Tollywood director greets lesbian heroines!
With homosexuality having been decriminalized by the Supreme Court, 'AWE!' director Prasanth Varma is a happy man. He is perhaps the first filmmaker in Tollywood who has portrayed a homosexual relationship in a non-stereotypical manner. In 'AWE!', Nithya Menen and Eesha Rebba are lovers and their same-sex relationship is eventually accepted by the latter's elders.
"Love is love. #RIPSection377," Varma tweeted out, sharing a still of Nithya's character kissing Eesha's from the critically-acclaimed entertainer.
The director is currently doing an investigative thriller with Dr. Rajasekhar. It's set in the 1980s. Reportedly, he will also do a web series for producer Manjula Ghattamaneni (Mahesh Babu's sister) for a digital streaming site.
