All projects don’t need big names: Feroz Abbas Khan

The director released a five-episode courtroom drama web series on sex education, sans any big stars, titled Sex Ki Adalat

Published: 24th October 2017

Director Feroz Abbas Khan, who released a five-episode courtroom drama web series on sex education titled Sex Ki Adalat last month, believes every project does not need a well known actor’s association as it’s the content that eventually drives the show.

Khan’s series, available on YouTube, covers taboo and debatable topics like India’s obsession with male child, virginity, masturbation and menstruation, infused with scientific facts in the form of a courtroom drama. 

However, contrary to the latest trend of big screen actors working on the digital platform, the series is devoid of big film actors. Khan says, “Many a times it depends on what your content is, and you do the casting accordingly. When I made the musical Mughal-e-Azam, many people asked me this question. Today, it is the biggest hit. It does not have a single known name. Some of the most popular projects on social media have not a single big name, but were big because of the content. Internet is a very different world and something can absolutely win there on the strength of the content alone.”
