You have probably not heard of 'Brahman Naman' yet. Brahman Naman is a film that is winning accolades internationally, and this is the film that has been the launchpad for Siddharth Mallya's acting career. Yes, that's right!
Just when you thought this Mallya kid was never going to do anything worth remembering him for (except having dated Deepika, perhaps), Sid Mallya has surprised us all with his debut in acting. He has chosen a very unconventional film too! Brahman Naman happens to be a sex comedy. It is like the Amrican Pie set in India, with a coming of age story of four young Brahman lads in Bangalore.
The film was showcased at the Sundance Festival and many other international film festivals have also shown an interest in screening this film. Netflix will also stream this film globally, having made a seven figure deal with the makers!
This is what the director Quashiq Mukherjee had to say about releasing the film in India, "We are really hoping that this film gets out because it's really important for us to understand that we need an American Pie, we need an Indian Pie. We need to understand where our sexuality is, where it came from and most importantly how men behave, how boys are raised, how they are taught about gender and sexuality."
