The latest song of Padman maned “Hu Ba Hu” is about Akshay Kumar (playing Lakshmikanth) finding a new friend (Sonam Kapoor, second lead) on his passage to educate the women in his village about menstrual hygiene. The song is both composed and sung by Amit Trivedi. This peppy number with its apt lyrics of Kausar Munir, is well synced with the story.
Sonam plays the character of a teacher named Rhea who teaches Lakshmikanth (Akshay) to speak in English.The song depicts the teacher-student duo “hub a hu” heart getting attracted while attempting to educate the village women about the relevance of sanitary napkins. Now, whether this attraction is romantic or is a mere sense of admiration between the two characters, will only be revealed once Padman hits the big screen on Jan 26.
