Upcoming film “Khandaani Shafakhana” starring famous rapper and singer Badshah.The story line of the film is based on the issues of sex education in India.
Recently Badshah gave a statement “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” .Further adding on this he says that he got sex education while growing up.
“I was fortunate enough that I had sex education in my school. I did my schooling from Delhi. Sex is (very) natural”.
Badshah will be playing the character of Punjabi popstar Gabru Ghaatak in his debut film Khandaani Shafakhana. .The film will release on August 2, focusing on the concerns of Indian society thinking about sex as a prohibition. The film revolves around the journey of Sonakshi Sinha’s character as she takes the charge sex clinic after his uncle’s death.
“You need to know about the disorders, the importance of practicing safe sex, importance of planning a family. Look at the population of the country. We all need to know about all these things,” said Badshah.
This issue is close to his heart as he descibes the mentality still people have by adding on “I grew up predominantly in Haryana, Punjab and Delhi. As soon as you move away from Delhi towards Punjab and Haryana, I think the girl child is still a taboo. People don’t want to have a girl child.”
