INDIAN'S LESBIAN Love story win maximum award NOMINATION IN NEW YORK...

Set in the 90's in Bengaluru, The Other Love Story, tells the tale of two women falling in love at a time when same-sex relationships were an 'unforgiving crime' in the country



Endless possibilities of new media have brought many into the limelight with their experiments, but Roopa Rao's web-series on same-sex love seem more promising. Roopa's courage to compete with popular media with a story that would raise many eyebrows in her country, has now received recognition beyond boarders.





The Other Love Story has scored the highest number of nominations at the NYC Web Fest, with six nominations.  Roopa told the Times of India: "I am thrilled that we have been noticed by a platform like this and that we are competing on a global level for some of the top awards at the festival."



Talking about her upcoming web drama she told said: "A love story like this has not been captured in Indian cinema so far, trust me when I say it cause I breathe cinema, cinema is the only constant love affair of my life and a marriage I am fighting to keep up."



She further added: "If you are a sucker for sweet romance, if your heart belongs to unadulterated 90's, if you miss the era when the internet/cell phones had not hijacked human emotions, if you want to indulge in something that you have never witnessed or something that has happened to you...(who has not been in love...the first earth shattering, life altering kind of love) - this is for you."
