Revealing her first look in Padman, actor Sonam Kapoor has said it was a joyous experience to work with the “indomitable” Akshay Kumar in the real-life inspired story. “Such a pleasure working with the indomitable Akshay Kumar. He was the perfect person to play the role of Padman and has brought a sense of humour and love to the film,” Sonam wrote, unveiling her first look from the film.

Directed by R Balki, the movie is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented the first low-cost sanitary napkins in India.

“Of course, none of these would have been possible without the humble visionary R Balki,” she added.

Praising Akshay in another tweet, she wrote, “Dreams & dedication are a powerful combination - William Longwood. Padman is an incredible story that Akshay Kumar has brought to life with such grace and humility. Coming to a city near you!”

The movie also features actor Radhika Apte, who plays Akshay’s onscreen wife. The National Award-winning actor also shared Radhika’s look from the film and tweeted, “The REASON he became #PADMAN...”

The movie is scheduled to release on January 26.
