Bollywood is evolving: Karan Johar
Filmmaker Karan Johar on Sunday said there has been an evolution in depiction of sexuality in Bollywood and his film, Dostana 2 will treat it with utmost sensitivity.
The film is a sequel to 2008’s Dostana.
The new film features Kartik Aaryan, Janhvi Kapoor and debutant Lakshya.
The filmmaker said Dostana was a conversation starter, so there was a depiction of sexuality that was “caricaturish, even in a cinema that I had produced” but today he wouldn’t do that.
“The evolution is from one Dostana to the other. Dostana one that released in 2008 and the Dostana 2 that’s releasing in 2020, you will see that the representation is accurate, non-caricaturish and on point, talking about sexuality in a way that will not make you cringe while watching it. “So therein lies the fact that in the last 12 years, there has been a solid change in the way we depict gay characters,” he said.
”Cinema is such an impressionable medium. It were just things that you didn’t think of and then when you’re told, you realise that they are true, you’ve to apologise to the society that you possibly scarred as a result of what you put out there.
“I can’t take back those songs that I put out there that have objectified women but I can say for a fact that I will not do it again,” he added. (PTI)
