‘Youngsters don’t consider sex as taboo topic’
Actor Ranveer Singh, who has earlier endorsed a condom brand, says sex as a topic is not considered taboo by the youth any more even though it is considered “dirty” and “a stigma” by the larger population in the country.
“Sex in our country is a subject of stigma. For the longest time, sex in India has always been spoken and thought of as a dirty thing, a sleazy subject and always kept in the closet,” Ranveer said at a screening of the online series based on sex education ‘Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa’. Ranveer had made news when he endorsed a condom brand a few years ago and had also featured in some steamy ads.“Of course, we have our culture and we live in a society which is traditionally very conservative, but times are changing. With the advent of the internet, things have opened up.
“Kids today have access to all kinds of information.” Ranveer will next be seen on the big screen in Aditya Chopra’s Befikre.
In another incident, the actor got irked when actress Deepika Padukone was quizzed about their rumoured engagement, and requested mediapersons to ask good questions. There have been rumours about the wedding of Ranveer and Deepika since last one month, with some reports suggesting that the Bajirao Mastani co-stars are already engaged.When Deepika was asked about her rumoured engagement, Ranveer looked at her and said, “Let’s go.”
The Piku actor said “Thanks, bye”, to reporters before walking away.Ranveer then told reporters, “Jis type ki film (referring to Madaari) dekhi hai, uska toh lihaaz karen, is type ki fizool ki baatein na karen (show some regard for the film that is being screened here, do not talk nonsense).”
