In December 2016, we reported about Twinkle Khanna launching her own production house, Mrs Funnybones Movies. Her production house is now co-producing Padman with R Balki, starring her husband Akshay Kumar. Buzz is that Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte will be Kumar's leading ladies in Padman.

Kapoor confirmed the development via a post on her Instagram account.


Thrilled to be a part of this prestigious project. #rbalki @akshaykumar @missfunnybones @radhikaofficial #padman

While Apte did not confirm the development, she had retweeted Kumar’s 1 January post on Padman.

The visuals speak for themselves, with the film said to be inspired by a true story. While Kapoor has worked with Kumar before in Thank You (2011), it will be Apte's first film with the actor.
