More Bollywood stars are taking up the Pad Man challenge by posting a photo of themselves holding a sanitary napkin to prove that menstruation is not something to be ashamed of.
Sonam Kapoor, Radhika Apte, Ayushmann Khurrana, Shabana Azmi, Dia Mirza and Sanya Malhotra are among those who shared 'pose with a pad' photos as part of R Balki's film promotions. Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao got clicked in a chemist store.
Alia Bhatt did it while gymming while Deepika Padukone struck a pose garnering praise for Padmavaat. Though Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan have also been challenged, they have yet to take it on.
The first one to take up the challenge was Aamir Khan. "Thank you Twinkle Khanna. Yes, that's a pad in my hand and there's nothing to be ashamed about. It's natural! Period. 'Pad Man' challenge," Aamir tweeted on Friday. The actor also challenged superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and megastar Amitabh Bachchan to complete the challenge by holding a sanitary napkin and sharing a photograph. "Copy, paste this and Challenge your friends to take a photo with a pad. Here I am Challenging Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan," Aamir added. The challenge comes close on the heels of the release of Padman, a film revolving around menstrual cycles. Directed by R. Balki, it stars Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
