MUMBAI: Akshay Kumar seems to be donning the garb of  a ‘superhero’ for the aam aadmi of India.

The actor was seen fighting against open defecation in his last release ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ and now he is all set to lend his voice to another social cause.

Khiladi Kumar shared the second poster of ‘PadMan’ on his official Twitter account and captioned the snap, “Super hero hai yeh pagla, aa raha hai 26th January, 2018 ko: #PadMan!”

In the still, Akshay Kumar is seen dressed up in white, raising his fist while standing amidst cotton flakes, which are used for making sanitary pads.

Sonam Kapoor too shared the poster and tweeted, “A great representation of Gandhi’s quote, “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” Padman brings you an inspiring true story this Republic Day! #PadMan @PadManTheFilm @akshaykumar @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki.”

The biopic based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented low-cost sanitary pads and fought for menstrual hygiene.

Helmed by R. Balki, ‘Padman’ also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles.

The flick is slated to release on the Republic Day and will clash with Sidharth Malhotra-Manoj Bajpayee starrer ‘Aiyaary’ at the box office.
