Vikram Bhatt is launching a web series called Maaya that revolves around BDSM and sex, which is loosely based on the popular book and movie Fifty Shades Of Grey.
The lead of the series is Shama Sikandar, the actress who has featured in a few Bollywood movies before starring in the TV serial Yeh Meri Life Hai.
Maaya is a very intense adult love story. It is about loving somebody and figuring out how to love your own self. It is about various characters in one person.There are various personalities within us, some our close friends know about, some our family knows and there is always that part which only we know about and no one else.
On the comparisons with Fifty Shades of Grey
Yes some parts have been taken. You can see the concept of BDSM pictured, but in a different way. It is a love story but with a different angle. It is more intense and more realistic.
And finally, on shooting sex scenes
It’s funny to call them as sex scenes or bold scenes because it doesn’t need a tag. It is as natural as the other things you do. You eat food, you go out, you party, you have sex. It is that normal but by putting such words you make it look abnormal, out of this world.
So, I don’t think we should use these words. It is a love story for me and it will have scenes according to the requirement of the script. It will surely have some beautiful scenes to which I am really looking forward to shoot.
