New Delhi [India], December 7 (ANI): Akshay Kumar is all set to don the garb of a 'superhero' for the aam aadmi of India in his upcoming movie 'PadMan.'

After releasing two posters and several looks from the film, the 50-year-old has now treated the fans with a motion poster.

In the clip, we can hear co-star Sonam Kapoor teaching Akshay the spelling of 'PadMan'.

The 'Rustom' star shared the motion poster on his official Twitter handle and captioned it as, "P-A-D + M-A-N = PAD MAN. It's that simple :) Coming to you, this Republic Day, 26.01.18@PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki #PadMan."

The Khiladi of Bollywood was last seen fighting against open defecation in 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' and now, he is all set to lend his voice to another social cause.

The actor will portray the role of Arunachalam Muruganantham in the movie, who invented low-cost sanitary pads and fought for menstrual hygiene.

Helmed by R. Balki, 'PadMan' also stars Radhika Apte in a pivotal role.

The flick is slated to release on the Republic Day and will clash with Sidharth Malhotra-Manoj Bajpayee starrer 'Aiyaary' at the box office. (ANI)
