The trailer of Shukranu had caught immense attention, a lot of questions were raised on the humorous take of the film which was a sensitive topic back in the 70s. Talking about the film, Divyenndu says, “Shukranu is a very sensitive topic that has never been spoken about through movies/shows, etc. And with a humorous take, we are not intending to hurt anyone's feelings but to reach out to the audience about the subject which a lot of people aren’t aware of, of course with a slice of life, light-hearted film.”
It showcases how Divyenndu (Inder) was forced to undergo sterilization and how it haunts him. Thereon, he finds himself constantly in a spot trying to salvage the situation. In a mental flux, he is unable to associate with his newlywed wife (Shweta Basu Prasad aka Reema) and is seen escaping cozy moments with her. Divyenndu then finds an emotional escape, when he gets attracted to a girl next door (Sheetal Thakur aka Akriti) and has an extramarital affair with her.
The script is perfectly punctuated with situational comedy and is sure to create a laugh riot! A slice of life story, Shukranu is the debut digital film produced by Reliance Entertainment and directed by national award-winning Bishnu Dev Halder.
It is set to exclusively premiere on ZEE5 on Valentine’s Day 14th February 2020.
