Sonakshi Sinha has made some bold film choices off late such as Noor, Akira and Lootera. She was last seen in Kalank, and is gearing up for her upcoming film Khaandani Shafakhana.
Khaandani Shafakhana is about a sex clinic that Sonakshi Sinha inherits from her dead uncle and her journey around it. Her motto for choosing such a film was to clear the air around individuals to talk about sex.
“I’ve decided to do this film because it’s a very relevant and important subject that should be discussed. I don’t want anyone, woman or man, to shy away from talking about this topic. I hope my doing this film, will give them the courage to talk about sexual issues openly. Am sure this movie will get people thinking… and talking. ‘Baat toh karo’.”
The director of the film, Shilpi Dasgupta feels that simply talking about sex in the first place would clear many problems related to it.
“Did you know that till very recently, sex education was banned in quite a few states of India? This is an issue we must all rally around. Sonakshi really took on this challenge, something most people would be hesitant to even discuss, let alone play the role. We hope that we will be able to help people to no longer look at sex as a dirty word.”
The film releases on August 2.
