Ahead of the World Menstrual Hygiene Day, Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, who is the member of jury for the 75th edition of Cannes Film Festival, shared her ‘Period Story’ in a short film in order to raise awareness and overcome the menstruation taboo.
In the special video, Deepika can be seen recollecting her childhood story of being educated about the period even before her school started menstrual education.
The actress, in the video, says: “I will never forget this moment where my best friend (Divya) and I were sat down by both of our mothers and her mom took charge of guiding us about periods – from explaining ‘what periods are’ to ‘why it happens’.”
“I am really grateful for how she took us through this conversation with extreme comfort, empathy, and patience. I look back on it as one of the most notable moments while growing up, and I wish to spread the word across the world in a similar manner”, the “Chennai Express” star added.
The ‘Period Story’ is a special video by fem-tech brand Nua.
Ravi Ramachandran, Founder, and CEO, Nua, in a statement, called it “a conversation that does not deserve a hushed tone. For children, be it girls or boys, parents need to start the conversation with them early and slowly so that their understanding can be built before puberty hits”.
“It is also essential that as you build their knowledge on the topic, you guide them through it with utmost comfort and patience so that they never take it as an uncomfortable topic.”
Jennifer Lawrence dissed for claiming there’s no female action film lead before her
Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence has been widely criticised after claiming that there’s no female action movie lead before her.
Speaking with actress Viola Davis for Variety’s Actors on Actors about female action heroes, she said: “I remember when I was doing ‘Hunger Games’, nobody had ever put a woman in the lead of an action movie because it wouldn’t work – because we were told girls and boys can both identify with a male lead, but boys cannot identify with a female lead.”
She added: “And it just makes me so happy every single time I see a movie come out that just blows through every one of those beliefs, and proves that it is just a lie to keep certain people out of the movies. To keep certain people in the same positions that they’ve always been in.”
Many quickly disagreed with Lawrence as Franklin Leonard, founder of The Black List, said on Twitter in response to the interview: “It is untrue that no one had ever put a woman in an action movie before Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Hunger Games’.”
