Padman is one of the most awaited movie of 2018, and there are many reasons why! The film is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has helped spread awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India.
Even though Khiladi Aka Akshay Kumar is doing his best to promote and encourage nation’s health, then why did Pahlaj Nihalani lashed out on the actor? Read below to know!
Talking in the same context, Nihalani told Deccan Chronicle, ”Children seeing condom ads isn’t going to kill them. But being encouraged to take gutka and paan masala by Bollywood role models is definitely damaging to the nation’s health.”
Questioning the endorsements by celebs like Akshay Kumar, he said, ”Akshay has a very clean image. He’s seen as a hero of the masses. Then why is he promoting a brand of paan masala? Others like Govinda and even Pierce Brosnan are promoting what’s a proven agent for cancer. If this is not detrimental to national health, what is? Condoms? Ms Irani (I & B Minister, Smriti Irani) needs to focus better.”
Lets see what Akshay has to say about it, till then, stay tuned!
