Here's her post -

There are many women in India who suffer under the shame and stigma of menstruation and Rhea surely breaks the taboo with this post.

Rhea's sister Sonam featured in 'Padman' alongside Akshay Kumar that spoke about the taboos surrounding menstrual hygiene. Talking about the same, Sonam in an interview said: "For city girls it is normal, but when we were shooting in Maheshwar and around, the ignorance I saw was shocking. Even with us, we remember our grandmother asking do not go to the temple, or in the kitchen or don't go close to the pickles. As city girls, we get to hear all of that so just imagine what girls in smaller villages are going through."

Rhea has always been outspoken about her opinions. In an interview she said that there are a lot of outspoken people in the industry and people are learning to find their voice. She also said that they were raised to know that whatever they think and say has value. She concluded by saying that there are a lot of people who have found their voice and are empowered enough to speak and it is important to be responsible about being outspoken.

On the work front, Rhea revealed recently, "I am making two new shows. It's my first show...fiction-ish. It's just been locked in. I am really excited and have a lot going on. I am also doing something with the writers of 'Veere Di Wedding'. I am doing the remake of author Anuja Chauhan's 'Battle for Bittora'. I am really excited," she said to an agency.

Meanwhile, 'Winter is Coming' or Season 8, the finale of the "Game of Thrones" will premiere internationally on April 14.  However, the show will air on the small screen in India on Star World on April 16.
