It’s no secret that Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar are good pals. Singh joined his idol Akshay to post a promotional video for the latter's Pad Man, which has hit cinema halls today.
Singh was among the many celebrities who attended a special screening last night.
Dressed in a grey blazer, trouser and white shoes, Singh danced with his ‘superhero’ to the Pad Man title track. Singh had earlier accepted the Pad Man challenge by posing with a sanitary pad.
It may be recalled that Pad Man was earlier slated to clash with Padmaavat on 25 January, but the box office tussle was averted after Akshay's team agreed to shift the release date of his film to 9 February.
Meanwhile, Akshay's co-actor from Brothers (2015) Sidharth Malhotra, too, accepted the Pad Man challenge, happily posing with a sanitary pad, surrounded by ladies.
Yes, these are pads. Yes, they belong to these amazing women. Yes, they were happy to lend me one so I could stand with them in support of this much needed initiative. Wishing you all the best team Padman @akshaykumar @sonamkapoor @mrsfunnybones #RBalki @radhika_apte pic.twitter.com/20YDLj0Xcc— Sidharth Malhotra (@S1dharthM) February 8, 2018
A host of celebrities promoted Pad Man by accepting the Pad Man challenge. These included Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, Rajkummar Rao, Deepika Padukone, Shabana Azmi and Karan Johar. Even sports personalities like PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal, Geeta Phogat and India’s cricket director and coach Ravi Shastri joined in the promotions.
During the release of Akshay's Rustom (2016), Singh had promoted the film by sporting the character's navy officer look and dancing to 'Zeher Hai Ke Pyaar Hai Tera Chumma' track from Akshay's Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995).
