Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shivdasani, the lead actors of ‘Kya Kool Hain Hum 3’, have initiated the beginning of kool condom challenge in India, which has created some strong buzz on the internet as well. While the poster and the trailer of ‘Kya Kool Hain Hum 3’ led to various controversies and were referred to as ‘obscene’ by a large number of people, the underlying purpose of the kool condom challenge seems both relevant and necessary.
Sex is still a matter of taboo in India. Despite several proposals coming up about including sex education as a part of the academics in schools, the idea was never materialized, thanks to an orthodox part of parents and teachers. We still lack an open mindset and an environment of free discussion about sex; as a result of which, sex is yet not accepted as a simple biological necessity and is often involved with unnecessary social stigmas. This, directly and indirectly, affects sexually transmitted diseases and sexual crimes.
This is where both the actors want to hit hard. They are trying to encourage everyone to use condom and remain safe and hygenic; as well as engage into scientific conversations about sex, while blowing the hush-hush away. Source
