After 'Takht', Karan Johar to make homosexual love story?

Karan Johar's support for LGBTQ community is well known. And now the head honcho of Dharma Productions wants to bring a story from the community to silver screen.

Given the social stigma associated with the LGBTQ community, KJo feels it's high time to normalize homosexuality in Bollywood.

So, KJo is planning to make a movie which chronicles a homosexual love story.

Statement

KJo wants to make a mainstream movie on LGBTQ community

Discussing about his project, KJo said that he's willing to make the movie with two leading actors.

However, he doesn't have any names in mind as of now.

"Being a leading filmmaker, I can make movies on the subject. I would love to make a homosexual love story and would want to cast two leading actors in it," he added.

Hope

'Ready to make a legit gay-story, but..,' KJo shares worries

KJo is quite determined to make this unique love story. However, he has his share of apprehensions.

"I am ready to make a legit gay story, but I really hope the Indian audience is ready to accept it," he said. We hope they do, Karan!

Reportedly, he will begin working on it in 2020 after the release of his multi-starrer project Takht.

KJo's 'Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh' was well appreciated

Interestingly, this isn't his first attempt at making a movie dealing with homosexuality. Earlier, he made a short film Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh for Bombay Talkies in 2013. The film focused on the romantic spark between characters of Randeep Hooda and Saqib Saleem.

Mistake?

But, we shouldn't forget Karan Johar-produced 'Dostana'

But, we shouldn't forget Karan Johar-produced 'Dostana'

It's appreciable that Karan is thinking of bringing homosexuality to mainstream cinema.

Probably this would undo the damage he had made in Dostana (2008), especially in the song Maa da ladla bigad gaya.

The film, where two guys were to pretend as a gay couple, was supposed to be funny, but the song took away all of it.

This time Karan, please be sensitive!

'ELKDTAL'

Bollywood taking progressive steps with Sonam Kapoor's 'ELKDTAL'

Meanwhile, thankfully Bollywood is taking progressive steps by making movies on the topic of homosexuality.

The recent one to join the league is Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which will certainly push the queer conversation forward in the country.

The movie features Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla in key roles and will release on February 1.
