Nothing Queer About Gay Films

  • Gay filmmaker Onir said that ‘Shab’ is a film about relationships, ambition and loneliness.
  • This was his answer when he was asked if his upcoming film, Shab , has an LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) theme. “I don’t want the film to be looked at as an ‘Indian’ or a ‘queer’ or an ‘Indian-queer’ film.
  • I want it to be looked at as just a movie,” he said. Onir is working on three scripts which have no LGBT content and another two that have gay themes.
