Padman cast Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte indulge in some BTS backseat talk and you do not want to give them a miss.
Akshay Kumar who had a successful 2017 is all set to make 2018 bigger and better. The actor who has three films lined up for release this year is already gearing up for the first one which releases on 26th January 2018.
Titled Padman, the film is produced by Twinkle Khanna's production house Mrs Funnybones Movies and is helmed by R Balki. Apart from Akshay the film also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte and is a fictionalised account of Tamil Nadu based Arunachalam Muruganantham, who created affordable sanitary napkins for the women of his village.
While the songs and the trailer of the film are getting a thumbs up from the audience, another confession video of the star cast has made its way t the internet.
The first video titled backseat confession featured Sonam, Akshay and Radhika in which Akshay jokingly said that while Radhika and himself belonged to Pune and Punjab respectively, Sonam hailed from Paris. He further went on to make fun of the gowns, Sonam wore at the red carpets. Check it out.
The second video from the confession has released too in which both the leading ladies talk about how they have admired Akshay Kumar and his work. While Radhika spoke about all the Khiladi films she has seen, Sonam revealed that she would take her car around Lokhandwala just to get a glimpse of the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha actor.
Talking about working on the topic of menstruation, Akshay Kumar had said in an earlier interview, “If you change nothing, nothing will change. It’s not about being bold, but about breaking taboos that hold us back," Akshay Kumar said in an earlier interview.
Director R Balki said, "I never wanted to do a biopic. I wanted to do my own fictional stories but this subject was great. This guy's life is fascinating. Where will you get to do a mass mainstream film on a subject like sanitary pads? I felt it was a fantastic opportunity, that's why I took it up."
Coming to the confession videos, it is great to see some behind the scenes talks and witness the amazing camaraderie the trio shares.
