Phullu Actor Sharib Hashmi Was Scared Of Akshay Kumar's Padman
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|July 2017

One of this week’s release is Sharib Hashmi-starrer, Phullu. Just a day before the release the movie created a storm on social media, with Twitterati lashing out at CBFC for giving the movie an A certificate. You see, Phullu is made on socially relevant topic. It talks about the taboo surrounding menstruation, and is a story of a man who vowed to fight it.

Then there was the fact that the central theme of the movie is very similar to Akshay Kumar’s still-on floors film, Padman.

We got a chance to chat with Sharib about these two major problems. Here are the excerpts:

Twitter is raging with posts calling out CBFC for certifying a socially relevant film like Phullu with an ‘A’ certificate. What is your take on that?

As per me, I don’t get at all why Phullu has been given a A certificate. Its a clean film and addresses a very strong social issue. When the entire day there are ads of sanitary pads running and even kids can watch it. So why can’t we talk about the taboo that is attached to the topic through a film?

Ehrlich Speaks to Mother-Writers

Lara Ehrlich, author of the short story collection Animal Wife (Red Hen Press, 2020), has a deep narrative investment in the ways the world denies women power and agency. In October 2020 that commitment took a new shape with the first episode of her podcast, Writer Mother Monster, a much-needed balm for those of us balancing mothering and writing in the midst of a global pandemic. Aimed at dismantling the myth that women can “have it all,” her podcast is a series of interviews with mother-writers working in all genres, at varied points in their careers, who candidly discuss the joys and complications of that dual identity. Ehrlich, herself a mother-writer—her daughter turns five this year—spoke about what she has gleaned from these exchanges and how they’ve influenced her own approach.
