Divyendu Sharma who is best known for his role as liquid in Pyaar Ka Punchnama is all set to make his short film debut with Virgins, where he will be seen playing the role of a Virgin boy who is about to get married.
"Frankly, there's a lot of unnecessary hype about virginity. There's so much of it that I found it funny - the way everyone seems to be interested in knowing others' virginity status. So I wanted actors with a light touch and capable to delivering poker faced humour. Divyendu, with his boyish charm and fantastic comic timing fit the bill perfectly. And once he read the script and met me, he hopped on board immediately," says Director Sandeep A Varma.
Virginity is one of the most common and a hot topic of discussion in today's youth. The film brings out a funny yet informational take on pre-marital sex in today’s youth. Director Sandeep A Varma after the much critically acclaimed Manjunath, was really keen to do something funny and this fit the bill. “Foremost reason to do this short was the kind of questions it was asking about our society, our conditioning and our understanding of sexuality. Its multilayered narrative is crisp and precise. And off course Hamara Movies has been doing some really interesting stuff so it made all d more sense to collaborate with them and with Sandeeps' vision everything seemed just right,"says Divyendu.
The film is directed by Sandeep A Varma and is produced by Vinay Mishra and Preety Ali.
