Y-FILMS’ INVITES YOU FOR A SEX CHAT WITH PAPPU & PAPA India & Possibly World’s 1st Sex-Ed Fiction Series

9 months, 50 million views, 3 web series, 6 short films, the world’s 1st Transgender Band, 1 webby & a Cannes Grand Prix Glass Lion later, Y-Films, the youth wing of Yash Raj Films continues to push the envelope putting out path-breaking content. Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa is the most unique show of it’s kind in India – and probably the world. A 5-part fiction series premiering on the Y-Films YouTube channel, it tells a story that will deliver information across different themes related to sex/ sexuality. From masturbation & periods to condoms, pregnancy and homosexuality. In a clean, honest style – with a lot of humor. And certainly a lot of heart.
Starring Anand Tiwari, Kabir Sajid, TV’s favorite Sanjeeda Shaikh, Dum Lagaa Ke Haisha’s 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 & Devang Kakkad with story supervision by Amritpal Bindra & Anand Tiwari. It tells the story of the Watsa family. Featuring a curious 7-year-old boy, Pappu – who shoots the most outrageous questions to his Papa, Anand. Who attempts to answer them to the best of his ability – initially with a lot of awkwardness and eventually with a lot of fun, simple anecdotes. All this while his own father – the very traditional, conservative and possibly 'khadoos' Pitaji – keeps questioning his actions. While his wife, the much pregnant, Shireen and mother, Mataji get torn between this mad conflict and help Pappu & Papa find peace, balance and, of course, add a lot of their own masti to it.
Adds producer-director, Ashish Patil, “The 2nd most populated country in the world, in spite of being the home of texts and temples such as the Kamasutra & Khajuraho… sex is still a very taboo topic in India. Most parents clam up when having to talk to kids about the 'birds & the bees'. Sex education is not even provided in most schools. And when done - not appropriately curated or delivered. Misinformation or lack of information cause further confusion and problems. Which is why you have 40-year old men writing in to sex columns asking if they’ll go blind if they masturbate! Research clearly shows that sex talk with parents is directly linked to safer sexual behavior. This is our attempt to bring this important conversation out of the closet. So come on, let’s talk about sex, baby!”
The series has been heavily researched and ratified by some of the foremost medical experts, top hormonal, gynecological doctors of the country. We hope it creates some genuine social impact, not just locally but globally.
