Bollywood celebrities have often promoted causes through their stardom in order to bring greater change in the society. One such Bollywood celebrity includes Taapsee Pannu, who has collaborated with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay in their initiative to promote the importance of sanitary education among women. This program also consists of supply of sanitary napkins in villages.
The actor said that she intends to eradicate the mark of disgrace associated with menstruation.
“I have never understood why menstruation has been a taboo subject, people don’t want to come out in the open and talk about it. Women often use code language to talk about it. That’s probably one of the reasons why the sanitary health of women has not really improved over the years,” said Taapsee Pannu.
She believes that people need to openly discuss about sanitary health. “It’s a natural aspect of womanhood. It needs to be discussed, so people understand it better,” said Pannu.
Taapsee believes it is remarkable that the students are making an effort to bring in the change in the attitude of the people.
“It’s a delight when young minds work hard to create awareness about such issues,” said the 30 year old actress.
On the work front, Taapsee Pannu will be seen next in Judwaa 2 along with Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead. The film is directed by David Dhawan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. The film is rebooted version of 1997 film Judwaa starring Salman Khan, Ramba and Karishma Kapoor. Judwaa 2 will release on September 29.
