After ‘Padman’, Twinkle Khanna, has now backed another film on menstrual hygiene. The short film is titled ‘First Period’, which is written and directed by Zubaan helmer Mozez Singh.
‘First Period’ showcases the subject of the day of the first period from a boy’s point of view. It shows a world where don’t exist and tables are flipped.

Filmmaker Mozez Singh shared his experience to DNA and said, “When I was approached by Dasra, the NGO behind the film alongside The Gates Foundation, their brief was they wanted men to be involved in the conversation about menstrual hygiene. So, we wrote a script where we showed everything from a man’s point of view and how in that world it’s all perfect and empowering. It raises the question why can’t this happen in a woman’s world and forces you to neutralise gender disparity. First Period is another voice in that conversation.”
The filmmaker decided to take Twinkle’s feedback on it because he believes she is largely responsible for making menstrual hygiene a topic of conversation with her book and film. (Also Read: Twinkle Khanna takes daughter Nitara out for a lunch date)
“She felt the film made a solid and forceful point and she offered her support immediately. I remain indebted to her,” said Mozez.
