Akshay Kumar, who is promoting his film Padman today met 16 innovators from different parts of India at an event called Innovation Conclave. Akshay Kumar was so impressed by them and their innovations that he announced an award of 5lakh rupees to each 16 of them.
Padman is a biography of Tamil Nadu activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, whose mission was to provide sanitary napkins to poor women in rural areas. Who would use rag cloths or leaves during periods.
As the 16 innovators talked and discussed their inventions, Akshay was very impressed with them and it was visible. He kept on clapping for them and lauded then for their efforts calling them madman in a sense that they are so passionate for their work and ideas that they forgot everything & solely worked on building their idea into a working model.
