Akshay Kumar says men should understand the need of menstrual hygiene for the women in their lives.
Akshay also featured in Pad Man, which tells a story of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham’s journey to make affordable sanitary napkins.
Directed by R. Balki, Pad Man is based on a short story from Twinkle Khanna’s book The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad. It is a story of how one man came up with a revolutionary method of producing cost effective sanitary napkins and empowered thousands of women across the country in the process.
“With the world television premiere of Pad Man, I am glad that the movie will reach every household. I would like to urge the audience to watch the movie with the entire family,” said Akshay.
