On Wednesday Akshay shared two stills of his upcoming movie 'Poster' featuring himself along with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
Sonam Kapoor who is also playing an pivotal role in the movie also took to Twitter and shared the look of her character. Sonam wrote, "Such a pleasure working with the indomitable Akshay Kumar. He was the perfect person to play the role of Padman and has brought a sense of humour and love to the film".
'Padman' is inspired by the life of Coimbatore-based Arunachalam Muruganantham, who found a way to make affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village.
Sonam also praised the film's director R. Balki.
"Of course none of these would have been possible without the humble visionary R. Balki," she said, and added: "'Padman' is an incredible story that Akshay Kumar has brought to life with such grace and humility. Coming to a city near you."
The film is produced by Twinkle Khanna. It is her first production venture. 'Padman' is scheduled to release on 26th January 2018.
