ZEE5, India’s largest home-grown OTT platform has consistently delivered back-to-back blockbusters and taking that legacy forward, recently announces the premiere of Helmet, a social, quirky comedy on 3rd September.
After the grand success of Dial 100, the streaming giant partnered once again with Sony Pictures for this original film. Set in the heartland, Helmet highlights one of the most pertaining issues in our society – the resistance of people to buy condoms, albeit in a non-preachy and entertaining manner.
‘Helmet’, stars Aparshakti Khurana, Pranutan Bahl, Abhishek Banerjee, and Ashish Verma in pivotal roles.
Recently, the cast of the film was seen distributing helmets to the Bollywood pap community. This was the casts’ way of thanking the photographers for their relentless effort in covering the Bollywood stars and being on the run constantly.
Commenting on the same, actor Aparshakti Khurana shares, “We are thankful for the constant support from the pap community. It is because of them that we feel ‘seen’ and loved. We also know the kind of running around they do to capture us, and they do it with a smile. So, this is our way of showing our gratitude and we hope that they continue to support us for our upcoming movie ‘Helmet’ as well’.
‘Helmet’ is a hilarious exploration of small-town naivety and offers insight into a milieu where even accessing a birth-control device is wrought with multiple social challenges and psychological hang-ups. The makers released the trailer last week which received flying reviews and the fans can’t wait for this quirky and funny ride with ‘Helmet’ – the first Indian film on a birth-control device.
Produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and actor Dino Morea’s DM Movies and Directed by Satramm Ramani with Screenplay & Dialogues by Rohan Shankar. Set to premiere on 3rd September on ZEE5, ‘Helmet’ is a clean and witty entertainer with a message.
