Pakistani actress Armeena Khan and Sanam Saeed came out in support of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Padman’ that is reportedly banned from screening in Pakistan by the Federal Film Censor Board. It is also reported that the board has denied issuing a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to the film.

Indian movie, ‘Padman’ highlights the “taboo” subject of menstrual hygiene that according to the Censor board is inappropriate for display in Pakistan. The ban is imposed on the display of screening in the entire country.

However, Pakistani starlets Armeena Khan and Sanam Saeed have expressed their solidarity with Akshay Kumar and his film. In their Twitter messages, the actresses have asked the authorities to allow the movie for screening since it contains an important social message.

Periods. What’s the big deal people? 🤔The entire female population gets them including mother, sisters and daughters. They are as natural as the changing of the seasons. Let’s not make a big deal out of it. No need to ban films. They happen. Period.

Armeena Khan wrote: “The entire female population gets them including mother, sisters and daughters. They are as natural as the changing of the seasons. Let’s not make a big deal out of it. No need to ban films. They happen. Period.”

Sanam Saeed added that it is necessary to bring to light the achievement of a man from rural India whose innovation brought comfort to women living in his area.

“A man changed the lives of women across India, he made them aware of their unhygienic practices. He found a way to provide them with affordable sanitary napkins. But let’s not share that story because it has something to do with #MenstrualHygiene. Tobah! #padman,” said the Cake starlet.

Akshay Kumar plays the role of Arunachalam Muruganantham in the movie, who not only raised awareness about menstrual hygiene among rural women but also introduced low-cost sanitary napkins for them.
