Mumbai: Do films have an influence on the audiences? That’s a debatable question, but they for sure leave an impact. Aamir Khan once said that movies can be used as a medium to change mindsets of people, and with movies like 3 Idiots and Dangal, he is doing his bit.
Another actor who is contributing to social causes is Akshay Kumar. With several inspiring films in his kitty, he is making an effort by being a part of meaningful cinema.
With his next film Padman, he just doesn’t want people to watch it and break the period taboo, but he also wants to make a change in the society.
The movie has become the first Indian film to be screened at the Oxford Union. Twinkle Khanna has been invited to speak at one of the most reputed debating societies in the world, and she will reportedly showcase her maiden production Padman. Twinkle will talk about menstrual hygiene and stigma attached to it. The event is scheduled to take Jan. 18.
