  • Onir deals with gay sex, child abuse in ‘I Am’

Mumbai, Aug 12 (PTI) Filmmaker Onir is all set to tackle sensitive issues like legalisation of gay sex, child abuse and Maoist crisis in his upcoming film ‘I Am’.

Comprising five short stories, the movie is based on real life incidents and questions law and society, the director said.

"’I am’ talks about identity and ‘Omar’ reveals the nexus between the police and male sex workers to blackmail and abuse gay men, who fear the society and law," the director told PTI.

The film, which has a budget of 1.5 crore is being made by the funds collected through social networking websites and public.

Onir, who has previously directed movies like ‘My Brother Nikhil’ dealing with homosexuality and AIDS and ‘Sorry Bhai’, created a group on Facebook to get support for the movie.

Debutante Saheel Saigal plays the protagonist in Omar.

The movie also stars Rahul Bose and Abhimanyu Singh in pivotal role
