunachalam Muruganantham aka the Indian sanitary pad revolutionary has been in much news because of its content and promotional gimmicks before its release, however, has failed to get off to an impressive start at the domestic box office on Day 1. PadMan, starring Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor in the lead roles, has garnered more than Rs 23 crore in first two days.
