Akshay Kumar: Cut defence budget, make 1 bomb less and make women free sanitary pads
Akshay Kumar, who is entirely set to come upward with his next film 'Padman' in the Republic Day weekend, feels that sanitary pads should not be tax-free, rather free for adult females.
During the promotional event of the film in Pune, Akki said, "Women are going for tax-free sanitary pads, but I say it should be completely free. Cut the five percent money from defence, make one bomb less and give it to women to get sanitary napkins."
'Pad Man' which is an extraordinary true story, is a biopic based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham.
Who makes cheap and affordable sanitary pads for the women of his village and fights for menstrual hygiene.
Quirky posters, interesting trailer and some soulful songs have already made fans really curious. Helmed by R. Balki, 'Pad Man' also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
The flick is all set to release on January 25, and will clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Padmaavat', which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in pivotal roles.
