Ace cinematographer P.C. Sreeram has revealed that the shooting of actor Akshay Kumar’s ‘Padman’ will take place in a village near Indore. The movie is based on the real-life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham.

Sreeram took to micro blogging site Twitter to share the information with movie buffs. Along with the picture, he tweeted, “'Pad Man'. Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte to shoot in this village near Indore. A true story from Balki," Sreeram tweeted and also shared a picture.”

The project is Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna’s first home production and will be helmed by R. Balki. In ‘Padman’, Balki and P.C. Sreeram are teaming up for the fifth time after ‘Cheeni Kum’, ‘Paa’, ‘Shamitabh’ and ‘Ki & Ka’.

‘Pad Man’ is a biopic on Muruganantham, who found a way to make cheap, affordable sanitary napkins for women.

Along with Akshay, the film also stars talented actresses Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. Khiladi Kumar has worked with Sonam in the past but will feature with Radhika for the first time.
