Directed by Roopa Rao, The ‘Other’ Love Story will be India’s first ever web-series that revolve around a same-sex relationship. According to Roopa, the world needs more conversation about same-sex love and that will be possible only if we take an initiative to break the notion of lesbianism being synonymous with porn. Roopa revealed that this has been her major inspiration to her to write a love story between two girls.
Talking about her upcoming web drama she told ANI, “A love story like this has not been captured in Indian cinema so far, trust me when I say it cause I breathe cinema, cinema is the only constant love affair of my life and a marriage I am fighting to keep up.”
She further added, “If you are a sucker for sweet romance, if your heart belongs to unadulterated 90’s, if you miss the era when the internet/cell phones had not hijacked human emotions, if you want to indulge in something that you have never witnessed or something that has happened to you…(who has not been in love…the first earth shattering, life altering kind of love) – this is for you.”
The ‘Other’ Love Story is all set to hit the Internet this month. Watch a glimpse of the web-show right here:
