Ravi Shastri Joins PadMan Challenge

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. 

 Earlier, India’s star shuttler PV Sidhu had also posted a similar caption with a sanitary pad. A lot of celebrities took up the #PadManChallenge which was a campaign started by entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, on whom the film PadMan is based. Mr Muruganantham had tagged Twinkle Khanna in his tweet. Twinkle led the challenge in Bollywood and nominated Aamir Khan and Shabana Azmi to raise awareness on menstruation and sanitation.

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.
