PadMan Challenge trolls: Radhika Apte's response is a ideal reply to haters

The man behind Padman MIB: Menstrual Hygiene Guidelines engage all sections

Akshay Kumar is now consistently green-lighting socially-relevant films, and that is fine and laudable (Pad Man is produced by his wife Twinkle Khanna, a witty commentator on social mores). Appalled to see his new bride using grimy rags during her menstrual cycle, Chauhan decides he must find a way to make life easier for her. Wherever I went and spoke about menstrual hygiene, I was beaten up by people.

Padman stars her husband Akshay Kumar as Muruganantham, while Radhika Apte plays his wife. "There should be awareness on menstrual hygiene among men as well".

He further wrote, "Recently, the PADMAN trailer released, and most of the scenes has been taken from the summary I had sent to MR. Ryan stephan". Check out what some leading critics have to say about the film.

Director R. Balki speaks on his journey with Padman and his experiences with Arunachalam Muruganantham, the inspiration behiund the film. School dropouts among girls are higher simply because they lack accessibility to sanitary napkins that would give them mobility or a clean toilet.

Given that trailer, Akshay Kumar's general love for macho superhero status, and the moralistic advertisement for a government project that was his last movie, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, I was pretty sure Padman was going to be another exercise in celebrating Akshay Kumar's virtuous masculinity and respect for women. "Trust me guys it's the best feeling to not have access to pads when you're bleeding and the Pad Man challenge is all that is needed to destigmatise a woman's period". I have no money in my pocket to hire a famous lawyer but I promise to pay a heavy amount after I win this battle.

It also unveiled the ability to archive stories and keep on the profile, the Stories that one would have stuck around. According to a report by The Next Web , the trick can be used to breach Instagram's system as well.

Twinkle hopes that the film will bring a positive change in the people's outlook towards this topic. It begins with Amitabh Bachchan's voice announcing that the US has Batman, Superman and Spider-Man, but India has its very own superhero, Padman (AKA the champion of all noble causes now seeing their time in the sun, Akshay Kumar). "Women should not have to see periods as a reason to take a leave".

The movie also skims through - not a fault - what is a realisation perhaps by the real-life Murgunantham that he can fight the battle on one of the two counts.

Filming Pad Man was not without its difficulties.

In coordination with Pad Man's opening, a social media campaign was launched called #PadManChallenge, encouraging people to post a selfie holding a pad to help break the silence around menstruation. A woman creates an average of 125 kilograms of menstrual waste during her menstruating years in the form of used sanitary pads.
