The aim of 'PadMan Challenge' is to make menstruation a topic, as Twinkle Khanna said in her Oxford address to promote PadMan, which she produces.
Akshay Kumar, who plays the lead role in PadMan, had tagged Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Virat Kohli, but so far, Virat hasn't completed the task.
These are some other celebs posing with a sanitary napkin in the 'PadMan Challenge'.

The 'PadMan Challenge' was conceived by Arunachalam Murugunantham, the inventor of low-cost sanitary pad making machine. PadMan, based on a short story written by Twinkle Khanna, chronicles Mr Murugunantham's attempts to provide hygienic menstrual condition for the women of his family and ultimately to all the women with limited means.
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan have started prepping for their film Sui Dhaaga. Recently, Anushka shared her picture on social media, in which she was seen embroidering a piece of fabric and she captioned it in Hindi as "Katran Se Buni Kahaani, Paiband Laga Ke Hai Sunani - Sui Dhaaga."
Varun started prepping for the film last December and shared a picture of himself working on the sewing machine.
Sui Dhaaga is based on the ideology of Make In India. Anushka Sharma married cricketer Virat Kohli in December in Italy. Her film Zero releases later this year and Pari is scheduled for a March release while Varun Dhawan will soon star in October.
Akshay Kumar's PadMan will hit the screens on February 9.
