ZEE5 announces new film titled ‘Shukranu’



ZEE5 announces its next original film Shukranu, based on sterilization which was forced upon individuals during the emergency rule in India in 1976. Sterilization was no longer a choice — it was a mandate.

Shukranu, a slice of life story starring Divyenndu, Shweta Basu Prasad and Sheetal Thakur is the debut digital film produced by Reliance Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and directed by national award-winning Bishnu Dev Halder. It is set to exclusively premiere on ZEE5 in early 2020.

Shukranu showcases a sequence of events which the protagonist had to deal with and how his marital life, love life and peace of mind was affected owing to the situation. The script is perfectly punctuated with situational comedy and is sure to create a laugh riot!

Sharing his thoughts, acclaimed director Bishnu Dev Halder said, “Shukranu is a humorous take on one of the dark phases of our democracy when government family planning programme was forced upon the people. The idea is to make people laugh while talking about a serious issue such as this. The story dives deep into the many comical situations the protagonist Inder, essayed by Divyenndu, faces when he is forced to undergo sterilization. We have had multiple narrations and all of them have reverberated with laughter. I am excited to bring this script alive and cannot wait for audiences to watch it on ZEE5.”
