Ram Gopal Varma is disappointed after theatres refused to screen his lesbian film, ‘Khatra’; says ‘anything related to sex still remains a taboo’ | Hindi Movie News


Ram Gopal Varma recently opened up about multiplexes refusing to screen his lesbian film, ‘Khatra’ and wondered why the subject of homosexuality is still taboo in India.

In an interview with a news portal, the filmmaker said that anything related to sex still remains a taboo, especially a subject which usually people look down upon or don’t want to talk about.

Elaborating further, RGV added that even today, despite the Supreme Court repealing section 377, nearly four-and-a-half years back, people are not willing to talk about it. The director also went on to say that he has rarely heard people discuss it in public. He added that when you are forcing it to be put out in the public, everybody’s antenna just goes up.

When it came to his film, they had to find a middle path of not having the themes imposed on the posters and stuff, and the audience discovering it when they step into the theatre. For the filmmaker, the fight continues. He also added that the corporate is more sensitive to public sentiment. Nobody knows how the public will actually react, but they feel that they might feel embarrassed or distasteful, RGV concluded.

Ram Gopal Varma has films like, ‘Satya’, ‘Kaun?’, ‘Company’, ‘Bhoot’ and ‘Sarkar’ to his credit.
