Riteish Deshmukh, who turned producer with the Marathi release, Balak Palak, is organising a screening of the movie for the students of the school he went to. The film stresses upon the importance of sex education and how parents and mentors deal with the subject.

The screening will be held at Inox theatre today for the higher secondary students of GD Somani Memorial School, Cuffe Parade. “I was inspired by some critics who said in their reviews that every balak (child) and palak (parent) should watch this film. It makes you think about the importance of sex education,” says Riteish, adding, “I wanted to share this work of ours with my school GD Somani and its students.

I’m glad the principal agreed to screen the film for the students.”
