While Akshay Kumar is no stranger to doing films with strong social messages, the stakes with Pad Man were higher given its subject. However, if the opening weekend collections are any indication, the actor’s brave attempt seems to have paid off. After earning Rs 10 crore on day one, the film minted Rs 13.50 crore on Saturday and took the two-day tally to Rs 23.50 crore. The social drama is expected to earn about Rs 40 crore over the weekend. Trade expert Amod Mehra says it is a sign of the changing mindset of the society.

“The collections show that the audience is not shying away from watching subjects that were earlier considered taboo. It will definitely have a strong first week collection.” Trade analyst Komal Nahata says, “It’s not a commercial subject, but looking at the collections, it feels otherwise. I hope more filmmakers and actors make films on subjects that educate the audience.”
