However, before the match Wenger explained that the Gunners didn't quite have enough money to sign the 30-year-old. Although it was only 1-0, there was a gulf in class between the two rivals.

Talking about why he chose to do the film, Akshay Kumar told India Today Television, "Nobody wants to talk about it. They will realise how deeply empathetic it is to the culture of the Asian subcontinent where women die due to a lack of menstrual hygiene".

The movie has received tremendous reviews and this is the only reason, it witnessed good growth over the weekend. However the Akshay Kumar Starrer movie "Padman" recieved an excellent response from its audience.
