"she will play the role of a sexecutive."
Rakul Preet Singh is set to star in a social comedy, reportedly playing the role of a condom tester.
The project is being helmed by Ronnie Screwvala and his company RSVP Movies.
The company is known for developing its own scripts and screenplays. In addition, RSVP Movies works with directors that share the common vision of storytelling.
Ronnie is now rumoured to be collaborating with Rakul Preet Singh for a woman-centric film.
According to a source, the film has a theme that is similar to the type of projects that Ayushmann Khurrana takes on.
It will reportedly see Rakul play a condom tester.
The source told Bollywood Hungama:
“Rakul has already given her verbal nod to the project.
“It is a social comedy, much on the lines of the projects that Ayushmann (Khurrana) usually picks up for himself.
“It’s a yet-to-be-titled project which will have Rakul essaying the role of a condom tester.
“Yes, you heard it right, she will play the role of a sexecutive.”
Condom testers are a real thing. Big manufacturers hire adults and pay them to test and check the durability of condoms during their act of intimacy.
This is done for every new product prior to its launch. The feedback given is taken into account.
The source went on to say that the upcoming film looks to address the stigma around condoms, adding:
“It’s a quirky drama that also aims at destigmatising the use of condoms.”
“Indians are still shy while buying condoms or even uttering the word.
“The film will be a bold but humorous take on the same, much like Dream Girl.”
The source continued: “Rakul was thrilled when she was approached for the film. She heard the narration and agreed to do it.
“Now, the modalities are being worked out before she signs on the dotted line.
“She will begin the film sometime in the coming months once the situation normalises and knowing RSVP, they plan to wrap up this small film in record time.”
While the project is still in the very early stages, Rakul has a number of projects lined up.
One of those is Sardar Ka Grandson and it is about a grandson’s mission to reunite his ill grandmother with her ancestral home.
However, it turns into a complicated cross-border affair.
The film also stars Arjun Kapoor and will mark Rakul’s digital debut. It releases on Netflix on May 18, 2021.
