Mumbai: Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan directed by R Balki, which is slated to hit the silverscreen on February 9, will release in Russian Federation too on the same day. I didn't have enough money, but now I can.

"Sanitary pads in India are considered as a luxury and not a necessity in many villages in India".

PadMan was initially slated to release on January 25 but the makers made a decision to defer the film's release after Sanjay Leela Bhansali approached them with a request to let Padmaavat release on the date mentioned.

As we told you, Akshay is making sure that the message of his film reaches a larger audience, which is why after the screening, he is going to pitch the idea of two-minute videos for Doordarshan. People always make documentaries but they don't want to make commercial films because they want to shy away from the issue.

It is known that director R Balki's upcoming flick "PadMan" deals with the story of Mr Muruganatham and his invention of low-priced sanitary napkin making machine.
