Aim is to create awareness, not earn money: Akshay on \'Padman\'

Actor Akshay Kumar said with \"Padman\", about a man who develops a low cost sanitary pads, they are trying to reach out to a wider audience without looking at the commercial aspects of the movie.

\"With \'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha\' we had shown it (film) on Doordarshan channel, the government is also doing a good job by taking the film in a pen-drive and showing it in villages so that more people can see the film and understand it.

\"We will do something similar for this film (\'Padman\').

Our aim is not to earn money through the film but it should reach more people, more places where it is needed. We will also take the help of the government,\" Akshay told reporters here at the song launch of \"Padman\".

Akshay\'s wife Twinkle, who is one of the producers of the film, said the team got in touch with various ministries about showing the film in schools in smaller towns and cities, to make more people aware about menstrual hygiene.

\"We would want the film to be shown to school girls and principals, so it penetrates where it has to. At least we are hoping a conversation starts where the same girls, who can\'t afford a sanitary pad, would say to their parents that we don\'t need fairness creams, we need sanitary pads so that we can go to schools.\"
