INDIA: India coach Ravi Shastri on Tuesday joined the PadMan Challenge by posing with a sanitary pad. Taking to his official Twitter account, Shastri posted, “Yes, it’s a Pad in my hand. Happy to support rockstar @akshaykumar for breaking the taboo and initiating an open conversation. AK, am sure no ball is going to hit PAD (MAN). #PadManChallenge Here I challenge @imVkohli @SinghaniaGautam @Leander”.
Shastri also asked India skipper Virat Kohli and tennis legend Leander Paes to join the social initiative.
The Akshay Kumar-starrer movie Pad Man, which is slated for release on February 9, attempts to spread awareness on menstruation and is based on the same subject.
