With the changing trends, Bollywood has also been witnessing a lot of changes with respect to its plots, storyline and outlook. Kissing onscreen, protagonists in grey shades, live-in relationships, pre-marital sex, extra marital affairs have already found place in the industry. Now to get on the list is "homosexuality" with special focus on gay relationship.

Initially all the heroes in Bollywood were portrayed as blue-blooded heterosexuals while heroines looDOSTANA, KAL HO NA HOked only for the opposite sex.

However, with the change in outlook of Indian society Bollywood too became inclusive.

Karan Johar's new flick "Dostana" will see the male protagonists Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham pretending to be gay with moonlight dance and all.

A few years ago, "Kal Ho Na Ho" saw Shahrukh and Ali Khan">Saif Ali Khan portraying homosexuality in a humorous way.

Even director Madhur Bhandarkar depicted gay relationship within glamour industry in his critically acclaimed "Page3" and "Fashion".

The trend has really changed, today more of gay element is found in Bollywood movies and this element is no more limited upto few scenes but a movie on a whole. However, the purpose is just to add humour but very soon, it may find its way as a critical subject for making films.

So what do you think are we ready for a "Brokeback Mountain" in Bollywood?

SHAHRUKH GAY? ALREADY HAPPENED!It''s amazing how fans of Shahrukh Khan are saying that keep him out of the topic when he''s already played a gay in his first movie, (telefilm) In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones. What do you all say about that?
