10 Bollywood Celebrities Who Spoke About Periods Loud And Clear


Menstruation is a very common thing, it happens with women every month and yet it is a hush-hush topic. There are so many taboos around it and talking about it loudly is just uncomfortable for some people? But here’s the thing right, people follow their role models way too much, and for most of us, it’s our favorite Bollywood actors.

Similarly, Bollywood female actors talked openly about their periods, which did clear some air about this topic at a time.

1. Sonam Kapoor

Sonam had late periods compared to her peers, and it was something that was unsettling her and made her feel scared about herself, but then she did get her periods. And this is what she said about this incident,

“I was 15 when I got my period, all my friends had got way before me, so I was very upset with that when I actually got my first period I was very relieved because I kept telling my mom that there is something wrong with me because I am not getting my period.”

2. Parineeti Chopra

Parineeti worked for an advertisement for Whisper India. During an interview, she was asked questions regarding that topic and she said, “we all want to talk about how we feel in all other departments but we refuse to talk about periods”.
Where she also added,

“It’s a shame that men are still not aware of Periods! It’s a shame that men call it a problem! You have to talk about it. You can’t be shy about it.”

3. Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu has been a part of a video named, ‘what ifs’ and that video mainly broke some major social taboos which were rather disturbing to know. There Taapsee said,

“If only stereotypes were taboo and our period wasn’t. If only rashes were more alarming and carrying pads openly wasn’t. If only getting period leave was normal and saying it’s just a matter of two days wasn’t. If only saying I am on my period was common and saying I am down or I am chumming wasn’t.”

4. Kareena Kapoor

Talking about menstrual leaves Kareena spoke about how different bodies are, some might feel more uncomfortable than the others. And the fact that women deal with so many hurdles during those days of the month does affect their productivity, thus menstrual leaves should be considered. Kareena addressed about the situation,

“Every woman’s body is different, and their comfort levels are different. Some people have back pain or terrible cramps, and if a woman cannot come to work, every company should understand that.”

> This cute girl created magic onscreen with her debut movie Jannat opposite Emraan Hashmi. She rose to fame with the song ‘Zara Si Dil Mein’ from the same film but her success in this movie failed to bag any future offers for her Bollywood. Post this failure, she tried her luck in the South Indian and has gained a foothold there.
