Director of Dunno Y…Na Jaane Kyun, which features Bollywoods first gay kiss, has insisted it was not an attempt to get more publicity for the film.
Speaking about his debut film as a director, Sanjay Sharma said to the BBC Asian Network, that the idea for a gay kiss scene was not a publicity stunt. He also thought the cencorship board will allow the scene to go ahead.
“At the moment I’m not thinking about any political or censor problems,” Sharma told BBC Asian Network.
According to Digital Spy, when asked about the gay kiss scene, Kapil said:
“Me and my co-actor were hesitant and feeling somewhat odd about the whole thing but the director told us to be sincere in our role.
“Added to that, during my first scene – a gay party – my parents turned up on set.
“I was wearing these hot shorts and a jacket. These drag queens were all around me so that was definitely very awkward. But, after three or four days I became immune to who was there.”
In 2009 the High Court in India overturned the law against homosexuality.
The release of the film is planned for May of this year.
