Rakul Preet has talked about taking up the role of a condom-tester in her upcoming movie Chhatriwali. The film, directed by Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar, tells the story of a chemistry graduate who ends up accepting the job of a quality tester for condoms as she needs money. The producers have described the movie as a family entertainer that wants to de-stigmatise the use of condoms with comedy. Rakul Preet recently explained why the movie which is centred around condoms is still a family movie.

Rakul, who will also be seen as a gynaecologist in her upcoming movie Doctor G, said that there should not be a taboo around these topics. She added that Chhatriwali is not a preachy movie, but portrays the reality of society in a light-hearted way.
She told Pinkvilla, “Each one of us is born the way that you are going to show in Doctor G. A gynaecologist is a very important doctor but we look down upon gynaecology as a department. If someone has to go to gynaec, we say so go with your mother, not father, why? Father bhi to wahi se paida hue the (Father was also born the same way). The point is why have we made it a taboo? Don’t be shameless about it, but be aware of it.”
Rakul added that Chhatriwali, which also stars Sumit Vyas, should be treated as a family film. She explained, “We are not showing anything sleazy. There is not one kiss in the film. It’s a journey of a small-town girl and it’s in humour. She stumbles upon this job, she also looks down upon it (initially).”
Rakul revealed that she was also a bit skeptical about playing the role, but she took the opinion of her parents who gave it a green signal. She said that she runs every script by her parents before accepting it, and told them a one-line plot of Chhatriwali as well.
While Chhatriwali’s release date has not been confirmed yet, Rakul will be seen in Doctor G on June 17 this year. The social drama film, directed by Anubhuti Kashyap, also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Shefali Shah.
