Earlier it was reported that Rakul Preet Singh has been roped for a film with Ronnie Screwvala’s banner RSVP. It is a direct-to-digital project quirky social drama. Rakul will be seen playing the role of a condom tester.
The film will go on the floors once the situation gets back to normal.
However, Rakul was not the first choice of the makers. An entertainment daily quoted a source as saying, “Before Rakul, the same project was first offered to Sara Ali Khan. Sara, who is also doing the Vicky Kaushal starrer Ashwatthama under the same banner, was approached for the social drama. But after the narration, she politely refused the film. She informed the RSVP team she won’t be able to do the role of a sexecutive in the project but RSVP is speaking to her for another project now.”
After Sara said no to the offer the film was also offered to Ananya Panday. However according to the reports her team felt that the concept and the role was too bold for her. Hence she also declined the role.
The source concludes, “It’s a quirky drama that also aims at destigmatising the use of condoms. Indians 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.”
For those wondering what is sexecutive? Well, big condom manufacturing companies hire people above the age of 18 to test their products. They have to test the durability and quality of their products during their act of intimacy.
