With just a week away from 'PadMan's release, Akshay Kumar's team has come up with an innovative promotional strategy of posing with the sanitary napkin. Earlier, Twinkle Khanna tagged Aamir Khan and Mr. Perfectionist obliged by proudly posting a photo with the pad. He later passed on the challenge to stalwart Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan. Taking the challenge forward, Akshay has now tagged Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli, and Alia Bhatt to take up the challenge of posing a picture with a sanitary napkin in hand. However, Alia Bhatt has taken up the challenge in her own way and has posed with the sanitary napkin in her gym. Alia, who was working out, hung upside down and held the pad in her hand.

Innovative, we say! 

Not only Alia Bhatt but Radhika Apte, Twinkle Khanna, Harsh Goenka and many others have sportingly taken up the 'PadMan Challenge'.

Here are some of the pictures of stars posing with the pad:
