For those who are sick and tired of hearing William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and seeing its umpteen versions on screen, this piece of news will surely act as a breath of fresh air. Producer Ekta Kapoor has now signed director Danish Aslam, (who made his directorial debut with Break Ke Baad) to direct the Shakespearean tale… with a gay twist to it!
Danish feels that we tend to go to extreme ends when it comes to dealing with topic of homosexuality in our films by making it either hilarious or too serious. His film however will be realistic but not exceptionally dramatic. The details of the cast are still awaited.
