Kartik Aaryan to play gay character in Dostana 2

Kartik Aaryan to play gay character in Dostana 2
It is a sign of Indian cinemas maturation that leading men are no longer apprehensive about playing gay characters. While the taboo broke long back in the West, Indian cinema took a while to grow up in matters regarding sexual orientation. Kartik Aryan may well be the mainstream star of Bollywood to play a full-fledged gay character in a Hindi film. If sources are to be believed, Kartik and newcomer Lakshya play gay characters in the sequel to Karan Johar s 2008 hit Dostana.Says a source, In Dostana, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham were only pretending to be gay. In Dostana 2 , Kartik and debutant Lakshya play gay character. It remains to be seen how much maturity Dostana 2 will display in dealing with a theme thats still raw new and relatively forbidden for Indian cinema.
