Well, this is something. Amal Sehrawat, who plays Sangram Singh in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, is all set to star in a short film titled Gay Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. He will be playing a gay character in this video, and will be starring with Alok Nath, who is his father-in-law in the story.
Here’s what the actor told IANS:
My character’s name is Vimlesh in the film and Alok Nath is playing my father-in-law. This film has a positive message on gay marriage. The film takes a dig at what obstacles are faced during gay marriages in India. It has been told in a very entertaining and refreshing manner.
Asked about his opinion on gay rights in India, Amal said: “What is important is the inner feeling. I know so many wonderful people who have different sexual preferences.”
The short film will be released on the YouTube channel Nazar Battu Productions today, so we’ll be keeping an eye out!
