Bollywood stars discuss their very first-period tale

Although discussing menstruation in public was always frowned upon, Bollywood actresses have never shied away from doing so. Several celebrities, including Deepika Padukone, Jaya Bachchan, Radhika Apte, and Sonam Kapoor, have bravely recounted their first-period experiences to raise awareness of menstrual hygiene and normalize it.

Deepika Padukone

According to Deepika Padukone, she will never forget the time she and her best friend Divya sat down with both of their mothers, and they helped them navigate the topic of periods with a great deal of comfort, understanding, and compassion, starting with an explanation of what periods are and why they occur.


Jaya Bachchan

Jaya Bachchan talked about her uncomfortable menstruation experience while filming and how they had to hide behind bushes to change sanitary pads in her granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda's podcast.


Radhika Apte

When her period truly began, Radhika Apte remembered it, and she began to understand why it occurred. She left the classroom to use the restroom in the middle of a lesson and was ecstatic when her period finally arrived.


Sonam Kapoor

When Sonam Kapoor was fifteen, she said she experienced her first period. She used to get upset quickly and tell her mother something was wrong with her because she never got her period when all of her friends had done so much earlier.
