New Delhi, Jan 13: Recently, makers of Pad Man released the latest song of the movie Saale Sapne and the song is likely to inspire you to dream big. 

Akshay Kumar, who plays the lead actor in the film, shared the song on Instagram with a strong message on Saturday. "Dreams don't work unless you do. This one is for all the dreamers, make it happen," Instagrammed Akshay Kumar. (Thank you Akshay for such an inspiring thought) The song is picturized on Akshay and it features the journey of Arunachalam Muruganantham (entrepreneur, who developed low-cost sanitary pad making machines). Produced by Twinkle Khanna,PadMan also stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.

"Pad Man" is a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine in India. The subject of "Pad Man" is considered a taboo or a sensitive issue. So what are the elements that he has kept in mind while promoting the film?

"Firstly, do not call it a sensitive issue. It is a natural process of a human body. It is time to get rid of those taboos attached to it. It is time to treat the issue maturely. Also from the women's end, they should not shy away from talking about the issue, and certainly should not whisper about it," he said.

He feels that the way festivals like Holi and Diwali are celebrated, people should also "celebrate when a girl meets with her puberty". 

"When you celebrate it, the girl who is already going through a physical and hormonal transition, will feel confident and secure. But we excluded our women from the normalcy of life during those five days. So from the first experience, women feel that period is something they should hide. So you know where we should start from," he added.

Produced by Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna and directed by R. Balki, "Pad Man" is slated to release on January 26.
