Nadeem Mandviwalla clears the air on Padman ban


"We can't allow the screening of films on taboo subjects in our cinemas as it is not in our culture, society or even religion", a member said. However the Akshay Kumar Starrer movie "Padman" recieved an excellent response from its audience. Ban on @PadManTheFilm in Pakistan is senseless. #PadMan must be allowed in Pakistan!

However, the Pakistan censor board has banned PadMan's release in the country for the "taboo" topic that it depicts. The film talks about one thing that most Indians are reluctant to talk about these days but needs to be discussed more often - menstruation and menstrual hygiene.

The "ban" by the censor board, while praised by the conservative segments of Pakistan, has not gone down well with women. However, there is some expectation that PadMan will manage to break even at the box office soon.

The Punjab Censor Board too has refused to clear the film as its members are hesitant to watch the film for its content.

Balki, who is now in scenic Maheshwari, the city in Madhya Pradesh, where Pad Man was shot, says it is a shame that a film is being seen in a negative light, since it endeavours to eradicate the stigma towards menstrual hygiene.

The film is based on the real-life incident of Arunachalam Muruganantham-the man whose initiative to invent low-priced sanitary pad making machines in rural India helped not only his wife but other women in his village to lead a hygienic life.
