Bollywood Actors Prove They’re Totally Down for Making Out With Each Other

Okay, maybe you’ve never heard of Manish Paul and Sikander Kher. They’re not exactly household names in the U.S. … but maybe they should be.

At a press junket for an upcoming movie, a reporter asked them if they’d consider doing a movie about homosexuality. They were a little startled, but then someone egged them on: “why don’t you guys just kiss?”

And so they did. Kind of? It seemed like it might’ve been a stagey hand-blocking kiss that was not totally real? Hard to tell.

But at least they went for it to the extent that they did. So, that went better than it could have. Maybe they just need a little more kissing practice?

The film they’re promoting, BTW, is called Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive, and it’s a comedy about whether or not Osama Bin Laden was really killed. So that should be a laugh riot.

Some Bollywood actors have complained about a culture of predatory casting — Ranveer Singh recently told a story about a director who sought sexual favors in exchange for roles. So there may be some unpleasant cultural baggage attached to homosexuality in the country’s filmmaking community (not that this country is much better).

But there’s also progress being made. Onir, a prominent director, praised a recent court ruling that ended the criminalization of homosexuality. “This law should have been scrapped the day the Britishers left India,” he said. “So hopefully, the 2009 verdict of the Delhi Court, that decriminalized gay sex among consenting adults, will be back soon.”
