Padman, featuring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, also stars actresses Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. The film went on floors last month. Padman is directed by R Balki.
On collaborating with Akshay, Twinkle, 43, earlier told news agency PTI that she is ‘happy to be a part of a great team.’ “I think it’s a great team. We are playing tennis doubles, and I think that’s a pretty good foundation for a marriage to last.”
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is also a part of Padman. Mr Bachchan, who has starred in R Balki’s Cheeni Kum, Paa and Shamitabh has a guest appearance in the film.
Akshay Kumar recently won his first ever National Award for his critically-acclaimed performance as a navy officer in Rustom. His Padman co-star Sonam Kapoor too got a special mention for Neerja at the 64th National Film Awards.
