The actor opens up on his short film on same-sex marriages
After Sushant Divgikar’s video blasting gay notions went viral, we have another television personality doing a short film on same sex marriages. Actor Amal Sehrawat, whom we know as Sangram Singh from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is starring in a short film on this issue that also has Alok Nath. It is produced by Nazar Battu Productions. He says, “I don’t know who is spreading the story that the film is titled Gay Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. The title has not been finalized so far. I feel we have over-hyped the whole issue. People must understand that everyone is not the same and respect their choices. As an actor, I crave for versatility and this produced allowed me to step out of my comfort zone.”
He says that he does not believe in the stereotyping of actors, especially those in daily soaps. “As an artiste, I am passionate about the story and my character. My image is secondary,” he says.
Amal is also appreciative of the platform that YouTube provides for new content. “I feel the concept of short films and web series is brilliant. There is no censorship issue. If your content is good, people will share it. No wonder there is a huge demand for TV news on the Internet,” he opines.
Amal also has the highest regard for Alok Nath. “He is one of the best actors in the industry. I feel very lucky to share screen space with him,” he says.
