Even though the two films are of different genres, it is likely that the clash will make a dent in the business of both. While Padman will trace the journey of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a machine that makes low-cost, affordable sanitary napkins for underprivileged women, 2.0 is the much-anticipated sequel to Rajinikanth’s 2010 hit Enthiran/Robot.
Recently, at the press meet of 2.0 in Dubai, director Shankar revealed that Akshay Kumar is not just playing the prime antagonist, but has several shades in the film.
Padman is the debut production of Twinkle Khanna’s production company, Mrs Funnybones Movies. The film also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in pivotal roles.
