Kubbra Sait is playing a student counsellor, who listens to students’ problems and tries to get solutions, in an upcoming youth-oriented web series ‘Rejctx’
Actor Kubbra Sait, who is playing a pivotal role in the upcoming youth-oriented web series 'Rejctx', says that the language of parenting has to be upgraded to understand the mindset of youngsters.
Kubbra is playing a student counsellor in the show, who listens to students' problems and tries to get solutions.
As the show addresses teen problem, asked what kind of problems she faced while growing up, Kubbra said: "I think when I was growing up, for me, the only way to show rebelling is to bunk classes for no reason actually. Today's rebellions are different. They are into drugs and porn. Today's challenges are identified with sexuality. I think today's challenges have a lot to do with parenting of the past as well.
"If parents are not evolving with their children, they really would not be able to understand the internal problems that children are going through. Children will live in suppression. That will make them depressed and they will remain misunderstood by the elders," shared the "Sacred Games" fame actor.
Created by Goldie Behl, "Rejctx" features Sumeet Vyas, Masi Wali, Anisha Victor, Ayush Khurana, Prabhneet Singh, Ridhi Khakhar, Saadhika Syal and Pooja Shetty among others.
"It is important to understand that youngsters rebel because they are trying to tell us something," Kubbra added.
The show has started streaming on the OTT platform ZEE5 from Friday.

Featuring the actor as a transgender named Kuku, the show also stars Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
