Akshay Kumar has started promoting his upcoming movie PadMan in full flow (heheh sorry couldn’t resist). The actor, who is now constantly being questioned about his knowledge of menstruation, answered to the best of his abilities at a recent media interaction. The actor was asked about his prep for the R Balki film, (which is also Twinkle Khanna‘s first foray into production) and how much does their son Aarav know about periods.
Here’s what he said –
Twinkle told everything about periods to our son Aarav. Nothing is hidden in our family. We don’t live double-faced lives. We have kept it very open.
He added –
It was one and half years ago that I actually got to know about it (menstruation) in detail when I started prepping for the film. Currently, it’s 82% of the female population of our country who don’t have the access to sanitary pads. I hope that even if 5% women out of 82% get the awareness, I have won the battle.
That’s a nice thought!
