Actor Akshay Kumar is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Pad Man. The movie deals with the subject of menstrual hygiene and thus celebrities these days are taking and giving #PadManChallenge in which they can be seen posing with sanitary napkins. After Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt, it was Deepika Padukone’s turn to take the challenge. The lady, who is basking in the glory of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, posed with a sanitary napkin.
Deepika took to social networking site Instagram and shared the image. She captioned it as, “Thank you for tagging me @akshaykumar !Yes, that’s a Pad in my hand & there's nothing to be ashamed about...It's natural! Period. #PadManChallenge.”

For a woman having her monthly cycle is as natural as giving birth to a child. So when our mood is swinging, don’t tell us ‘ why are you behaving as if you are you chumming’ We are stronger and resilient that’s why the universe chose us. And it’s perfectly fine to look bloated and hog on sweets as much as we want and not be asked again and again ‘why’. Period. Thank-you @sanyamalhotra_ for the #padmanchallenge Looking forward to watch #padman and claps @akshaykumar @sonamkapoor @radhikaofficial @twinklerkhanna and our dearest friend #Balki 😃 more power to all of you.
Earlier, Alia, Sonam and many other celebs accepted the challenge and posted pics on social media.

On a related note, Pad Man is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who developed low cost sanitary napkins. Along with Akshay, the film also features Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. The film is all set to hit the screens on February 9 and will fight the box office battle with Sidharth Malhotra starrer Aiyaary.
