Sharing the motion poster on her social media profile, Rakul Preet captioned it, “No more bunking, it’s time for learning with #Chhatriwali on #ZEE5, premieres 20th Jan @zee5 @tejasdeoskar @sumeetvyas @satishkaushik2178 @rajeshtailang @prachee_shah_paandya @rivarora_ @dollyahluwalia @sanchit421 @iampriyadarshee @ronnie.screwvala @rsvpmovies @soniyeah22 @eshaanphadnis @Zeemusiccompany @manish_kalra_ @zee5global”
A slice-of-life film set in Haryana, ‘Chhatriwali’ is headlined by Rakul who plays the quality control head in a condom factory. The film also stars Sumeet Vyas and Satish Kaushik.
Rakul plays this shy and embarrassed girl, who is hesitant about her job initially, but she soon realises the importance of safe sex and then takes it upon herself to destigmatise the conversation around sex education.
Without being too preachy, the film sets the tone and delivers the message with humour and sensitivity while ensuring that the narrative is entertaining and family-friendly.
The film starts streaming from 20th January 2023.
