Pics: Akshay along with Aditya Thackrey roll out first sanitary pad vending machines in Mumbai

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s Padman is going fruitfully in the movie halls. The film, helmed by R Balki, highlights the need of consciousness regarding menstrual cleanliness all over the nation.

It is really a worthy cause, right?

Akshay Kumar is not discontinuing at just a film though discussing the cause. With his newest plan with Aditya Thackrey, he has rolled out the first sanitary napkin vending machine in the city of Mumbai.

Aditya Thackrey declared that this is only the first of hundred sanitary napkin vending machines, which they propose to set up in the city of Mumbai.

“Placed a sanitary pad vending machine at Mumbai Central-ST Bus Depot today, hoping to place more across the State and eventually hopefully the whole country. Thank you @AUThackeray for your support,” Khiladi Kumar shared in a special tweet.

Aditya made use of his Insta handle and shared the special images from the launch, and captioned, “Akshay ji & I are placing 60 sanitary pad vending machines across the State. The rotary club has joined us with 40. We are in the 100 club! Thank you @akshaykumar ji for this initiative. Our first machine was placed at Mumbai’s First only ladies toilet in Tardeo. Now Transport Minister Diwakar Raote has given us permission to place 30 machines across MSRTC bus depots. That is where it really will be used. We also will be placing it in colleges.”

Aditya also stated that they make a plan to strengthen their project in the coming time.

Previously, the superstar Akshay commenced a viral drive on the social platform where he demanded his fellow celebrities to share an image holding a sanitary napkin in their hands. The objective was to embark upon the taboo, which sticks around a need like a sanitary pad. The operation was a big hit and a number of biggies shared the pictures.
