Ekta Kapoor to produce love story based on gay relationship


Director Danish Aslam who made his directorial debut with the average film Break Ke Baad, starring Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone, is all set to give another shot to direction.

According to a leading tabloid, Danish is planning to give a modern twist to the classic Shakespearan tragedy Romeo and Juliet in his next. But Danish is not your ordinary storyteller, as his love story will have a gay spin to it.

Balaji head Ekta Kapoor will be producing the film.

A source close to the tabloid has been quoted saying, “The script has been written by Anu Menon who last directed the Ali Zaffar-Aditi Rao Hydari starrer London, Paris, New York. Danish took an instant liking to her quirky concept and was ready to bring it on screen. The film is likely to go on the floors in May.”The source also added, “Danish has had several meetings with the head honchos at Balaji Motion Pictures who have green-lighted the project.”

“The casting will be locked only at the end of March. The story revolves around two guys from warring families and a girl. One of the guys is a closet homosexual. That makes the film daringly different.”

When Danish was contacted to confirm the news, he said, “Right now, I’m not authorised to talk about the project. Please call Balaji for details. It’s my film, but they are the producers so it’s better that they make an official announcement.”
