If PadMan challenge was to have a winner, the award would have gone to Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao.

Actors Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao are the latest Bollywood celebs to join the PadMan Challenge spearhead by Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor for their upcoming film Padman. Sonam had tagged cousin Arjun Kapoor for the challenge, who, in turn, challenged uncle Anil. And the Mr India star has come up with an interesting skit for the challenge along with his Fanne Khan co-star Rajkummar Rao.

Entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who made low-cost sanitary pads for the women of his village, began the #PadManchallenge on social media and tagged Akshay Kumar. For the challenge, the celebs posed for a picture with a sanitary napkin and posted it on their social media profiles and tagged others to take up the challenge. Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Ayushmann Khuraana and several other Bollywood celebs have joined the campaign.

Anil and Rajkummar decided to do something different and came up with the skit. We see Anil Kapoor behind the counter at a chemist shop as Rajkummar enters as a customer. When Rajkummar says he wants pad, Anil replies, “Ye sports shop nahi chemist shop hai. Yaha cricket ke pad nahi milenge.”

Rajkumar then replies, “Bhaisaab, sanitary pads. Napkins, jo periods me use hote hain.” And Anil is happy to respond, “Agar aaj mard ye sab khul kar kharidne lagein na to aurat ki life kitni asaan ho jaegi.” Sharing the video, Anil challenged Oprah Winfrey and Madhuri Dixit while Rajkummar tagged Ayushmann and Aditi Rao Hydari who have already become part of the campaign.

Appreciating her dad’s efforts, Sonam tweeted, “Woohoo!! Dad this is fantastic! I am who I am because of you and how you think! #progressive #feminist #artist #BestDad.”

Check out some other Bollywood celebs and their participation in the #PadManChallenge:

Starring Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor, PadMan is slated to release on Februray 9. It is based on the story of Muruganantham.
