Abhishek - John as gay lovers in Dostana

The one minute first look promo of Dostana has finally aired and as expected it shows lead actors Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham depicting gay lovers.

The promo opens with the signature Dharma tune of Kal Ho Na Ho, with the Miami skyline and a pink convertible speeding on an open road. Soon, the mellow tune gives way to a bouncy hip-hop number, and a bare-bodied John Abraham emerges from the water in yellow trunks. Without wasting much time, the promo then cuts the scene where John and Abhishek are doing the tango, with Bachchan Jr, holding a rose in his teeth. In another scene John announces to a woman, “Hum gay hain!” and pointing to Abhishek adds, “Yeh mera boyfriend hai!”

If the film is as the promo terms it to be, then this will be the first time in Bollywood history that 2 major actors have gone ahead and played gay characters in a film… and that as lovers.
