Padman is based on the real-life story of Arunachalam Muruganatham. It traces the struggle of a man who makes his mission to find affordable and hygienic alternatives for sanitary pads for women in his village thereby helping the improvement of sanitation facilities especially for women during menstruation.
Meanwhile, 2.0 which is a sci-fi movie, is the sequel to Rajinikanth’s successful movie ‘Robot’ that released in 2010. Earlier in the day, another analyst Ramesh Bala had hinted that 2.0 release might be postponed. “Looks like a delay with the VFX. The shooting has been done though with Amy Jackson recently wrapping up a song. Now that the Audio launch was successful, the news will not seem very negative. And also they’ll get more time to space out the teaser and trailer launch,” Ramesh Bala had told IE.
