This is not the first time, the actor has raised her voice for a better environment, the PadMan actress has always been quite vocal about women’s sanitation and hygiene. In a bid to raise awareness about menstrual hygiene, earlier this year, Sonam Kapoor contributed in a video – #AbSamjhautaNahin – The Shopping List, that stressed on providing low-cost sanitary napkins to underprivileged women in India.
