Badshah and his songs are something every Indian grooves to. After making us dance to some of his hit numbers, rapper Badshah is now getting ready to woo the audience with his acting skills in Sonakshi Sinha and Varun Sharma's Khandaani Shafakhaana. The film that has released today, talks about sex as a taboo in our Indian society and how people react to the topic.
During an interview with TOI, he said that the movie is attempting to break the taboo around sex, Badshah said that the makers have tried to tackle the sex issue in this movie. He also talks about the huge generation gap. Due to this gap in thinking the makers are trying to bridge through this film because there is no other way to put it. However, the Indian rap star Badshah feels sex shouldn't be shunned away as a taboo topic and says he can't wait to have the sex talk with his daughter at the right age.
His daughter might think "papa ko kya hogaya achanak se", but Badshah plans to make it fun for her. "Can you talk to your parents about sex? I don't. But that is something that we all must do," Badshah told IANS while discussing how sex still remains a taboo in India. "I have a daughter and I can't wait to have this chat with her, of course at an appropriate age. I want her to know everything. I don't know how. Probably she will feel awkward 'ke papa ko kya hogaya achanak se' (what happened to papa all of a sudden). I know I have to make it fun," added the singer, who became father to a daughter in 2017.
Badshah has picked a script which tackles the issue of sex education in India to mark his acting debut in Bollywood. He will be seen as a Punjabi popstar Gabru Ghaatak in his debut film "Khandaani Shafakhana". Khandaani Shafakhana is slated to release on August 2, aims to put the spotlight on the issue of how Indian society considers sex a taboo topic through the journey of Sonakshi Sinha's character as she inherits her dead uncle's sex clinic.
Speaking of the movies, SpotboyE.com Editor Vickey Lalwani reviewed the movie and rated 1.5 stars, he wrote, "Khandaani Shafakhana is a classic case in point of someone (Shilpi Dasgupta) who wanted to experiment whether she can make a film. Natija: Tumse Nahin Ho Paya. What a waste of time, money and resources. Sex clinic! Perhaps Shilpi thought that the people of this nation are sex-starved and laden with sex problems and will come running to the theatres to shed their inhibitions and get solutions. Might not happen, they will be busy increasing this country's population and they well know how to do it! Sounds crass?"
