Dunno Y... Na Jaane Kyun to now release on 5 November

NEW DELHI: Sanjay Sharma‘s controversial film on homosexuality, Dunno Y... Na Jaane Kyun, has been put off for a Diwali release on 5 November.

The film, which has been garnering praises and applause internationally for its controversial subject, was supposed to release this on 29 October.

The decision was taken by the producers due to the ire of the Youth unit of a right wing party who kept on sending threats to the makers of the film, given its bold subject of portraying homosexual relationship.

The youth wing says homosexuality is against the culture of the country in spite of the Delhi High Court ruling on Article 377. The gay activists are furious since they consider that it is their legal rights and feel that whoever says being gay is against Indian culture should be educated that it existed since ancient times.

The actors have also been getting threatening mails from hard-line individuals and organisations over the last week warning them with dire consequences if the film was released.

The makers of the film are concerned about the security and concerns of their stakeholders and partners. But to avoid any unforeseen circumstances, they have invited the protesters to watch the film so that they can release it next week without any further obstacles.

Though the film is about the multi-layered emotional conflict in an Anglo Indian Family, it is Bollywood‘s first mainstream film that tackles gender issues and biases against gays.

Gay activists are unanimous that unlike other films like Dostana, which is more of a parody on gays, Dunno Y..Na Jaane Kyun is the first mainstream film that addresses the emotional issues of gays in a sensitive manner.
