'Dostana is not about gay sexuality'

    09th Nov 2008     16.00 IST    

Dostana Though the promos of Dostana would have you believe that the movie is about a gay couple, its director Tarun Mansukhani says the film is basically about friendship.

The movie, starring Abhishek Bachchan , Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham , has already kicked up a lot of curiosity among movie buffs with its promos showing Abhi and John as a gay couple, walking hand-in-hand on Miami beaches.

Shedding light on the characters, Tarun Mansukhani says: "John and Abhishek lie that they are a gay couple, and so all other characters (in the story) presume them to be gay, which brings in the fun quotient to the film."




But then, don't John and Abhi behave as gay even though they lie to the characters. Hasn't the director stereotyped the gay community in 'Dostana'?

"They (Abhi and John) don't behave as gay. They behave as normal friends. In fact, gays never behave in any particular way. Their behaviour is not different from all of us. It's our own perception about gays that makes us think that they behave in a particular way," Mansukhani clarifies.

Stressing that his film is not about gay sexuality: Mansukhani said: "Bollywood has made films on a variety of subjects...but no films have been made on gay sexuality till now. So I added it to the film. And these days, everyone specially the younger generation jokes about gay. But the film is not about gay sexuality. It's basically about friendship and its ups and downs."

Shot in Miami, 'Dostana' also has brief appearances by Bobby Deol and Shilpa Shetty . The film is produced by Karan Johar and is set to release on November 14.
