If periods arrived to men then there would be no taxes on sanitary napkins says Richa Chadda

By News Helpline, Mumbai – 31 July, 2017

These days Bollywood celebrities taking issue of using sanitary napkins to another level. Eariler, a movie named Phullu released which presented need and importance of using sanitary napkins to the audience and after that huge star like Akshay Kumar is taking this issue forward by making a film Padman. It is based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham who found a cost-effective and hygienic solution for sanitation, specifically for women during their menstruation period.  Earlier in Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’s promotional press meet Akshay revealed that according to a report, in India, there are about 91% women who still don’t use sanitary napkins so these figure states worst condition of India in terms of this issue. The core reason for not using sanitary napkins would be lack of knowledge about using sanitary napkins and second reason is that Indian government has imposed 12% GST on it, so it is not possible to buy that for women from each strata of society. Another shocking statement on this issue came from Richa Chadda who is very blunt and outspoken when it comes to express opinions made a gender sensitive statement at Inside Edge success bash on Saturday in Mumbai that If periods arrived to men then there would be no taxes on  sanitary napkins.

When asked her is it right on government part to impose 12% GST on sanitary napkins, she said,

“ If period arrived to men then there would be no taxes on sanitary pads. Every individual has mother. Without period mother cannot conceive a child. When child is born out from women body and you impose tax on that.. Which logic is this? So I appeal that 12% taxes on sanitary pads shouldn’t be levied. It is not a luxury item, it’s a necessity for every women as we all come out of women so we all should respect that”

Talking about success of Inside Edge, Richa said,

“We are celebrating the success of Inside Edge. I am really happy with the kind positive response our series has received from the audience. I always feel good when my project receive good reviews and this time my show has become so popular normally the kind of films I do, it gets good reviews but it doesn’t get popular that much so I am very happy with it”

Talking about digital platform, she said, “In future, many more artists will be keen to act in this medium because now it has become really difficult to make small films and it has even become tougher to release and earn profit from it. I recent times, many films hasn’t worked so it impacts everything. It’s a new medium of storytelling and addition to that is we are still away from censorship”

“Amazon also chose Excel Entertainment who is known for their classy content so I only hope that the way we watch foreign shows exactly that way people from outside India should watch Indian shows”

Richa is gearing up for her next release Fukrey 2 in which she will reprise her Bholi Punjaban act from the first installment. It is releasing on 8 December, 2017.
