Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt, who has roped in actress Shama Sikander for his debut web series Maaya — an adult love story involving BDSM — says he did not set out to make soft porn.

Vikram Bhatt’s film is said to be about two people who come together using aliases and experiment with BDSM — bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, masochism.

Asked if Shama Sikander was sceptical about doing the web series, Bhatt told IANS: “Shama did have a couple of anxiety attacks, but I told her I am not making some soft porn. My point is it to show it aesthetically.”

“I am not here to compete with the porn industry on the internet. It is an aesthetically made story.”

Maaya will go live on his own web channel, VB on the web, in October.

On asking if Will Maaya be on the lines of the popular erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James, to which Vikram Bhatt replied, “I just say Fifty Shades of Grey because that’s how people understand BDSM. This is the kind of story that I would have endlessly fought with the censors, but nothing would have happened.”

“It’s an adult romance. It is a web series it is a 10-part series. We are half-way through.”

“Maaya is a very intense adult love story. It is about loving somebody and figuring out how to love your own self. It is about various characters in one person.There are various personalities within us, some our close friends know about, some our family knows and there is always that part which only we know about and no one else,” Sikander Sharma had said about Maya in an interview with The Indian Express.com
