Twinkle Khanna Challenges You To Take A Photo With A Pad In This #PadManChallenge

Published on 2 February, 2018 at 10:25 pm By

It seems like Twinkle Khanna and her ‘Pad Man’ team is all set to change the Indian mindset that says talking about period or pads is a taboo through their film. Even while Twinkle Khanna has been harping on the fact of how ‘Pad Man’ is more than just a film, she continues to make all-out effort to make people realize that there is indeed nothing shameful about periods or talking about it.

While Twinkle Khanna and her team have been hoping to make ‘Pad Man’ more than a film and make it become a movement, to take that step to an even greater high, Twinkle Khanna threw a ‘PadMan Challenge’ to everyone out there.

She ask everyone to post a picture holding a pad with a message that reads, “Yes, that’s a Pad in my hand & there’s nothing to be ashamed about. It’s natural! Period. #PadmanChallenge.” She posted this on her Twitter handle challenging Aamir Khan, Shabana Azmi and Harsh Goenka.

And, within minutes of posting on the social media, people came pouring in with mixed reactions on the rather aggressive and huge challenge, especially for men.

While we were hoping that more and more people join the noble campaign of Twinkle Khanna, Aamir Khan became the first celebrity to take the challenge. The superstar posted a picture of him holding a pad with the same message and then challenged Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan to do the same.

 

 

Twinkle Khanna’s husband Akshay Kumar, who also stars in the film, accept the challenge and posted it on his Twitter page challenging Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli and Alia Bhatt.

 

 

And soon, Alia Bhatt followed suit accepting Akshay Kumar’s challenge and posted this:

 



 

Besides celebrities, many others came out to support the campaign:

 

 

While others appreciate Twinkle Khanna for her brave initiative:

 

 

 

However, there are many who can’t digest the movement and criticize the ‘Pad Man’ team, especially Twinkle Khanna, for doing anything to promote their film and not for the cause. Here’s what people have said

 

 

 

Padman is a film that talks about women’s period, menstrual hygiene, awareness and availability of sanitary napkins to all girls and women and more. It chronicles the struggles of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a low cost sanitary pad making machine and took the initiative to provide better menstrual hygiene conditions for the women of his family and those who could not afford sanitary pads. Produced by Twinkle Khanna and directed by R Balki with Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the lead roles, the film is all set to release on February 9.

Yes, a woman’s period is natural and there is nothing to be ashamed about and talking about it. Here’s hoping that, after this, no woman will have to whisper and ask for a pad when she goes out to buy a packet at the chemists.
