Yes, that's a pad in my hand an there's nothing to be ashamed about. It will be interesting to see whether Big B, Bhai and Badshah take up the challenge sportingly or not! The Dangal (2016) actor proudly held a sanitary pad and encouraged his followers to talk freely about it. So far actors Alia Bhatt and Amir Khan have posted their pictures with a pad and have nominated their other friends.
