Bollywood is getting people to talk about even the most hush-hush subject like menstrual periods and pads!!! And aren’t we just loving it!!! Never in my wildest dreams did I think that people, let alone celebrities, would begin to talk about this “taboo” subject!!

All of us remember the covert operations that went into buying a pad from the grocery or medical store – don’t we? Walking up all nervous and “whispering” “Pad chaiyee” and seeing the Bhaiyaa pack it in the newspaper. And then to be doubly sure the Bhaiyaa would place it in a black fully opaque bag – as if men’s eyes fell on them, they would go blind!! Such was the stigma surrounding a natural process that every woman underwent!!

Now that Bollywood has woken up and is talking about – women’s hygiene it has become super cool to be seen holding up a pad! Not that we’re complaining!

Check out these super cool celebs who have no qualms about being seen with a pad in their hands.

#1. Akshay Kumar
