The ‘Pad Man Challenge’ is creating buzz in the social media these days and movie featured Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Kapoor who are playing an integral role in the movie. The movie is based of the life of social activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social entrepreneur who invented the machine for manufacturing sanitary pads at an affordable price for ladies all across the nation.
The movie will helps in tackling taboos and addressing stigma around menstrual hygiene. The author Twinkle Khanna was recently quizzed what prompted her to make a movie on menstrual hygiene and said that “I was doing some research and reading some columns on menstruation and I came across Muruganantham’s story. Immediately it gripped me because this was an incredible story. There were two parts to this story. One part was menstruation where a man was doing something for his wife.
The ‘PadMan Challenge’ is a promotional activity in which celebrities are uploading a selfid holding sanitation pad, writing a message and urging people to not be coy about this issue of menstrual hygiene. Post which they need to tag friends of theirs to spread the message far and wide.
The recently Indian Cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri took to social media to accept the challenge and also challenged Virat Kohli, Gautam Singhania and leander Paes to take initative forward. He wrote, “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,”

Though Ravi Shastri had got motivation behind taking up the Pad Man Challenge was, but social media had a fun day with it and started trolling him on social media. The ace cricketer isn’t one of the loved Indian coach as he replaced Anil Kumble as head coach of the Indian cricket team.
Why you challenged virat kohli, anushka will not require pad for the next 9 months.

Ravi Shahtri isn’t first sports personality who has been nominated for ‘PadManChallenge’. Deepika Padukone uploaded a picture and had nominated Badminton ace PV Sindhu. She wrote “Thank you for tagging me @deepikapadukone ! Yes, that’s a Pad in my hand. Periods are normal. Just another day…#PadManChallenge,”
