Never before has it happened in the history of Bollywood films that a complete frontal nude scene has been shot. But then one can expect this from Love Sex aur Dhokha that has chosen the unconventional route of telling a tale of love, sex and betrayal through candid points of view.
The controversial scene in question was shot with Indian actors with an approximate of 4 people in the room while the cameras were rolling.
Reveals a source, “The script required the scene to be shot with full frontal. It took a lot of courage for both the actors to do it. LSD does not aim to shock audiences but does aim at mirroring reality".
It is this reality factor which is said to be the USP of LSD, a co-production of Ekta Kapoor/Shobha Kapoor and Priya Sreedharan (who was incidentally also the Executive Producer of Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!). A digital film with (cliched as it may sound) a hidden camera playing a character by itself, LSD features a bunch of newcomers with no mainstream trappings to it. Also, sex and voyeurism form a major driving force of the narrative of this film which is now ready and marching towards 19th March release.
Balaji Motion Pictures and Dibaker Banerjee"s Love Sex aur Dhokha talks about how voyeurism is indeed a reality in today's society. “The content and scenes in the film will be slightly difficult for audiences to digest but once they know the thought behind it, they will realize it"s the cold hard truth. After all somebody needs to inform audiences and question the decisions they take in day to day life", adds the source.
But who are these actors, is the million dollar question? Why have their identities been kept under the wraps? Yes, the provocative nature and content of the film has already got mouths talking but if there is one thing the team is tight lipped about, it"s the actors and the story of their discovery.
Reveals a source from Balaji, “Ekta and Dibaker went on a nation wide hunt for these actors after the script was in place. Since the film mirrors reality, having known faces would not have done justice to the story." This is the reason why the makers have adopted a marketing strategy of not going out with the LSD"s actors" identities since it would only increase the audience"s curiosity.
Adds the source, “LSD has been in the news for its offensive lyrics, controversial subject, cuss words used in the film and never seen before nude scenes. Not revealing the actors starring in the film will only further pique audience curiosity about the film."
