Vikram Bhatt, who is known for experimenting with new ideas and showcasing bold content, is all set to launch his new series ‘Maaya’ on his own web channel, VB on the web, in October.
‘Maaya’ is an adult love story about two people who come together using aliases and experiment with BDSM. It’s as close to E L James’s erotic.
When asked the filmmaker on why he chose to release it on web channel and not make it into 70mm film, he explains, “In the ongoing censorship debate filmmakers today are clueless about what will be retained. In this worrying scenario, self-censorship is beginning to creep in with writers and directors editing stuff out, convinced it would never pass muster, and that bothers me. ‘Maaya‘ was an idea I’ve had for a while but in a country where even James Bond is not allowed to kiss, I didn’t think BDSM would curry favour.”
