Padman Movie Story Line (How Pad Maker Arunachalam Muruganantham Started)

Arunachalam Muruganantham (Tamil: அருணாசலம் முருகானந்தம்) (born 1962[1]) is a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India. He is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has innovated grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. His mini-machines, which can manufacture sanitary pads for less than a third of the cost of commercial pads, have been installed in 23 of the 29 states of India. He is currently planning to expand the production of these machines to 106 nations

Here we Love to Explore the Life Story of Pad Maker Arunachalam Muruganantham in his words how he made the Low Cost and Very Effective Pad which helps women in their period days

Muruganantham, also known as ‘India’s Menstrual Man’, has already been widely documented and reported about by both the Indian and international media. Twinkle herself has based the story ‘The Sanitary Man from a Sacred Land’ in her new book The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad on this Padma Shri winner.

Well, why wouldn’t the amazing journey of a school drop-out who now lectures at Harvard, besides IITs and IIMs back home, make for an engaging film? The guy is now rubbing shoulders with Bill Gates and James Cameron no less.

Here are some interesting elements from Muruganantham’s life:

  • Muruganantham wanted to provide a clean, low-cost sanitary pad for his wife after discovering that she used dirty unhygienic rags
  • He experimented by making pads out of cotton, which did not work
  • He used his experiments on his wife and sisters to check if his indigenous pads were effective but they refused to continue using them after a few trials
  • Muruganantham approached female medical students to try out his product, but they were shy and refused 
  • He then decided to wear the sanitary pad himself
  • Muruganantham went around with a pad in his underwear and a bottle filled with animal blood, which would squeeze out the blood on to the pad at regular intervals
  • His neighbours started calling him a ‘pervert’ and his wife decided to leave him hoping it would bring him back to his senses, and even served him a divorce notice
  • After 2 years of research and findings, Muruganantham figured out how to procure the exact material he needed and the process to manufacture a good quality sanitary pad at home
  • Muruganantham’s low-cost sanitary pad making machines are now sold across India and are even being procured internationally
  • In 2014 Time magazine featured him as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the world.


Quirky, emotional, life-affirming, inspirational with a ‘true story’ tag - Muruganantham’s story has all the ingredients to make for an interesting Bollywood money-spinner. And with reports of Akshay Kumar fronting it, you can bet this off-beat real life saga will have enough mass-appeal.

For now, it’s over to Twinkle Khanna and director R Balki to make this film as extraordinary as the menstrual man who inspired it.

It wasn’t easy to convince Muruganantham, however, after making Akshay and Twinkle wait for nearly one and a half year, he gave them the rights of Pad Man. As Muruganantham revealed to a leading tabloid, “This is not one of those movies that happened in a day or week. It has taken 1.5 years for us to give it a shape. A girl called Twinkle (Khanna) had been chasing me endlessly for rights. She tracked my every move. She desperately tried to reach me when I was in Malaysia and New York. She finally caught me in London. My friends were curious why would Twinkle want to meet me. It was only then I learnt she is Rajesh Khanna’s daughter. I remember telling her, ‘Akshay Kumar has also been trying to get me for the rights.’ She’d laughed and said, ‘Yes, he is my husband.’”

The film has been conceptualized by Twinkle and will be the first production that’s going to roll out of her newly launched production house, ‘Mrs Funnybones Movies’.

R. Balki's Film Padman is inspired from real life Story of Arunachalam Muruganantham and Akshay Kumar Playing Lead Arunachalam Muruganantham. Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte are the lead actress in the film. The film Story Line is based on and Extraordinary True Story or Life of the Pad maker Arunachalam Muruganantham.

Twinkle Khanna and R Balki did lots of Effort to catch the man the get the rights to do the film. Finally they got acquired the rights and Started doing the real life Story based film.
