From Priyanka Chopra to Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher — a gamut of Bollywood personalities took to social media on Monday to celebrate the Oscar win of “Period. End of Sentence”, an India-set film on the taboos around menstruation.

It won an Oscar in the Documentary Short Subject category at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony. The film, backed by Indian producer Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment, is about women in India fighting against the deeply-rooted stigma around menstruation and delving upon the work of real life ‘Pad Man’ Arunachalam Muruganathan.
