Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele Story
Zarine has worked hard for this homosexual character. Beautiful story gay boys around the heroic and lesbian girl Mansi, who is on a road trip. Their aim is to challenge social prejudices and stigma in India about homosexuality.
While all of the mainstream actors feel uncomfortable playing homosexual characters in films, Zarine chose this role to shed light on the evil of society. The film has been directed by Harish Vyas, who had earlier produced ‘English Ke Kahte Hain’.
The film is shot around Delhi, Noida and Dharamshala. In the film, Anshuman Jha is in the lead role who is playing the character of Veer. Along with this, he is also the producer of the film.
