  • Aamir Khan poses with a pad

Entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who made low-priced sanitary pads for the women of his village, began the #PadManchallenge on social media after which a plethora of stars like Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and others joined in.

Akshay Kumar, who plays the lead in PadMan, tagged Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Virat Kohli, but so far, only Alia has completed the task. The movie is directed by R Balki and produced by Twinkle Khanna.

In a tweet, Aamir Khan said, "Yes, that's a pad in my hand and there is nothing to be ashamed about".

To continue the #PadmanChallenge, he tagged Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in his post.

Aamir Khan not only took part in this awareness initiative but also passed on the challenge to other big names of Bollywood industry.

And, within minutes of posting on the social media, people came pouring in with mixed reactions on the rather aggressive and huge challenge, especially for men.

. The celebrity who accepts the challenge has to post a picture and then again challenge someone.

NaMo too has shown keen interest in watching the movie which is based on the life on Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is known as the first man to wear a sanitary napkin.

After the release of much awaited film Padmaavat, everyone is excited to watch PadMan on February 9, 2018. The PadMan challenge is trending very fast.

Superstar Aamir Khan on Friday accepted the Padman challenge, sharing on social media a photograph in which he holds up a sanitary pad.
