‘Helmet’ unique yet hilarious ride says Rohan Shankar
The upcoming film is co-produced by Dino Morea and Sony Pictures
Rohan Shankar, young and talented screen-writer of “Luka Chuppi” and “Lalbaguchi Rani” is geared up with his third movie Helmet, says it’s a unique and interesting tale.
A comic caper with an interesting and unique twist of condoms, Helmet, stars Aparshakti Khurana & Pranutan Bahl in lead roles with Abhishek Bannerjee & Ashish Verma. The upcoming film is co-produced by Dino Morea and Sony Pictures.
Talking about his journey of Helmet, Rohan said, “I was working with Pooja Bhatt, as first assistant director, the film was titled ‘Love-Affair’ and Soni Razdan was directing it. Unfortunately things didn’t materialize and the movie was never made but I made a friend, another assistant director Satram Ramani who had the story of helmet that he wanted to direct.”
Adding further Rohan said, “I loved the concept and I started developing the script. I have been working on it, since the time of Luka Chuppi. Dino Morea is producing the film along with Sony Pictures. Helmet is a satire, a clean comedy drama based on condoms; it is not a vulgar movie, in fact a movie you can watch with your family. A young ensemble is working in the film and they have done a great job. I don’t think I know or heard of any film in the world, which is based on condoms. You might find some short films, but a full length feature film, there isn’t any. And this film is not just about condoms, there is a love story, a tale of friendship & we have touched some important topics in the journey of the characters“ added Rohan.
On further asking about the film, Rohan said they have to shoot one song & then it’s complete. He doesn’t want to spoil the surprise. He said, “I wish I could reveal much about the film.”
Apart from Helmet, Rohan Shankar’s upcoming films are Mimi and Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari. They are also up for the release. Both the films deal with very interesting subjects & promise a fun ride.
