Rakul Preet Singh has finally signed his first solo project focused on women and it is indeed an original project. After playing the romantic lead role in Ayushmann star Khurrana Doctor G, Rakul decided to take the AK path to stardom. Bollywood Hungama was the first to inform that Rakul has already signed the contract for a project with Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP and is ready to play the role of an executive.
In the film, a social comedy, Rakul plays the role of a condom tester. While not much is known about this at the moment, we can tell you that Marathi filmmaker Tejas Vijay Deoskar who directed Bucket List will be leading the project. While the film had no title so far, we hear that the directors have locked the name!
Says a source at Bollywood Hungama, “They plan to call it Chhatriwaali. Yes, the film will be titled that way, since Condom is called chhatri in the typical local language. Since Rakul is playing the role of a condom tester, this movie was awarded the title. While Sardar and grandson just happens to be Rakul’s first digital project, it was originally slated for a theatrical release. But Chhatriwaali is designed as a direct to OTT version, much like RSVP Dhamaka. “
Chhatriwaali is an offbeat drama that also aims to destigmatize the use of condoms. Indians are still shy about buying condoms or even uttering the word. The film will be a bold but humorous version of the same, much like Dream girl.
Before the film landed on Rakul’s lap, it was offered to Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday who declined the role. While Sara declined the film after the narration, Ananya and her team felt the concept and role was too bold for her.
