As the quirky comedy film Helmet is all set for its release, actress Pranutan Bahl opened up about her hilarious second movie, in an exclusive with Spotboye. She said the subject handled by the movie is very unique and that it smashes the taboo in our society regarding the use of condoms.

Pranutan, who made her Bollywood debut in the 2019 romantic drama Notebook, is back after two years with a hilarious and interesting role in the movie Helmet, alongside Aparshakti Khurana and Abhishek Banerjee. She said the concept of the movie made her very eager to be on board.

Speaking about the film, the actress said she loved the world director Satram wanted to create through the film, which made her a part of it. She also added that the role is very different from her debut, Notebook, and she is excited to handle a new attitude.

Further opening up about the concept of the film, the actress said that the movie touches upon a topic, which is still embarrassing for most of the Indian population. The movie tries to smash the taboo towards using a condom, in a very funny manner, which is hilarious and everyone is going to laugh throughout, she notes. 

Pranutan says she is also expecting people to learn a few things on the message the movie is trying to establish. There should not be any taboo attached to the mind while using a condom; in fact it is a very clever and wise thing to do, she adds. “People’s guilt-trips towards condoms and the attitude of shaming others, especially women, should not be practiced anymore. Also, going to the medical store to buy a condom is 20 times tougher for a woman than a man, which is not a good norm,” notes the actress.

Helmet is the directorial debut of Satram Ramani, starring Aparshakti Khurrana who is seen in supporting roles in films like Stree and Street Dancer 3D. The film will be released on September 3, on the OTT platform ZEE5.
