Drama Done Right: Gay Lead in Indian Soap Opera

The treatment of the subject has been carried out in a fairly respectful fashion so far … heartening that it isn’t satire ( Apart from the odd snickering on the lines of “Thats why he runs from his wife!!” …but heck. That does happen. Both snickering and running from the wife. )

The Star Plus TV Show “Maryada Lekin Kab Tak” recently revealed a gay lead character … ooomph!!

You have to watch the following YouTube Big OMG video!! …if only for the dramatic background music.  Gaurav is…Gay and heres a  Star News video about the Big Reveal as well !

And just as a teaser – There is even a forehead kiss. Thats right! A show of affection between two gay men on a Hindi Soap Opera! and not just a bromance-dude hug…Its a tender forehead kiss with anguished expressions and everything.

 

[ Big Thank You to Reza for the heads up and YouTube video and Trikone Chicago for the Star News link ! ]
