Actor-turned-politician; Smriti Irani has been an inspiration for millions. She made her acting debut with the TV series, Aatish and Hum Hain Kal Aaj Aur Kal. However, it was her character, ‘Tulsi Irani’, in the popular show, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, which made her an overnight star.
Smriti Irani starred in an advertisement for menstrual hygiene
In a world where talking about periods was taboo, Smriti dared to break the stereotype by doing an advertisement on menstrual hygiene 25 years back. The MP took to her social media handles and posted the video of her first ad, where she talked about menstrual hygiene and broke the taboo around it. In the throwback video, she can be heard saying:
“Those 5 days. Like what? Periods are god’s way of telling us that you are older and wiser.”

Along with the video, Smriti penned a long note and revealed how many people were averse to the assignment as a sanitary pad’s advertisement meant the death of a glamour-based career. However, Smriti was eager to face the camera and said yes to it. Her note can be read as:
“When your past ‘whispers’ ….25 years ago, my first ad ever for a big company. However, the subject was not a fancy one. Infact such was the product that many were averse to the assignment since a sanitary pad advertisement ensured the death of a glamour based career for the model involved. Eager to start my stint in front of the camera I said yes! After all why should a conversation re menstrual hygiene be taboo. Since then there has been ‘no looking back‘ #throwbackthursday p.s— yes I was thin ..ye yaad dilaane ki zaroorat nahi.”
