Known for bringing in bold content in movies, Vikram Bhatt is back yet again with another movie LOVE GAMES which takes bold to a new level itself! Interacting with him, we got to know what does he think about the film being bold, reason behind having English songs, reinvention of actresses and more.
Here are some excerpts from the interview:
How did this concept come to you?
This concept has been with me from quite a long time. I had to make a movie on the rich spoilt person. And for that person, sex is a painkiller. I wanted to make this story about girl and boy who want to play sex games and what happens when one of them finds love.
Do you think the audience can digest this concept as it is all about bold scenes?
I don't think the youth is judgmental. It's a bold youth. Nowadays lot of people are on dating sites so it's normal. This movie is for all those young people. Youth can welcome the bold film, but I don't think it's a bold film. It's bold for the generation who think these are bold things to do.
Were Tara Alisha Berry, Patralekhaa and Gaurav Arora your initial choices?
Patra had already done CITYLIGHTS and I didn't think she could do such a glamorous role. Then she said, hang on let me do a photoshoot. She did a very hot photoshoot. Then I told her the film has kissing scenes, threesome scenes so don't panic. She said I'll do it. Then Elli Avram came because she thought this is MURDER 4. I said no this is LOVE GAMES and she refused the film. Then Tara came. Gaurav had already auditioned for few projects earlier, but when he walked in for this project I thought yes he is Sam.
So, is the film all about sex, lust and bold scenes?
The film is not about sex and bold scenes. The film is about bold people who are miserable and use sex as a painkiller. It is about sex addiction and then getting out of that addiction. There are two sex addicts because they are filled with pain. One is cured by love but the other refuses and that's what the film is about.
What was the reason behind having English songs in LOVE GAMES?
There are seven English songs in the film that's because I want to talk in a language you understand. The youth understand English easily. I am going to put two more out on Tuesday. The title song and then another song called ‘Poison'.
