Sex chat with Pappu and Papa is the most unique show of its kind in India.
Producer-director Ashish Patil said, “The second-most populated country in the world, in spite of being the home of texts and temples such as the Kamasutra and Khajuraho… Sex is still a very taboo topic in India. Most parents clam up when having to talk to kids about the ‘birds and the bees’.
“Research clearly shows that sex talk with parents is directly linked to safer sexual behaviour. This is our attempt to bring this important conversation out of the closet. So come on, let’s talk about sex.”
Starring Anand Tiwari, Kabir Sajid, Sanjeeda Shaikh, Alka Amin and veteran Sachin Pilgaonkar, the series marks the directorial debut of Ashish Patil, head of Y-Films, and has been written by Gopal Datt and Devang Kakkad with story supervision by Amritpal Bindra and Tiwari.
