"When your past 'whispers.' 25 years ago, my first ad ever for a big company. However, the subject was not a fancy one. In fact, such was the product that many were averse to the assignment since a sanitary pad advertisement ensured the death of a glamour-based career for the model involved. Eager to start my stint in front of the camera, I said yes! After all, why should a conversation on menstrual hygiene be taboo. Since then, there has been 'no looking back,'" wrote Smriti Irani as she shared the video.
In the clip, you can see her sitting on a chair. In the ad she talks about the menstrual cycle and addresses the taboo around it. "Periods are God's way of telling us that you are older and wiser," says Smriti Irani in the video.
