International Women’s Day : Akshay Kumar aimed at ending taboos around menstruation

Actor Akshay Kumar, who is known to act in films with strong social messages like ‘Toilet, Ek Prem Katha’ and ‘Padman’ was in Lucknow recently to celebrate International Women’s Day. Akshay Kumar took his commitment to supporting fem-force to a new level when he was seen sporting pink trousers at Run4Niine, a countrywide run aimed at ending taboos around menstruation in the country.

Akshay was here to promote menstrual hygiene and end taboos around menstruation through a run that was flagged off by him. He was seen making a grand entry into the auditorium joined by the famous all-women biker group, on their motorbikes.


Speaking about his association with Run4Niine, Akshay said, “I am excited to be partnering with the Niine Movement to encourage an open and unashamed discussion on menstruation with my fellow citizens, pad heroes, change makers and path-breakers for the Run4Niine. Each one of us that takes part in Run4Niine helps to create an unstoppable force that will beat the stigma around periods.
