Amal Sehrawat and Alok Nath
In the special video, Amal will be joined by his “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” co-star Alok Nath.
“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 the country, Amal said: “We have over-hyped the whole issue. In India, sex is still a taboo. Physical intimacy and sexual preference are two different things."
“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 on Friday.
