Just a few more days to go before Akshay Kumar’s most awaited film PadMan hits the theatres. Since the movie raises awareness on how normal ‘periods’ are and how we shouldn’t be ashamed of talking about it, we are more than eager to book our tickets.
Call it a promotional gimmick or an added effort to that end, ‘PadMan Challenge’ started by entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, on whom, the film is based is attracting a lot of attention – from celebrities and public alike.
The latest to accept the challenge was PV Sindhu who was nominated by Deepika Padukone. Sindhu took to Instagram to accept the same.
Deepika Padukone had also shared a video of her holding the pad after being nominated by Akshay Kumar.
Thank you for tagging me @akshaykumar ! Yes, that’s a Pad in my hand & there’s nothing to be ashamed about…It’s natural! Period. #PadManChallenge Copy, Paste this & Challenge your friends to take a photo with a Pad! Here I am challenging Badminton Champion & Olympic Medal Winner @pvsindhu1 👊🏽
Other celebrities who joined the challenge include Sonam Kapoor, Twinkle Khanna, Aamir Khan, and Shabana Azmi, to name a few. If you think holding a sanitary pad is as normal as holding a phone in your hands, join in. This is the time to normalise periods. Period.
