Akshay Kumar has been ruling the Hindi film fraternity with his unparallel level of determination and acting prowess. After portraying the conventional characters for years, the actor has recently started exploring his love for the off-beat and more socially relevant topics.

The 50-year-old is awaiting the release of his ambitious film PadMan which deals with the concept of menstrual hygiene. While the other filmmakers are shifting their film's release date to avoid a clash with the big budget magnum opus Padmaavat, Akshay is least worried about the commercial success of his film.

The actor recently launched the new song of PadMan titled 'Saale Sapne', a soul-soothing track which motivates the dreamers to work hard for achieving their goals. During the launch event, he told a leading news agency, "I am not thinking about how much money it will collect from box-office. It doesn't matter to me."

Clarified his stance, Akshay explained, "For me the biggest thing was when I saw 3-4 youngsters outside my vanity van discussing about issue on menstruation. So I think this is the biggest achievement of this film, when three or four men talk about issue of menstruation."

The actor went on to add, "It is not necessary for me to think about how much business it is going to do but every morning, when I monitor my social media, I see people are talking openly about sanitary pads and menstruation and that is I feel my film's biggest victory."

'Padman' revolves around the life of India's 'menstrual man' Arunachalam Muruganantham - a revolutionary social activist belonging to Tamil Nadu transformed the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine. Slated to hit the theatres on January 26, 2018, the R Balki directorial also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
