Deepika Padukone accepts Akshay Kumar's challenge, posts video holding sanitary pad

Later on, taking up the challenge, Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte, Shabana Azmi and Alia Bhatt had posted their photos on social media with a sanitary pad in their hands and tagged other peoples to forward the challenge. Though Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan have also been challenged, they have yet to take it on. The Dangal (2016) actor proudly held a sanitary pad and encouraged his followers to talk freely about it. As the film's release date is inching closer, he wanted to bring awareness about "periods" and eradicate that awkwardness we have regarding girls using sanitary pads. In Padman Challenge Twinkle asked Hindi film stars to click a picture of themselves with a pad in hand and say that it is completely natural to do so.

Akshay Kumar is already receiving appreciation for his film Padman, even before its release due to its content.
