Akshay Kumar’s recent movies have a social message in them. His recent venture Pad Man is a real-life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham who invented low-cost sanitary pad-making in India.
The movie has become a nationwide topic as Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte have all made a tremendous effort with the promotion of the movie.
Now let’s come to the numbers and check out the first day collections of Pad Man.
The movie has earned 10.26 crore on the first day itself if trade expert Taran Adarsh is to be believed. This means that the film is off to a decent start, as it has to cross the 80 crore mark to be declared a hit.
#PadMan has a DECENT start… Fri ₹ 10.26 cr… The biz, expectedly, picked up towards evening/night shows… The journey ahead is crucial… Sat + Sun should witness strong growth for a good weekend total… India biz.

If the movie manages to mint even double or triple of the first day collections, it appears that the movie can easily enter the 80 crore club within 2-3 weeks.
‘Pad man’ can face little competition next Friday as Neeraj Pandey’s directorial ‘Aiyaary’, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee, will release after getting clearance from the CBFC in the presence of the defense ministry.
Directed by R. Balki, ‘Pad man’ also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles. Produced by Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna along with SPE Films India, KriArj Entertainment, Cape of Good Films and Hope Productions, it also stars Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo appearance.
