  • It is a biopic film researched by Twinkle Khanna

Mumbai, Dec 21, 2017: Akshay Kumar says his forthcoming film “Padman” is an honest subject.

Akshay was present at the launch of PVR Icon with Kamal Gianchandani CEO, PVR Pictures on Thursday here.

Asked about his expectations for the film and the research work involved, Akshay said: “I didn’t do the research, my wife (Twinkle) did it. The concept is hers and it was written by R. Balki. It is a very honest subject which we have to bring in front of the Indian audience. It is a must subject which is why I went for it.”

Many celebrities have acquired theatres and actor Ajay Devgn is one of them.

Is Akshay interested in acquiring such properties?

He said: “No. I would like to only make cinema. I won’t be able to do that (acquire theatres) because there will be too much work for me.”

Akshay was asked about the issue of Marathi films like “Deva” not being able to get screens for its release.

“The content that Marathi films are providing is much better than Hindi cinema. I have watched them and made remakes of two such films. I have also made Marathi cinema. So, I think whatever small problem is there, has been solved,” said Akshay.

“Padman”, directed by R. Balki, is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham, who created a revolution in the field of affordable menstrual hygiene.

Produced by KriArj Entertainment, Mrs. Funnybones Movies, Hope Productions and Columbia Pictures, the film will release on January 26, 2018. (IANS)

Akshay Kumar And Ranveer Singh Share Screen Space Together For The First time

Akshay Kumar, forget about Deepika bearing with Ranveer for the rest of her life. What about you bearing with this flamboyant flamingo for an hour?

Big relief and huge applause. The second episode of the new season of Koffee With Karan was way superior to the bland and aimless first episode, probably because Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh share a genuine kinship and were not faking it.

Not for a second.

Ranveer was the fanboy. Akshay was the older wiser superstar. Roles taken.

Their shared anecdotes did not preclude the viewers. Both Akshay and Ranveer are people’s persons, not afraid to come across as full-blooded desi Punjabi boyz(with a ‘z’ if you please).

Yes, some portions of the chat did come across as forced. The Rapidfire for example sounded too rehearsed. Some of the answers lacked spontaneity except when Karan Johar, forever in pursuit of a sensational quote, asked Akshay during the rapidfire whom he thought to be “hot” besides his wife.

“I think Deepika is hot,” Akshay asserted while Ranveer nodded approvingly.

The absolute comfort-level between the two actors, such a contrast to the phoney bonhomie between Deepika and Alia last week, won Karan’s two guests hampers full of approval from us.

It is interesting that Ranveer met Akshay for the first time when he was 8. Ranveer, not Akshay.

A word on the wardrobe. Ranveer’s not Akshay’s. He wore what looked like florid curtains stripped and stitched into trousers and vest coats.

Apparently the outfit was a gift to Ranveer from Karan.

With friends like Karan Johar, Ranveer doesn’t need enemies. Akshay for all the masti, behaved and responded with a lot of ‘thehrao’. His answers were not meant to be juicy headlines. They came from the heart.

I remember having a conversation with Akshay some time back on how much effort it takes to come across as a nice person constantly.

“None at all. Because I am not trying,” Akshay replied.

On Sunday night I could see what he meant. The benignity is an integral part of his nature.

When Karan playfully set out to determine who is the better human being between his two guests, I knew the answer immediately.

You deserved the hamper for that. (IANS)
