Actor turned author Twinkle Khanna is famous for her witty comments and books; many of which have become bestsellers. The actress has often admitted that she failed to prove herself in the field of acting but has finally started doing what appeals her the most.
However, the 43-year-old was back in the film industry but this time she worked behind the cameras. Twinkle’s produced Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘PadMan’.
The movie is all set to hit the theatres on 9 February 2018 and the makers are coming up with unique ideas to promote the film. They have even started #PadManChallenge on social media because of which celebrities are posting pictures holding sanitary pads.
The film is inspired by the story of entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who made low-cost sanitary pads for the women of his village.
The trailer of the film succeeded in winning millions of hearts. It has powerful dialogues that will stay in your mind after watching the film.
The trailer has a scene in which Akshay Kumar, who is playing the character of Muruganantham is giving a speech and talking about the pain women go through during periods.
It is a well-known fact that period cramps are painful and this is the reason why women time and again raise the need for menstrual leaves at workplaces. Twinkle Khanna, who has taken up such powerful subject in ‘PadMan’ has some ironic beliefs that have blown people’s minds.
The actress does not support menstrual leaves and says that women should not use periods as an excuse. As reported by NDTV, Twinkle said,
If there is too much pain, then one can take an off just like they do for any other sickness like a stomach ache. Women should not make period a reason to take a leave. A lot of people think women should stay at home, so why give them an excuse to stop women from doing anything? I was a part of a show where in a lady said she runs more when she is on her period, so that no one can tell her to sit at home because she is weak.
