Actor Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap Khurrana praise the multi-starrer Khandaani Shafakhana, which opened in the theatres today.
The film is directed by debutant director Shilpi Dasgupta, and starring Sonakshi Sinha and rapper-turned-film actor Badshah in lead roles. The supporting cast includes Varun Sharma and Annu Kapoor.
Ayushmann Khurrana, who watched the film last night at a special screening, took to his social media and wrote, “#KhaandaniShafakhana has its heart at the right place. A very relevant film on sex education…#BaatTohKaro @sonakshisinha gives her career best. @varunsharma90 is super funny and @Its_Badshah is such a revelation. Fab job paaji. And such a sweet debut by @Priyanshjora”
Tahira Kashyap Khurrana also praised the film. She wrote, “@sonakshisinha you were so so good as baby Bedi!! @Its_Badshah whattaaa revelation! Tusi kamaal ho paaji! @varunsharma90 brightened up the screen every time! #priyansh my theatre buddy I am so happy for you! #shilpidasgupta #rishipunjabi & loved the Bgm #KhaandaniShafakhana”
The film chronicles Baby Bedi (Sonakshi), who is a quick-witted small-town Medical Representative from an orthodox Punjabi family; despite her earnest efforts, her modest income never matches up to the mounting bills, resulting in multiple loans and creditors knocking at the family door constantly.
One day, she is presented with a unique opportunity. She must choose between her utterly ordinary life or bail her family out of their perennial money crunch by selling off an infamous Clinic which she inherits from her estranged uncle. The “catch” though is the rather unusual conditions he has laid out in his WILL. What follows is the no-holds-barred journey of a girl in a hush-hush world. Along this hilarious journey, this small-town girl will break taboos, open hearts and ultimately, minds.
