Premiered on the 2nd anniversary of ZEE5– the largest OTT platform in India, Shukranu is a humorous take on the grave issue of forced sterilizations on Indian men during The Emergency declared in 1975. Divyenndu plays Inder, who falls in love with Akriti, essayed by Sheetal Thakur. But things take a hilarious turn when Inder is dragged to get a vasectomy (nasbandi) done. Unfortunately, this takes place just two days before he gets married to Reema, beautifully portrayed by Shweta Basu Prasad. Directed by the critically acclaimed Bishnu Dev Halder and financed by Reliance Entertainment, Shukranu- #PyaarKiKatiPatang has been received well with loud laughs and open minds!

Though shown as a comedy, #shukranu *ring @divyenndu, @shweta_official @Sheetal__Thakur is a grim reminder of the Emergency excesses & what could have happened if Sanjay Gandhi had his way for a longer period.
This @ZEE5India original is worth a #ValentinesDay watch.
