It’s not about being bold, but about breaking taboos that hold us back. I have lived with women all my life, yet I have learned more about the topic while making this film than ever before. I do not mind who I offend or whose stomach I turn by being bold, this is not the Stone Age; menstruating is natural.”
One of the reporters asked him how was his wife Twinkle Khanna as a producer and was quoted saying that, “If you change nothing, nothing will change. It’s not about being bold, but about breaking taboos that hold us back. I have lived with women all my life, yet I have learned more about the topic while making this film than ever before.

The Same question was asked how it was to be a producer to an Akshay Kumar film and was quoted saying that, “Initially, I thought of making a small movie, but then Akshay and Balki (director) were both excited about the concept. Padman is my first production, so I can’t comment on what it’s like to be the producer of an Akshay Kumar-starrer, except that in this movie, the things I normally nag him about, like working too much, turned out to be an asset.”
