PADMAN Official Trailer | Akshay Kumar | Sonam Kapoor | Radhika Apte | 26th Jan 2018

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha December 15, 2017 :
The trailer of the much anticipated Akshay Kumar-starrer has released and the actor is touted as India's equivalent of Batman, Superman and the ilk. The trailer of the film looks promising and sincere. Probably even more earnest than the toilet-building crusader that he played in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, possibly owing to the fact that he playing a simple, real-life hero in this R Balki directorial. The story essentially revolves around the real-life achievements of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is noted for creating low cost sanitary napkins for women. His interest and efforts have eased the experience of menstruation for several hundred Indian women, especially those living in rural areas. Playing the protagonist in Padman, Kumar will star along with Radhika Apte, who plays his wife and Sonam Kapoor, who plays an activist/educator/social worker from the city. Although very little has been shown of Kapoor and Apte in the trailer, it does seem like their characters are instrumental in the success of Kumar's crusade. Padman is an adaptation of a short story written by Twinkle Khanna in her second book The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad.

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
