Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor’s upcoming film ‘Padman’ is all set to hit the theatres on February 9, 2018. The film is inspired by the story of entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who made low-cost sanitary pads for the women of his village. In the movie, people will be seeing the struggles Muruganantham had to face to achieve his goals and how he managed to become an entrepreneur while working for a cause. Twinkle Khanna has worked behind the cameras for this film and the film will be released under her production house.
For the film’s promotion, the makers came up with a unique idea and the cast of the film started tagging other people of the industry to pose with sanitary napkins and tell the world that periods are as normal as our existence in this world. #PadManChallenge got started with Arunachalam Muruganantham posing with a pad and tagging Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar, and Sonam Kapoor. The chain went on and actors like Amir Khan, Alia Bhatt, and many others joined in.

While people are praising the topic that the makers of the film have picked up, there are people who are slamming them for doing everything just to earn money.
When Twinkle posted her picture holding a sanitary napkin, a hater claimed that it is tactics to promote the film and earn money and nothing more.
Here’s what the hater tweeted:
This is an epic example of how celebrities can do anything to promote their Film. Where were you ma’am ? Why this so called awareness only before your own produced movie ? Hypocrisy at its best form.

But, Twinkle is not the person who will listen to such false claims and stay quite. Slamming the hater, Mrs. Funnybones gave a perfect reply that he deserved. Sharing the details since when she is working on this issue, Twinkle told the world that it’s not easy to beat her.
Here’s how the queen of words reacted:
In 2015 I started writing about menstruation in my columns, 2016 I wrote about @murugaofficial in my book and 2018 I am producing Pad Man -just to bring the timeline into perspective for people who look for the negative in every initiative! #PadManTalks https://t.co/U4BDpPjDfS

Twinkle has time and again proved that might have failed while expressing herself in front of the camera but she can perfectly make others understand her views and opinion with her words. Famous as Mrs. Funnybones is a proud author of several best sellers and now she is all set to debut as a producer with ‘Padman’.
