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, who features as the antagonist in the much-awaited, high-budget entertainer “2.0”, went through an elaborate prosthetic make-up process for his character. The actor says it was quite a test of his patience and that it has calmed him down.

“It was really a hard process for me to get the prosthetics done. For almost three and a half hours, I had to sit down quietly and do nothing. Three people used to work on my body and I had to stay patient…that was tough. I would say that the whole process of prosthetics made me a much calmer and patient person.

“I am already a patient person, but this made me more subtle and mellow at that time,” Akshay Kumar told a select group of media here on Monday.

The procedure used to not end there as the removal of the make-up required one and a half hours. The actor found it quite painful. In fact, Akshay Kumar had to stay on a liquid diet of water, smoothies and juices during his shooting schedule.

“When I used to go back home, I knew that I have to do the same thing again tomorrow morning. The make-up was so hard and covered that it used to close all the pores of my body and during my entire six hours of working, my body sweat used to not come out. So in the end when they used to remove the prosthetic, I had the smell of sweat,” shared the actor, who feels fortunate to have worked with iconic southern Indian filmmaker S. Shankar and with megastar Rajinikanth.

“I clicked a lot of selfies with my family. My wife and daughter were there with me. my daughter was quite excited to see me in the look and she was not scared at all…because she saw that some people are putting something on her father’s face. She was fine,” smiled the father of two children.

The movie, which also features Amy Jackson, will release on Thursday in 14 languages including Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. Karan Johar is presenting the Hindi version of the film. (IANS)
