Internet was already taken by storm earlier by Mannequin challenge and the Ice Bucket Challenge, but now there is another one following the social media trends as many Bollywood celebs are accepting this one without any hesitation.
It is the 'Padman Challenge' trending on Instagram and Twitter as celebs are coming forward. The challenge is pretty simple, the celeb has to click a pic holding a sanitary pad in his or her hand and share it on social media. The celeb also needs to tag three other celebs in the caption and challenge them to do so. The Challenge is to promote a great thought from the film Padman which is based on real-life of Entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who made low-cost sanitary pads for the women of his village. The #PadManchallenge began on social media after which a number of celebs like Twinkle Khanna, Sonam Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt and others joined in.

Period. #PadManChallenge Copy, Paste this & Challenge your friends to take a photo with a Pad! Here I am Challenging @aamir_khan @AzmiShabana @hvgoenka."
