Box Office Report: PadMan Surprises Trade Analysts


The film collected almost Rs 25 crores in two days at Box office collection. Pad Man is Bollywood's first film that will release in Russia, Ivory Coast and Iraq on the same day as it hits the screens in India. Pad Man is inspired by the story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a low-priced machine to make sanitary pads. While the first one, Toilet Ek Prem Katha, was based on open defecation, Pad Man is inspired by the real life character Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu, who had taken on the stigma around menstruation and sanitary napkins. "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", he said. His main motive was to make sanitary napkins at affordable prices. The movie is doing great business at the box office.
