Speaking to the news agency, Pranutan Bahl said, “I believe it always takes time for any kind of social stigma to completely go away but we all are hoping that with Helmet we can start a healthy dialogue about the fact that why there’s a taboo attached to something which is actually very normal.” She added, “It is a very wise thing to purchase a condom and use it.”
Bahl said, “we really hope Helmet will bring about at least a little change. One thing I like the most about the film is that it gives a beautiful social message in a very funny and quirky way.”
Helmed by Satramm Ramani, Helmet also stars Aparshakti Khurana and Abhishek Banerjee in lead roles, along with Ashish Verma and Vikram Singh Sodha in supporting roles. It is produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Raaz star Dino Morea. The film is a social satire based on the issue that is faced by many Indians on regular basis. It touches upon the taboo subject of using and buying condoms with a hearty comedic twist.
