Till now, Twinkle Khanna, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Harsh Goenka among others have taken up the #PadManChallenge and have further nominated three more friends to take it up. Twinkle Khanna singled out one tweet, which insinuated that the ' PadMan Challenge' is just a publicity stunt for the film and reflects the "hypocrisy" of the Bollywood celebs.

While we were hoping that more and more people join the noble campaign of Twinkle Khanna, Aamir Khan became the first celebrity to take the challenge.

She ask everyone to post a picture holding a pad with a message that reads, "Yes, that's a Pad in my hand & there's nothing to be ashamed about".

Earlier this day, Aamir Khan had nominated Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan to take up the challenge.
