ZEE5 Global has premiered its latest original film ‘Chhatriwali’, which has been described as a slice-of-life film set in Haryana.
BizAsiaLive.com ‘s Vallisa Chauhan spoke to lead star Rakul Preet Singh, who plays the quality control head in a condom factory. Though she is shy and embarrassed about her job initially, she soon realises the importance of safe sex and then takes it upon herself to destigmatise the conversation around sex education. Without being too preachy, the film sets the tone and delivers the message with humour and sensitivity while ensuring that the narrative is entertaining and family friendly.
The film is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and directed by Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar. Starring Rakul Preet Singh and Sumeet Vyas in lead roles, ‘Chhatriwali’ aims to drive home a strong social message on the importance of male contraceptives and safe sex.
