Ram Gopal Varma also went on to say, “‘Khatra: Dangerous’ starring Naina Ganguly and Apsara Rani, as a lesbian love couple passed censor with an ‘A’ certificate and I frankly would have been disappointed if it didn’t get an ‘A’.
Ram Gopal Varma continued, “Lots didn’t expect ‘Khatra: Dangerous’ to pass through Censor because it’s a love story between two women but same-sex relationships have been legitimised when Section 377 was repealed.
“‘Khatra: Dangerous’ will be releasing in both theatres and OTT as soon as the release date is finalised sometime in March. The film is about a crime drama with a lesbian couple.”
