Akshay Kumar starrer Padman released on the Box Office today on a very positive note. The film had almost no advance in all major centres but still, the footfalls for the early morning shows are very encouraging. The results of all the Unique and weird promotional activities adopted by the cast and crew of Padman will be out today. Let’s see how many people are out to watch Padman First Day – First Show!
More Women Audience for this film
Generally, we don’t notice a thing like this. But in case of Padman, we can see more women coming to watch this film than they come for other films. The reason is obvious as this movie is all about Women Empowerment.
But this difference is not huge as it is being reported. All Akshay Kumar fans, Men and Women have been excited for this film for a while. And since this is Akshay Kumar 2nd consecutive movie on a social cause, expectations from Padman is very high. His previous venture Toilet Ek Prem Katha was a huge success at the box office.
