Homosexuality may still be a topic that makes you stick your head in the sand everytime you hear about it, it may be considered taboo by the government of India, but none of those will stop film-maker Lokesh from dishing out a movie on gay and the hardship faced by the LGBT community.
"Despite all the focus on the community, many people don't even understand the difference between transgender, gay or lesbian. My film will make people to understand the hardship faced by the LGBT community here. It is a story about how a mother accepts her gay son." Lokesh has said.
Thanking actress Anupama Kumar, who was pivotal in encouraging him to helm the movie in Tamil, Lokesh has said, "Fortunately, actress Anupama Kumar, who played the role of the mother in the pilot film, encouraged me to make this film in Tamil. She also helped me get in actors like Kishore and Jayaprakash."
Titled as En Magan Magizhvan ('My Son Is Gay'), the film stars Abishek George of Demonte Colony fame playing a gay along with newcomer Ashwin Jith, according to a report from Times of India.
