Mallika Dua Trolled Akshay Kumar On Twitter And Got Cracking Replies From Khiladi’s Fans


Akshay’s Padman is all set to take the silver screen today. We’ve been all waiting eagerly for this film which is centered around a very strong social message. Akshay’s movie promotes menstrual health and is based on a true story.

The story of the movie is based on a real-life hero named Arunachalam Muragananthanam who went beyond stereotypes to promote menstrual health. He was disturbed at the fact that women used rags instead of sanitary napkins.

He then invented the machine by which he could produce cheaper sanitary napkins. Not just this but he also went about creating awareness around the issue. Akshay’s flick ‘Padman’ is a tribute to this hero.


We’ve seen a lot of celebrities posting pictures with a sanitary napkin in their hands. This is a part of the Padman challenge which these celebs undertook in order to support Padman. The Padman challenge went bizarrely viral over the social media.


We already know how things went bitter between Mallika and Akshay during a reality show. Vinod Dua, Mallika’s father even slammed Akshay for his apparently inappropriate comments on Mallika Dua. The little cold war became even larger when Mallika Dua took a dig at Akshay Kumar.

This is what Mallika Dua posted

“Always remember, each time you feel weak, each time you feel lesser than your equals, each time you feel you’ve been made to feel lesser for no reason and that the fight has just about begun… When you feel the society and the government have not given you your due, hold up a sanitary pad and post a picture of it on Instagram. You will feel empowered. So empowered. Bye.”


In a clarification given later, she said that she is not against Padman but the Padman challenge which she finds inappropriate.

“Preying tabloids would be disappointed to know that I wholeheartedly support the idea of a movie like PadMan and the fact that it is being helmed by a massive film star will attract a huge single screen audience because that’s the only way cinema will help destigmatize menstruation for the masses that look at it as a thing. It’s the Instagram challenge that’s wasting pads, targeting the wrong audience and masking itself as a movement when all it is a marketing gimmick that I find stupid. I hope and pray the movie does exceedingly well, reaches and teaches people and brings about the change that only cinema has the power to bring. Sorry I can’t feed your hunger for sensationalism there.

But she got trolled badly for taking a dig at Padman and the Padman challenge.
