Shukranu, an upcoming ZEE5 Original, is all set to premiere on the OTT platform on Valentine’s Day i.e. 14 January 2020. The film stars Divyenndu Sharma, Shweta Basu Prasad and Sheetal Thakur in the lead roles. It is based on the 1976 sterilization drive carried out during the emergency rule in India. At that point, sterilization was not a choice but a compulsion. National Award-winning filmmaker Bishnu Dev Halder is set to showcase the same in a slice-of-life story brought to screen life by Reliance Entertainment. It is mention worthy that the movie is Reliance Entertainment’s debut digital flick.

Recently, the makers released a poster announcing the release date of Shukranu. The poster features two hospital men forcefully carrying Divyenndu as he resists to being sterilized. “Chota parivaar sukhi parivaar, purush nasbandi abhiyaan!” reads a tagline on the poster. Seen it yet?

Shukranu showcases a sequence of events which the protagonist had to deal with and how his marital life, love life and peace of mind were affected owing to the situation. The script is perfectly punctuated with situational comedy and is sure to create a laugh riot! Sharing his excitement, actor Divyenndu said, “We have already started shooting the film. My character Inder goes through a lot of emotions as a result of forced sterilization which makes it a challenge to play as we want it to be sensitive and entertaining both. This film will mark my second outing with Zee5 after the award-winning Badnaam Gali and I am looking for a fruitful associate once again!”

Talking about the film, Shweta Basu Prasad said, “This subject is so interesting and not explored before. We recently started shooting the film and are sure that it will create a ripple of laughter amongst audiences. I am thrilled it is all set to premiere on ZEE5 and looking forward to viewer feedback.”

Adding to this, Sheetal Thakur said, “Shukranu is a unique script and I am ecstatic to be part of it. Working with Divyenndu, Shweta and the entire cast has been amazing so far and I cannot wait for it to be completed and premiere on ZEE5.”

Shukranu went on floors on 26th November 2019. Are you excited to watch the movie exclusively on ZEE?
