    Padman is a true story of real life (super) hero Arunachalam Muruganantham, a school drop-out from Coimbatore who made it his life's mission to provide low-cost sanitary napkins to poor women across rural India.

    A Fictionalized Version

    The real life Padman Arunachalam Muruganantham had revealed that Akshay's film is a fictionalized biopic. He was quoted as saying, "They have taken the core of my story and set it in fiction, taking many instances and references from my experiences. It is not a quintessential biography, like Gandhi."

    On the topic of menstruation, earlier Akshay had told a daily, "If you change nothing, nothing will change. It's not about being bold, but about breaking taboos that hold us back. I have lived with women all my life, yet I have learnt more about the topic while making this film than ever before. I do not mind who I offend or whose stomach I turn by being bold, this is not the Stone Age; menstruating is natural."
