The original ‘Padman’, Arunachalam Muruganantham, started a social media wave few days ago by holding a sanitary pad in his hand and asked the PadMan teams to do the same, inorder to create awareness about the Menstruation. And remove the taboos and myths which are surrounded towards the sanitary pads and periods.
Soon after, Twinkle Khanna who is the producer of the movie took on the challenge. And team PadMan started a ‘PadMan Challenge’ tagging their Bollywood friends.
Which was followed by lot of people and Bollywood celebs, like Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Diana Penty, Varun Dhawan, Akshay Kumar, Ayushmann Khurrana, Arjun Kapoor to Dia Mirza and Swara Bhaskar…
This social message spread like a wild fire with tremends response from all around. Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte will be seen playing pivotal parts.
Here are the Celebrities tweets who accepted PadMan Challenge:
