Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte’s much-awaited film Padman has finally hit the theatres today.


Akshay Kumar’s Padman was released in 2750 screens in India and 600 screens overseas whereas his previous film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha was released in 3000 screens in India and 590 screens in overseas. In the morning shows, the film had witnessed occupancy of around 25-30% at the box office as compared to his last movie Toilet: Ek Prem Katha which could secure 30%-35% occupancy.

Morning Occupancy: Akshay Kumar’s Padman Has A Decent Start At The Box Office
Padman Box Office Morning Occupancy: Takes A Decent Start At The Box Office


The star power of Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor should definitely help the film to score a good opening weekend. The film’s power lies in its target audience, the women whose strength in the theatres, is on what the future of the film rests on.

With no other big films releasing this week and a solid two week gap between Padmaavat and Pad Man, might help the film to bag all the box office collection to its name. Though the early occupancy percentage is lesser than Akshay’s previous films Toilet and Rustom, the movie has taken a decent start.

The first weekend might work in favour of the film as well as taking into account positive reviews and word of mouth, it is a hopeful situation for Akshay’s Padman.

Helmed by R Balki, Padman is a biographical drama is about a social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented and provides low-cost sanitary napkins to poor women in rural areas.




  1. it was much awaited bollywood movie which is truly based on a social issue that makes it more popular .Akshay Kumar is on a regular basis coming up with films having a social message, and that is fine and commendable.

  2. The real story of Lakshmikant Chauhan who made low cost sanitary pads. After marrying to his wife. He comes to know that She use Dirty Clothes During her periods and She cannot enter kitchen For 5 days During Her periods , When He Comes To Know From Doctor that Using Dirty Clothes in Periods Can Cause Many types of infections etc , Lakshmi then Himself Decides to making and selling Sanitary pads. What all he faces during that time everything has be directed well. A great story of the man who tackled the taboo of periods in the country is shown in a mediocre way. Maybe the lead could have been more relevant & grounded as the topic demanded. 3 hearts is what we give to Padman starring Akshy Kumar, Sonam Kapoor & Radhika Apte. Topic credits to the producer Twinkle Khanna & a good show put up by director R Balki
