Director Sanjay Sharma’s Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun... (2010) was based on gay relationships, and its storyline and visuals had raised a few eyebrows. Now, the makers of the film are planning a sequel to the movie, as they feel society is more liberal about homosexuality today, compared to what it was five years back.
A source from the unit reveals that the makers are organising a promotional event where the cast of the film will fictionally enact a gay marriage. Apparently, politician Priya Dutt has been invited to attend this event. “There will be haldi and mehendi ceremonies, which will be followed by a sangeet,” says the source.
When we contacted Priya via SMS, she replied to us, saying, “They were supposed to come and meet me, and give me a copy of their first film, and show me the concept of their second film. I support equal rights for the LGBT community and decriminalisation, this is a human rights issue. Regarding the movie, I haven’t confirmed anything yet (sic).”
