Khandaani Shafakhana will make people think: Sonakshi Sinha
The film depicts the journey of a young girl who inherits her dead uncle's sex clinic in Punjab
Sonakshi Sinha says her forthcoming project Khandaani Shafakhana will make people think why sex still remains a taboo in the society.
Directed by Shilpi Dasgupta, Khandaani Shafakhana depicts the journey of a young girl who inherits her dead uncle's sex clinic in Punjab.
"On hearing the film's one-line pitch -- 'story of a girl who inherits a sex clinic' -- I was like why would they even approach me for such a film," Sinha said.
"But when I heard the full story, I said I must do this film because it's a very relevant and important subject that should be discussed," she added.
Does she feel the film will take away the taboo around sex?
"I don't know that, but it will definitely get people to start thinking. It's a step in that direction. How have we as a society labelled the reason for all of us being here as taboo? It's something to think about," said the actor.
The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, and Divya Khosla Kumar and is slated for release on August 2.
