Arunachalam Muruganantham, the real PadMan, shared his struggles, hardship and eventual success with mango Bollywood. A high school dropout, Muruganantham taught us it takes a lot of courage and will power to reach heights to which people only dare dream. A couple of days after the release of PadMan, a movie based on his life, we spoke to Mr. Arunachalam about the story of his life.
From going through a divorce to becoming an international success, Arunachalam Muruganantham faced a lot. Upon learning his wife was using old rags for her feminine hygiene needs, Arunachalm gets her sanitary pads. His new bride got extremely angry because he had used up a month’s worth of the housekeeping budget! “What will we eat now, she said!”
When he tried creating pads for her for the first time, he faced a lot of ridicule. Not only was he shunned by the rest of the villagers, he wife also left him for a little while. When asked how he dealt with all the ups and downs, he told us, “I feel grateful for what has happened so far it is what has made me what I’m today.” Not many know how to deal with such severe let downs in their lives and to see him overcome every adversary, one can only look at him with awe!
All the way from the beginning, Arunachalam had an uphill struggle to convince people about the need for low cost sanitary pads. His wife has always been his first and was also the toughest critic. When asked if the movie PadMan has brought about any changes or if there are still a lot of issues using the product, he says, “Awareness is missing. But things do have changed compared to 2 decades before.. still a long way to go.”
While most men squirm at even the sight of blood, Arunachalam understood the problem and could not bear to look at his wife suffering like this. Muruganantham says menstruation is a taboo not just in India but all over the world, “Yes, Menstrual hygiene is totally connected to a women’s health and lifestyle. Sanitary pad does play a role. We have over 80+% women not taking care of themselves. Lot of efforts needed to make them use hygienic practice.”
When asked about how tech giants like Google are using technology to their advantage, Muruganantham said.”Technology will surely play a important role To spread awareness – but still we need people to initiate the conversation – to start from home.”
On a lighter note, Arunachalam says the movie PadMan is a true tribute to all the things he went through in his life. According to him, Akshay Kumar played his role perfectly while Radhika Apte played the role of his wife to a tee! We asked him how similar the movie was to his life and he says, “Very similar! Except for the Sonam Kapoor part.” He further adds by saying his life could have been a lot more interesting if Sonam Kapoor’s character really was in it.
We at mango Bollywood are very grateful to Mr. Arunachalam and for his generous time. PadMan tells an inspiring story of a loving husband and an ignorant society. While it has gotten a lot of women talking about menstruation, as Arunachalam Murugantham says, solving the problem must start at home. The world is a better a place when men and women love and care enough for each other. We stand with the Real PadMan and wish him continued success in all his future endeavors!
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero First Song, Tafreeh, Is Out. Listen Here!
Tafreeh, the first song from Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, just dropped and woah, it is just as exciting as the film promises to be! Sung by Amit Trivedi, the song is experimental and promising at the same time. With Tafreeh in Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, Trivedi delivers a smooth, inspiring track which makes the wait for monsoon worth it. Featuring Harshvardhan Kapoor and his troop of thicker than blood brothers, this song gives us a glimpse of the fun life of the youngsters before they are forced to rethink their priorities.
In a world governed by technology, with the everyday pleasures of life long forgotten, Tafreeh focuses on the little joys of life. Bhavesh Joshi and the gang treat everything in their life like a game. While on the outside, everything is seen as a rosy picture, there are several dark and dreary clouds dampening the atmosphere. Listen to the first song from Bhavesh Joshi Superhero here!
Composed and sung by Amit Trivedi, the first song has Trivedi’s signature style visible through and through. Backed with Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics, the song conveys the temporary nature of life. Trivedi builds the tempo of the song, from its initial melody to a heavy rock orchestra that delivers with its energy, zip and rhythm. Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, the film marks the Bollywood debut of Harshvardhan Kapoor in the Bollywood industry and shows him as a vigilante superhero! While Motwane had the idea for the film ready 10 years ago, the film finally got made at a time when the audience was ready and waiting. Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is scheduled to hit the screens on 25 May, 2018.

Mowgli Trailer Is Out. Watch It Here!
Mowgli, The Jungle Book a fable we have loved since time immemorial, is here with a brand new twist. Dark tales and twisted jungles turn this age old story into a myriad of heartbreaks and disappointments, turning Mowgli into an unfamiliar story.
Rohan Chand is Mowgli… Stars Matthew Rhys and Freida Pinto… Voice-overs of Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris and Andy Serkis… Poster + Trailer of #Mowgli… 19 Oct 2018 release… Trailer link: https://t.co/3jQPbbRXaS pic.twitter.com/8GF2YDdrt0

Warner Bros. just dropped the first trailer of the film and by the looks of things, the bare necessities of the story captivate and draw in an eager to please audience. From the direction of the very talented Andy Serkis, Mowgli tells the story of the struggles of real life. Watch the trailer here.
The two and a half minute trailer takes us through familiar jungles and territories, with a tale Rudyard Kipling told with easy familiarity. What the new trailer does, however, wants to remind you is there is more to life than what meets the eye. While Kipling’s Mowgli had a happy ending, Andy Serkis’s Mowgli tells us not all stories have a happy ending. The comedy free trailer launches with Mowgli imprisoned in a wooden cage. He is told by his friend Bagheera, voiced by Christian Bale, “When you were a cub, I looked you in the eye and saw no fear.” With trailer coming packed with impressive punch lines and a modern twist, Mowgli, The Jungle Book, seems to be a promising watch.
Much like the other Warner Bros., films Mowgli The Jungle Book has a formidable cast. With Freida Pinto and Rohan Chand in the leads roles, Christian Bale voices Bagheera, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Shere Khan and Cate Blanchett plays Kaa. This particular project was in the pipeline for over two years now and was initially called The Jungle Book. Unfortunately, in a move smoother than butter, Disney swooped in at the last minute and released a film with the same title. Warner Bros., is will release Mowgli on 19 October, 2018!
Hrithik Roshan And Sussanne Roshan: A Sad Love Story
Their love story started when they were a mere 12 years old. Hrithik Roshan used to circle around Sussanne’s house and impress her with stunts no one could know of at that time. Their story of how they met and broke up was the stuff romantic dramas are made of, with a bitter sweet ending. For the uninitiated, here’s how the Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Roshan love story came to be!
A traffic signal gave them the green light
While signs of true love may have blossomed at a young age for Hrithik and Sussanne, the official green light for their relationship came much later. After Sussanne returned to India, the two locked eyes at a traffic signal and immediately proceeded to ignore the incident! When they got home, Kunal Kapoor was the man who the news was told.
While the two moved in similar circles for a long time, the two were scared to confess their feelings to each other. Finally, after a long to and fro of sorts, the two finally came together and boy! Was it a happy ending. At least for the time being, anyway.
The first steps
Suzanne and Hrithik dated each other for four long years before deciding to tie the knot. Their marriage, while it lasted for only thirteen years, was happy and filled with memories. He was a blue eyed, eleven fingered hunk and she was the doe eyed beauty behind this hulk of a man!
Like everything had to come to an end, so did the marriage of Hrithik Roshan’s and Suzanne Khan’s. Despite being besotted with each other for so long, the two decided to part ways amicably. If only to start as love and end as friends was the true reason, then Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne gave us true life goals!
