Anupama, JP, Kishore team up for ‘My Son is Gay’

Chennai, Feb 23 (IANS) Actors Anupama Kumar, Jayaprakash alias JP and Kishore have come together to work in upcoming Tamil drama “My Son is Gay”, a story about an emotional relationship between a mother and her gay son.

The city’s debutant filmmaker Lokesh Kumar is directing as well producing the film, which will go on the floors next month in Kerala.

“Originally, the film was planned to be made in Hindi. However, due to language barrier and budget constraints, it never took off despite receiving initial funding. We’re now reviving it in Tamil and I am extremely fortunate to be working with a very supportive team,” Lokesh told IANS.

The young director considers himself extremely fortunate to have talented actors such as Anupama, JP and Kishore on board.

“All of them play very important roles. Anupama plays the mother who has to deal with her gay son. The film is a very touching and positive journey of a mother who is unable to accept the fact that her son is gay,” he said.

Tipped to be an art film, Lokesh says the film is not for audiences who seek entertainment from cinema.

“It falls in the category of parallel cinema. Like ‘Visaaranai’, we plan to send out film to as many film festivals as possible. The fact that audiences have wholeheartedly accepted ‘Visaaranai’ gives me the confidence that they’ll accept my film too,” he added.

Actor Ashwin Jith will essay the role of a gay boy.
